Colour Burst in Winter

Style Theory: To brighten up long winter days add a pop of colour to your outfits with a bright jacket or coat. Wear now with all black and in the summer throw over white jeans and T Shirts for cool look on long summer evenings.

Sweater: Cos similar here
Jeans: Oasis similar here
Coat: M&S similar here
Trainers: Adidas Superstar
Bag: Aurora Living
My pink coat is my 'go to' for a dash of colour, it adds a splash of much needed brightness to all my outfits and can be worn with a huge array of colours, in the winter with black, navy and berry, in the Summer I wear it with denim/chambray shirts and pale denim jeans...For extra warmth in the colder months wear with a biker jacket underneath and an oversize scarf...Asos have a fab range of oversize scarves you can wear with now with block bright coats..

Here are a few of the best colour pop jackets and lightweight coats on the high street now..
Zara Wrap Oversize Coat £69.99
Adore this coat, would look fab with berry colours, navy and black..can be styled like this..

 Or perhaps red is your colour..
Zara Round Neck Handmade Coat £109
Mix up your red colour this Spring a berry coloured sweater for a stunning and unexpected colour clash

Or add a colour pop to an everyday outfit...

So if green is your colour this one is a gorgeous choice...
Marks and Spencer Nehru Collar Textured Car Coat with Wool £99
This coat looks much better on, wear with a navy sweater, jeans and white trainers, add a orange cross body bag for an extra winter pop of colour. In the summer, wear with a cream, fine sweater, skinny light blue jeans and white trainers or tan sandals.

Or style like this...swap the white courts for tan strappy sandals for a comfortable option..

Finally you could try a pink coat, a great colour to mix and match with so many outfits and colours...reds, camel, navy, berry, black..the list is endless..
Asos Oversized Pea Coat £90
Here are a few ideas of how to style your pink coat, love it with the grey marl t-shirt and the distressed jeans..

I hope this blog post added a little colour to your grey winter day. Have you got a bright coat, do you find it cheers you up in the winter, how do you style it?

As always I would love to hear you thoughts and comments, until next time Frances xxx


  1. Great post. A good reminder of the power of a pop of colour. I love your trainers but obviously as i've now decided i want them/ won't look too old wearing them they seemed to have sold out everywhere! x

  2. Oh the green coat is amazing. I am SO boring with my coat choices. This is one area I need to improve on - massively

  3. I have been eyeing up a red duster style coat for a while....maybe now is the time to take the plunge to get me in the mood for Spring. I've always admired your pink coat, looks amazing on you xx

  4. I eye up that green coat every time I'm in M&S. Very similar to the Zara one that Kat had last year. But I think I'd look just a bit to twee & patriotic in that particular shade of green ,,, usually just reserved for Paddy's Day over here!!

  5. Oh I LOVE the mustard coat from Zara, gorgeous! :) x

  6. That pink biker jacket...swoon. You just be ready for another colour Fran????

  7. I love that pin with the lady in the green coat and the white shoes - it's so crisp - I love it. I think spring is coming soon ... I might break out some colour soon.

  8. You wear your pink and blue coats do well, Frances. I saw a woman in an orange one today and she looked fabulous. Lynne xx

  9. I'm dull when it comes to colour & I really need to play more! I've just ordered a burgundy duster style coat & that's as good as it gets! x
