As New York Fashion Week comes to an end tomorrow and London Fashion Week starts on Friday. I thought I would break up the fashion week designer round up to do a post on a piece of clothing that I love and always go back to when I feel my wardrobe is looking a little to drab and black (for some reason during fashion week I wear a lot of black), out comes my red coat. Military style and bought two years ago in a sale at River Island, it has indeed been a must have item during the cold,grey winter months.
I feel that every woman needs to poses a red coat or cape at some point in their life as it is one of those items that immediately lifts an outfit and of course makes a statement without trying to hard. Investing in a coat is a must, with the ladies below showing how well red can work for different occasions and creating different stylish looks. One piece of advice, if in doubt stick to pairing it up with black and try not to mix with other shades of red.. for some reason it has and will never work.
Best places to try for a red coat Topshop, Absolute Vintage down Brick Lane in London, Spitalfields Market has a large amount of stores selling beautiful coats.. it is about just keeping your eyes open for that perfect one for you!
