I love a nice red coat, and it seems I’m in good company. Last weekend the Duchess of Cambridge attended a rugby match wearing her lovely LK Bennett. full length red coat, looking both snug and stylish for the outdoor event. This was one outfit you could not blame her for recycling, what could look more warm and festive than a red coat? (Just ask Santa – he’s sure to agree.)
Kate’s red coat look is all over the High Street and internet at the moment, with nearly all the High Street big boys having a red coat in their seasonal collection. And why not? A red coat is a great way to get colour into your wardrobe, with a shade to suit almost every colouring. It looks good with so many different colours, from classic black to cobalt blue and emerald-green, or neutral beige and creams if you prefer. And it never dates, you can buy a red coat now and be sure to still be wearing it in years to come, a perennial fave that you can always turn to. What’s not to love?
