How to Style – Colour in Winter

Wearing black is all well and good but when the weather is cold and grey outside, sometimes you just need to wear some colour. Investing in cheery outerwear is the easiest way to inject some vibrancy into your winter wardrobe. Let a colourful coat make a statement when paired with neutrals, or how about dressing head to toe in colour? Or what about a mix of the two? Dressing in colour is fun and we have three suggestions for you.


Baby Blue




Coat: Asos

Shirt: Miu Miu

Trousers: Trenery

Shoes: Kenzo

Bag: Vintage Dior

Why it works: Take tonal dressing to the extreme with a look centers all around one colour. When working with only one colour you can play with tone,  print and texture. Fun!


Pretty in Pink




Coat: Topshop

Top: Country Road

Skirt: Vintage Comme des Garcons

Boots: Kenzo

Why it Works: If head to toe colour aint your thang, anchor a strong colour with a neutral like black or navy. Experiment with shades of the same colour and tonal print to mix things up.

Colour Combo


Coat: Paul Smith

Top: Vintage Chanel

Shirt: Carven

Shoes: MR by Man Repeller

Why it Works: This look works well for the colour shy. Keep things simple underneath and let your coat do the colour talking. If you are feeling daring pick up a colour from your coat and match it to your shoes.
