Pink is a big colour trend for Spring. I am not necessarily a fan of following the latest trends nor do I adhere to the so called “rules or advice” for older women. I think you can wear pink at any age. The trick is how you wear pink. A smart pink coat may be the perfect way to tackle this trend.
The important criteria is the style. The same applies to grey hair. If you want to let your hair go grey feel free. If you fancy wearing pink go ahead. Just make sure that the style is modern and fresh and not “granny like” Even though you may be a granny as I am.
I am wearing a simple pink unstructured wool coat by Mango. (I just checked I can’t believe it is sold out already. I does say add to wish list. It has obviously been popular. It may come back into stock). My very comfortable Stan Smith’s Nordstrom and Topshop. Straight leg classic jeans (old and very comfy). Same style still available Nordstrom and JDWilliams
Having chosen a sophisticated style for your pink make sure you team it with similarly stylish accessories. Comfortable street style trainers can add an edge.
Underneath the Mango coat I am wearing a grey merino wool sweater. I bought it in the sale from MeandEm . Now sold out however they offer great knitwear all year round. The black and white shopper was a birthday gift from a friend last year. I think she bought it at Conran (The exact style is no longer available).

In the photo above I have added a belt and scarf. Worth a try but I think I prefer the coat worn casually it shows the cocoon shape better. Burgundy purse by Jigsaw (available in several colours)
