When it comes to winter coats, dark colours tend to dominate. Why is this? We’ve never really understood why people seem to want to match gloomy weather to gloomy colours, but this season we’re pleased to see a number of exceptions to the general rule, with winter coats cropping up in just about every colour imaginable. Here are a few of our current favourites:
ASOS pink Dolly coat, £85
Pink coats are a big trend this winter, so there’s no shortage of them for those of you who love them. This ASOS Dolly coat is a much brighter pink than some of the winter coats we’ve seen, but the classic shape and (comparatively) affordable price tag makes it our favourite so far.
For those who prefer their brights a little less, well, bright, this baby blue coat from Miss Selfridge is an easy-to-wear option, with a bit of a 60s-inspired feel, thanks to the faux-fur collar and simple, swing shape.
BHS red winter coat, £50
BHS isn’t a store we tend to check out very often, but at just £50, this bright red single-breasted coat not only stands out amongst a sea of blacks and greys, it also stands out price-wise, too.
Fever Topsham Coat, £119.99
Fever are selling this coat in a range of different colours, but this yellow version is the one that grabbed our attention, for obvious reasons. In addition to the sunshine colour, this also has a pretty corsage detail at the neck, to help dress it up a little.
Louche Sydney coat, £130
Louche is another brand which can always be relied on to produce great winter coats, often in brighter-than-average colours. They describe their ‘Sydney’ coat as “blue”: it looks purplish to us, but whatever you want to call it, it’s a gorgeous colour – and a gorgeous coat, too.
