Rebel is wearing: Orange jumper from JCrew. Penny Loafer from Allen Edmonds. Jeans from Gap. Statement necklace bought in Cape Town
On our recent trip to Berlin, Rebel and I visited my favourite Italian shop, Max & Co, to look for trendy and colourful winter coats. It’s always been difficult to buy winter coats in other colours than bland black, grey and beige. This year, the choice of winter coats in bold hues has been a joy!
In Berlin, we discovered a beautiful coloured and soft Mohair winter coat. The colour, a mid, royal blue is a beautiful example of how the right colour really can make your complexion glow. Against Rebel’s dark hair and the bright orange jumper, this coat was a breath of fresh air. The classic, timeless cut paired with the flattering colour is a win!
Who do you think wore it better? Rebel with her pop coloured JCrew jumper, statement necklace and penny loafers or Romantique, paired with Jeans, Ray Bans and the obligatory Ballerinas?
My favourite piece of clothing has always been the dress – up until autumn 2013 that is. After having scanned this seasons coats, I declare the coat as the quintessence of my wardrobe! After all, the coat is the fashion icon par excellence!
From classic duffle coats in chic egg shape to feminine dress coats – there is a shape for everyone. But this is not all: This year, forget about depressing winter colours like black, forest green or deep plum – this years winter coats come in bright colours – mustard yellow, poppy red, neon orange, royal blue and powder pink. This season is about surviving the dark, long winter months in vibrant hues. What colour will you be rocking this year?
