I’ve (very) recently realised that pinks, reds, and oranges are the colours I should be wearing. My wardrobe used to be jam-packed with various tones that I just didn’t wear as they weren’t for me. I’m not the type of gal that could ever have a traditional capsule wardrobe – hello biker jackets in every colour – but I feel like I have a much more wearable wardrobe now that I’m focussing more on my colour palette. Therefore, in theory, this pink wool coat should slot nicely into my existing outfit choices.
For now, I’m keeping it safe with an all-black outfit, it’s far from boring, though. Like in my ‘How To Wear Leopard Print Tights’, I’ve added different textured items in the same colour to make the outfit interesting. A simple, well-fitting black top is the base of this outfit. It’s flattering, comfortable and goes with just about anything. Next up is something I’ve found myself reaching for a lot over the past few weeks – my black faux leather skirt. I love the zip up the centre of the skirt and the perfect A-line shape. Sometimes I find that skirts in this style don’t fit me well as I have a small waist but curvy hips, this is perfect though! A pair of tights are a must in this weather, I prefer a slighter sheerer pair than totally opaque as I find them more flattering. Nine times out of ten I’ll have a pair of boots on my feet at this time of year. To add another texture to my outfit I went for my new patent-style boots from F&F at Tesco. I love the 60’s vibe they have. I could throw any brightly coloured coat or jacket over this outfit and it would look fab.
It’s the perfect coat to see me through the next few months, and I’ve already planned my next outfit with this pink wool coat – it involves a gorgeous beige dress from MissGuided. As the (slightly) warmer Spring months arrive, I’m going to experiment with wearing other colours with my pink coat- perhaps a soft green, minty blue or a paler shade of pink. I’ve actually seen a top in New Look today that *might* just work. For now, though, I’ll be sticking to neutrals under my new favourite coat.
I’ve included an edit of my favourite brightly colored coats below if fuschia ain’t your thing.
