7 of the best colourful coats to make dark autumn days brighter
04th Sep 2020
If investing in an autumn coat, why not choose one with colour? Here are seven outwear items that will brighten the darkest of days
With the world facing one of the most dreary winters on record, we need to find joy in the little things.
Though it might seem trivial to think, one of these little things can be an item of clothing. And when it comes to autumn shopping, one of the most important is a coat.
Outerwear is a vital component of a wardrobe fit for the colder season. Weekend walks require one, winter weddings require one, the work commute requires one and sometimes the actual office does too.
So what better way to merge necessity and enjoyment than by investing in a coat that doesn’t hold back on colour?
Bright colours can change a mood. All black and muted tones only add to the general feeling of helplessness in the air. Darker colours can often feed into misery, which is why choosing dazzling hues of pink and blue helps the wearer feel more positive, even if the outlook doesn’t feel the same.
The online stores seem to be following the global mood, with many of the coats on offer sticking to black and beige. But beneath the humdrum, lay some beautiful gems.
Our top picks are the turquoise leather trench coat by REMAIN Birger Christensen and the cerise pink belted coat by Topshop.
So go forth and stay bright, your mood will thank you for it.
