Pink overcoats. Unless you’ve been living under a stone, you’ll know that it’s a must-have this winter. No need to be a fashion victim, but this one has me feeling beautifully fresh and new, it’s not like we are downgrading to a pair of orthopedic shoes. Me circa 2010 would already own four versions of ‘The Pink Coat’ but I’ve been patiently waiting for right one. So who knew I would get my fix at... M&S. My favorite place for food, but clothes - not so much. It wasn’t until I started seeing the much upgraded collection pop up in editorials, that I started paying notice to the brands makeover. Hell, Vogue even formulated this all as a ‘national importance.’ So introducing the sold-out, must-have, lush-list coat, also simply know as ‘The Pink Coat.’ More or less, the piece that seems to be pulling M&S right now. Apart from the dusty pink pictured, the coat comes in darker, blush pink and to different hues of blue. Although the style is oversized, I went three sizes up for the right look. Um, would it be too embarrassing to say after all this that I really need it in the other colors too? So much for growing wiser with age.
PS. Word is M&S is restocking the coats this week! So keep your eye on the site.
Big lapels, cosy but sharp, with an oversized, straight fit is essential for the look. Other favorites include:
