NEW TO MY WARDROBE

The Pink Coat

I'm just going to start this one off by pointing out that pink is far from my favourite colour to wear - give me a pink Papermate pen and i'll be your bestie forever - but wearable? Not on me. The pink coat trend was one of those that I just knew would never look good on me - but I still wanted to try it out. I couldn't justify spending a bomb on the beauties that Topshop realised this year, but when I saw the blazer/coat hybrid above in H&M for just over £30, it was a bit of a no brainer. I also picked up these shoes at the same time (still not sure about them), it will be a miracle if you can find them on the website as I did pick them up a month back (note: H&M sort out ya wesbite yeh?).

So how do I feel about said pink coat? To be honest, I don't think it works in Brighton, I don't 100% love it - I'd probably go for some leather boots to toughen it up next time - but I think brighter coats work better when I'm in London. Brighton style is so casual that wearing anything other than vans and jeans is classified as smart. 

What do you think? Do you have a pink coat and if so - how do you style it?

  8. I don't own a pink coat (YET) I stress yet, because I'm all over one I spotted at the ASOS AW14 press day and I'm sure that'll be landing straight in my basket when it comes in later this year.

    I think you 100% pull off pink Suzie! The flatforms totally rough-up the look. I think I'd team it with some shredded boyfriends, a white tee, and some ugly shoes/flatforms to tone down the uber girly vibe that pink can sometimes give.

  10. That looks so good on you, it really suits you even though pink is not your favourite. The shoes definitely balance out the girly-ness that the pink could give off.

  13. As if this coat was under £40! It's gorgeous. I have a pale pink coat, I don't think I could get away with one so bright but it looks lovely on you!

  16. I really love the coat but I personally would pick something a little less bright and more pastel, but that's because I'm a scaredy cat!

  19. I have the exact same coat! I found it in the H&M sale here in Sweden a couple of weeks ago for approx. 20 pound and I got so many compliments on it! I can't stop wearing it :)

  21. I think the colour really suits you! You've styled it really nicely by leaving everything else monochrome, putting your hair up and letting the jacket talk for itself. Definitely a good London piece :)

  31. I never ventured into the whole pink coat trend because I didn't think it would suit me at all. I love this one though, I may have a look for it in store. I get what you mean about it being suitable for a place though, in my hometown absolutely no one would dress the way that I would like to without sticking out like a sore thumb!

  36. The coat looks lovely on you! I'm the same, I prefer neutral colours for coats but I've caught myself liking the pink coat trend too lately! But I don't think I'll ever buy one myself

  37. Hope that this was a bit of a nod towards the anniversary of Mean Girls, 'On Wednesdays we wear pink' - haha.
    I honestly would have no idea where to start styling this - I'm a bit of an all black errythang gurl! :P

  38. I have a pink coat but it's a soft hue- being blonde and fair it just suits me more. I wear mine with grey or white skinny jeans. The grey ones are from new look and have a lilac/ grey tone. My ripped jeans with a t shirt or knit also looks nice.
    It really suits you and the shoes are great. H and m are amazing and I totally agree about their website- it's so old fashioned and difficult to browse.

  46. A whole hearted yes to the coat and the shoes! I love how the bright pink hue of the coat is balanced out with the edginess of the shoes. I've been looking for a pair of heeled sandals/flatform-ish shoes for a while now and those are gorgeous.
