Bright coloured coats for autumnn

Bright coloured coats for autumn

As we move into a new fashion season our thoughts turn to coats. Buying a new coat can be a daunting prospect. In my opinion, your coat forms the centerpiece of a well-curated wardrobe. Choose to invest in a good quality coat that will last for years.  Perhaps be bolder and go for one of the on-trend coats at a more modest price.

The coat I am wearing above I bought last year from Mango still available (USA link). I chose it because it was a good price and in “the colour of the season”. You can see how I wore it last year here. It can definitely do another season as it is in good condition and I am still loving pink.

This season I have decided to style it with my burgundy sleeveless waistcoat from Zara. I searched everywhere to find something similar but to no avail. Sleeveless waistcoats don’t seem to be popular this year. I am going to continue to wear mine as I find them warm and practical.

My pink Mango coat.(USA link) . Good value. I am still loving it.

Pink winter coat

I love the leaves at this time of year. Those stunning rich autumnal hues.

silver boots

My gorgeous leather boots are by Vionicshoes (US link). A brand I have recently been introduced to and I am very glad I have as they are soooooo.. comfortable.They use special technology which aligns and supports your feet. You will be seeing these boots in future posts as I am having difficulty taking them off.

If you prefer a deeper pink you might like this one by Boden (UK link)

Red is definitely the colour of the season this year. This is a lovely classic cut at House of Fraser

Red winter coat

If you prefer more rust tones this is a lovely colour at Nordstrom

Finally another great red coat at Nordstrom. I have a similar one by Nichole Farhi which I have had for many years and it cheers me up ever time I wear it.

I have chosen some lovely bright colours. I always feel that if I put on a coloured coat during the dull winter months it cheers me up. If you prefer more classic colours check out my shop where I have included some beautiful camels, grays, greens and leopard.

Disclosure: The vionic boots were gifted to me. They are so comfortable that I will be buying from the brand in future.

    You should wear pink all the time ! You look so pretty in pink with your gray hair.

    Josephine, I do like your pink coat. But I’m craaazy for that burgundy sleeveless waistcoat you’re wearing. That’s such a versatile piece. It’s exactly the right amount of “spice” for 2017.

      Hi Ann
      Thanks for your comment. The waistcoat is from Zara a few years ago. Sadly I cant seem to find anything similar this year.

    Are those silver booties you’re wearing? I’m seeing them pop up this fall and nice to see them styled in ‘real life’. And good to hear they’re comfy as well as cute. Looking forward to seeing them in future posts. I’ll be checking back…

    Those boots are GORGEOUS! I can probably get one more year of wear out of my charcoal grey wool-blend coat, but if I find a red one that I like at a reasonable price, I’ll be buying it.
