Everyone knows how much I love colour and pattern, but it’s so important to me to stay colourful in the winter. Between the chilly, foggy mornings and the evenings that are beginning a little too early in the day, I think we could all use a pop of colour every now and then to lighten up the day. Nothing can lift the spirits like a letterbox red, emerald green or sunny yellow. A bright coat will do just the trick and you won’t be able to hide the smile you’ve got on while wearing such a fun piece. Walking around London is a sea of black and grey but winter style doesn’t have to be plain- it’s entirely possible to be bold and colourful in a colder climate. Nothing puts a spring in my step on a cold day like a colourful weekday look.
The best way to be bright is to invest in some outerwear in all colours of the rainbow. A bright coat is fun and functional at the same time and making your coat your statement piece is easily adjusted. You can take if off when necessary (shops and offices are really pumping out the heating at the moment) and you won’t struggle trying to pair it with the right pair of pants or top. There is always a bit more flexibility when it comes to the outer layers, which makes a statement jacket that much more appealing!
A bright jacket is also a great opportunity to mix and match with textures and patterns. Although we all love a big bold colour statement, that doesn’t mean the fun has to be limited to just the colour. A bright pink can be cut with some white stripes, or a bold red with black dots. Texture is just as important. Are you thinking sherpa? Tweed? Flannel? The fabric opportunities are just as endless the colour choices.
TIP: No need to stick to a simple trench coat! Think blazer, shawl, zip-up, button down… the list goes on! Shop my vibrant coats below and find your colourful weekday look.
