From hot pink 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?
Yep, it’s officially freezing and all we can think about is wearing as many layers as possible. If you think buying your winter coat should have been done way back in autumn, think again. There’s so many gorgeous styles dropping in to the ‘new in’ sections online, here to make stepping outside that little bit easier. We’re here to bring you colour-pop coats of pure happiness that’ll brighten up even the dullest of wintery days. From Topshop’s orange trench you’ll end up wearing through all seasons, to Tibi’s faux fur belted beauty in this season’s key colour; green. These are the ones we’re rating.
So, what’s the key to pulling colourful coats off? Go for sleek, timeless long-line coat styles, faux fur or luxe offerings like leather 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 experiment and clash with contrasting hues and prints.
Either way, look to our edit of the 12 colourful coats that’ll brighten up the cold months ahead.
