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?
