Looks We Love | Colourful pastel coats

We know those of you in the Northern Hemisphere are probably getting ready to hang up your winter coats by now (we know we are), but as the weather has yet to catch up with our style sensibilities, we’ll probably have to put up with them for a couple more weeks yet.

As it happens, though, this winter’s coats were more of a pleasure to “put up with” than usual. We loved the trend for pastel outerwear in all the colours of the rainbow, and have high hopes that it sticks around until NEXT winter, because after enjoying all of those candy-coloured coats, we’re even more reluctant than usual to go back to the “sensible” blacks and navys that cold weather normally brings.

Of course, one of the best things about pastel coats is that they’ll continue to look good all the way through spring (especially if it’s a chilly one); just swap boots and scarves for sandals and lightweight tops, and your coat will continue to keep you warm, while still looking suitably spring-like.

In celebration of one of our favourite looks of the last season, here’s a quick look back at some of our favourite pastel coloured coats…

    I wish we were ready to hang up our coats in North Texas. Last Saturday it was 77/25 , by Sunday it was 22/-5. I really think I’m going to have to ditch the Black over coat for something in pink.

    I’ve really enjoyed wearing my Marks pale blue coat this winter. It’s been like a ray of sunshine in the gloom and doom of the UK storms. I ordered it sitting in 35 C heat on a beach near Barcelona after reading this blog( http://www.thefashionpolice.net/2013/08/marks-spencer-autumn-winter-2013-preview.html/marksandspencer_98201715919593 ), so a big thank you to The (Original) Fashion Police.
