The days are getting shorter, there’s a chill in the air, lights are up everywhere – it must be winter already! And of course, with the new season comes new fashions. Getting a winter wardrobe is exciting when you’re looking at all the pretty sweaters and cute wooly tights, but for most of us, the fun stops when we get to outerwear. At this point, it’s easy to just give up and settle for a plain grey coat and black boots.
Don’t worry, you can still brighten up a gloomy winter’s day! Your clothes are hidden underneath your coat, so they don’t have to match. Think of outerwear as a whole different outfit and you can really get creative! Try a chic, unconventional coloured coat.
With this yellow coat, you won’t miss the summer sun! Yellow matches well with a surprising range of colours. This would look great with any dark or neutral coloured bottoms, but you can also pair them with another hot trend: COLOURED PANTS. Bright red or cobalt blue give you a bold primary colour combination, while pastel shades would look cute and feminine. This cut goes well with pants or skirts.
This cobalt blue coat is great for those who want a more conservative winter look. If you are still experimenting, this coat allows you to dip a toe into the ocean of colourful clothes! Any neutral bottoms would look good with this, including lighter shades. Stronger colours like seafoam green or most shades of pink make for a brighter combination. Tights and skinny jeans go particularly well with the loose fit of this coat.
This one is a personal favourite – I have a magenta peacoat myself! Any neutral bottoms will match this colour well, particularly navy, grey, and camel or tan. Warm pastels like yellow look nice too, as well as patterns like houndstooth or gingham in black-and-white. Florals also work with this pretty colour – why wait for spring? Dresses and skirts look sleek and stylish thanks to this coat’s classic tailored cut.
