Red Coat

I might have mentioned my hatred of winter before. I'm not a huge fan of winter clothes either. I've been wearing the same Zara coat for the last three years because a) I can't be bothered to buy a new one and b) coats are pricey and I'd rather spend my money on actual clothes. My latest sale bargain has changed all that. It may be because it's bright red. It may be the gold buttons. Or it may be that it was reduced to only £30 but whatever the reason I love this coat:

Coat: Dorothy Perkins, Dress: Topshop

Wearing this coat is making these dull January days just that little bit brighter. It's also keeping me nice and warm because shivering will never be in fashion.

What's your favourite winter coat?

  10. That's gorgeous, I love red! I've bought a couple of new coats this year, my fave probably has to be my more casual parka coat with fur trim from Miss Selfridge in the sale, its just so cosy I love it!

  15. I have a red coat this winter too and I love it! It's so nice to have a bright cheery colour rather than the ever practical black or grey numbers I've had for the past few years.

    Yours looks gorgeous on you - it's a beautiful colour and shape!
