MMM {weekend} Wear a bright red coat

This weekend is supposedly the sun’s final hurrah for the year, with high temperatures and sunny days.

But the rest of the week has been hideous hasn’t it? I’ve alternated between raincoat and a full-on winter number.

On a grey London day, what better than a bright coat to cheer you up?

This one from Marks & Spencer is such a brilliant colour – a kind of orangey/red, with a slight boucle texture that adds a bit of interest. Even if you have nothing interesting to say, feel full of a cold or are in a terrible mood, throwing on a bright coat like this is guaranteed to cheer you up. And that’s an actual fashion fact (a fasht?)

I actually snapped up my coat a month ago and isn’t available online anymore (sorry), but the one I have linked to above is very similar.

Plus, if you haven’t checked out the coats from M&S this season (where have you been?), you need to – I also love this one, this one and this one.

Here are some other red/orange coats available now. I love the smart double breasted one from Zara – it would look brilliant over a navy trouser suit for the office or teamed with a simple crew neck and boyfriend jeans at the weekend.

Have a lovely sun-filled weekend everyone  (and perhaps order the coats now for next week’s return of Autumn!)

    I love that orangey red colour, like Mac LadyDanger lipstick!

      Exactly! It feels really modern doesn’t it?

    Loving this look – the pop of orangey red is so bright and perfect for beating any seasonal blues! I’ve got a new M&S camel coat that I’m waiting to bust out, this mild weather has been lovely but I’m ready the moment it turns chilly again!

      You should see my coat collection this season Laura – and I haven’t really worn any of them yet! Hope you can rock that camel soon!
