In this little blog series, we’re going to take an Autumn Winter trend, and show you how to wear it – three ways. This week, the pink coat.
Being on trend is all very well, but getting more wear out of your on-trend piece is better. Its all about being clever with the pieces you buy, and seeing how they can be adapted for various occasions. This week, the pink coat – for walking the dog, date night and a winter christening.
This is how we would style this lovely dusky pink coat from Red Herring @ Debenhams (£70) for those three occasions. If you buy one pink item this Autumn winter make it a pink coat. The pink coat is THE winter coat to be seen in this year. Debenhams have quite a few on offer; this one, one from John Rocha, one from Betty Jackson Black and a bold pink one from Jonathan Saunders Edition, if you prefer something brighter.
1. A Winter Christening
A Winter christening doesn’t mean you have to wrap up in dark colours, not when the pink coat is an option this season! Team it with a lovely floral dress, pink accessories in different shades of pink, and brighten up the baby’s big day!

2. Date Night
Contrast the soft tones of the pink coat with an on-trend berry shade – this striped jersey dress will make a statement on date night! Mix it up with dalmation print shoes, and a clashing gold beaded bag, for a fun ensemble.
3. Walking The Dog
Don’t be wearing the pink coat walking the dog if you are going striding through the fields. But, if your dog is of the smaller variety, no harm in dressing up to take Fido out for a stroll now, is there?!
