After a good few years of minimalism, colour, print and all things maximalist are back on the agenda. But, after so long styling head-to-toe neutrals, even the most confident dressers could be forgiven for panicking about the new, bolder colour palette breaking through.
Normally wedded to coats in far less attention-grabbing hues, I’ll be indulging in the new colour commandments via a coloured coat in a sorbet shade of violet this January. Simply style with more minimal pieces (and breathe a sigh of relief as you slip on your favourite neutral knit and low-key trousers) and voila. Colour to uplift the spirits without totally altering your personal style. The shape of this single-breasted coat is also a great option for the days of winter layering that are still ahead of us – try a size up to ensure there’s room for your snuggliest winter knits.
