The Red Coat

redcoat

The Red Coat – Even though I don’t wear it as much as I want to, red is a colour that I’ve grown to love over the years and my first bright coat was in fact this one you’re seeing pictured!

It’s from River Island and I bought it about 3 maybe 4 years ago however it still looks brand new! I decided to wear this a couple of weeks ago when it was absolutely freezing so even though there’s a few smiles here and there I really just wanted a hot coffee!

Teaming it up with my H&M Top, H&M Shaping Denim Jeans, Black Ballet flats and of course a colour co-ordinating statement necklace! 🙂

Even if you’re wearing a simple outfit or maybe an all black outfit – a colourful coat like the red coat can make such a difference to your whole look and even mood 🙂

Το κοκκινο παλτο – Παρολο που δεν το φοραω οσο τακτικα θα ηθελα, το κοκκινο ειναι ενα χρωμα που αγαπησα με τα χρονια και αυτο που βλεπετε ειναι το πρωτο μου παλτο σε εντονο χρωμα.

Αποφασισα να το φορεσω πριν μερικες εβδομαδες που ειχε πολυ κρυο γιατι ειναι πολυ ζεστο.

Το συνδιασα με H&M μπλουζα, H&M τζιν παντελονι, παπουτσια χαμηλα και φυσικα με αναλογο κολιε.

Ακομα και αν ολο το ντυσιμο ειναι μαυρο ενα κοκκινο παλτο η οποιοδηποτε αλλο εντονο χρωμα κανει μεγαλη διαφορα και στο ντυσιμο αλλα και στη διαθεση.

Below you can see the top I’m wearing in much more detail – it’s from the H&M SS15 collection and I’m loving the slit detail on the bottom of either side….super-cute!

Στην παρακατω φωτογραφια βλεπετε την μπλουζα σε λεπτομερεια ειναι H&M SS15 συλογη και μου αρεσει πολυ το κοψιμο στις δυο ακρες που δινει μια ιδιαιτερη κομψοτητα.

Οπως πολλες φορες λεω το απλο ειναι και κομψο!!

    I love red coats! Though I do not own one, red coats remind me so much of the red riding hood look, haha – I am tempted to get a cardigan alternative as I as much as I love red, as a color, I realize I don’t have any outerwear in the shade – thank you for the inspiration love =D xo

    You did a great job styling the coat! I also really like red, but I don’t wear it very often – although I do have a pair of burgundy boots I wore a lot during fall!

    There’s a giveaway on my blog right now, make sure you check it out!

    I love coats that wear well, so that like this one by River Island, you can wear it a few years down the line and still look as though you’re wearing new season! This deep red colour is lovely on you by the way Layla 🙂

    Hi Layla! I just love red coats. I own one red coat, while all my other coats are black. Haha! It takes a lot for me to purchase a brightly colored coat- what if I don’t like it? But a girl can always feel confident in red 🙂 You look great, and the coat fits you perfectly!

    Love this coat. I have a similar one from New Look – also in bright red – and I love it.
    Unfortunately with the weather being so rainy I wasnt able to wear it too much in the winter.. But now seems to be the perfect weather for it 🙂

    Lovely post.

    I adore this red coat. I love the shape and the way it accents your entire outfit. I also love your T-shirt and blue jeans. This is truly a brilliant choice and it looks so good outside.
