Cherry Red Coat: The Colour of The Season (#Passion4Fashion Linkup)


Red. It is of course the colour of the season, but red for me is a lifelong love rather than a season.
I have had a red coat in my armoury for many years and I honestly couldn't be without one.
This year i have upgraded to -this beauty- and ohhh my days, I couldn't be happier or snugglier (ha, that's a word isn't it?), it will fast become my go to coat i'm sure.
This little number will quickly become your BFF as the colour lends instant pep to your outfit and colour to your face. Cherry red should perhaps be called cheery red, because it really is a cheery colour.
This with any number of neutrals, stripes or leopard print will be an absolute winner.
Easy dressing at its finest i think.
And as for the rest of the outfit? Well i adore all of it. Simple weekend style is really me at my happiness. Throw in some stripes on a casual shirt and the most insanely comfy jeans (more on that in a mo) and i am most certainly one happy gal.
So -these jeans- are a new cut and fabric. With new jean technology these jeans stretch up and down but not side to side for the perfect lift and contour. And honestly.. they really do feel extremely good on. I'm well very fussy with jeans, which is why i stick to the same 4 pairs over and over again, but these have quickly become a new favourite. I love how they bend and stretch with me and don't leave me feeling constricted (which I hate with jeans), i'm not very good with stiff fabrics as ultimately i like to feel comfy at all times, and these do the trick perfectly. I also love showing off a bit of ankle and the crop showcases shoes, or sock boots in this case, really well.

Lastly, because blatantly I have a lot to say about this outfit, the hat. Oh how i love a baker boy hat. I have wanted one like this ever since Kiera Knightly presented banoffe pie to Andrew Lincoln in the film Love Actually. It's just such a great casual hat. and keeps the rain off my hair perfectly.. practical and fun, whats not to love about that eh?!





















So red coats are in..do you own the coat of the season?

  2. I love your bright red coat - so nice with your jeans and perfect for some colour in winter! :) I really need to add more colourful coats to my wardrobe for the colder weather (although saying that the latest post I linked up was with my bold cobalt blue leather jacket so maybe I have enough brights already haha!)

    Thank you for the link up!

    Hope you are having a lovely week :)

  5. I don't have a coat as I'm living on the tropical island. But once I'm back in Europe, I definitely need red one. It brights your day for sure. Lovely look.

  13. That's definitely my kind of outfit! I love red and this coat is gorgeous. I'm never without my trusty baker boy style hat in the colder months, it's brilliant for keeping my hair and face dry in the crappy Manchester weather. I also have that navy bag...and...I just bought some sock boots in red. I'm not deliberately copying you, honestly ;-) I love the stretchy material that's so forgiving on my bunions! You look stunning Rachel, I'm popping over to the Next website for a browse. Hope you have a great weekend!
