8 colourful coats that are guaranteed to brighten up your autumn/winter wardrobe

Posted by

From fiery red outerwear to sunshine yellow coats, it’s time to add a splash of colour to your new cover-up. Who said winter has to be dull?

As the days get shorter and autumn well and truly kicks in, layering up just to step foot outside in the mornings can seem like a chore. However, it’ll be a chore no longer thanks to these bright coats of pure happiness. From Mango’s sunshine yellow coat to the Hobbs and Bimba Y lola pastel blue styles, not to mention the River Island purple offering which resembles ‘The Purple One’ from Quality Street (anything that reminds us of chocolate is a win), there really is a colour block style for everyone.

So, what’s the key to pulling these off? Go for sleek, timeless long-line coat styles that’ll look effortless with any outfit. Believe us when they say, they’ll really go the distance in your wardrobe, too. Let them do all the talking by sticking to neutral tones underneath, or why not experiment and clash with contrasting hues and prints? Either way, look to our coat edit of colourful outwear to brighten up the cold months ahead.
