Painting the Town Red with Debenhams


Year after year, we’re all looking for that one or maybe two or three coat(s) to see us through the autumn/winter season and I happen to be no different in that respect. This a/w season, I have been seeking a new coat that will help to revive my a/w wardrobe. 

I often tend to shy away from seasonal trends when making a coat selection but this season I have found myself opting for an in trend seasonal piece in the form of a bold red coat that I picked up from Debenhams. As you may or may not know, the check print, along with the military inspired coats and the colour red are very much on trend for AW17.  


1. MILITARY

The military inspired coats have always been a firm favourite of mine. For me it is one of those classic styles that adds a touch of sophistication to any outfit. There's something about the gold button detailing along with the oversized lapels found in some designs that elevates any look and adds a sophisticated touch. The military inspired coat is one of those pieces that can be worn during the working week and can equally compliment your weekend attire.



2. CHECK

The check print is having its comeback this season and it is coming back in all forms but I would say that it is making a bigger impact in the outerwear department. I cannot tell you the amount of bloggers that I have sported rocking a check print blazer or coat. It is definitely a popular choice among blogger's right now. 



3. RED

I opted for a red coat simply because I already have a couple of military inspired coats in my closet along with a number of check print pieces. The one thing I feel is lacking from my a/w wardrobe is some vibrant bold shades as I often find myself gearing to darker shades like navy during the autumn/winter months.

It may have something to do with the fact that I've been seeing a lot of Red on the blogs, magazines and in the shops which has somehow led to me wanting to grab a collection of red pieces. I thought I would kick start things off by first grabbing a red statement coat and  fortunately for me Debenhams had a varied range of red coats for me to choose from to satisfy my red cravings.

I went for the Hobbs Red Tilda coat because for me it encapsulates my style choice whilst also adding a pop of colour to my look that can see me from day to night. There are also a few other red coats that caught my eye:

I've gone ahead and put together a few style looks below to illustrate the numerous in which I will be wearing my new red coat over the coming months.
