Pink coats have become somewhat of an autumn/winter staple for me. Now owning 3 of them, I figure I have to start finding more things to wear them with to get the most use that I can out of them. Forget a versatile black, white or denim coat, I have 1 plain pink, 1 printed pink and one textured pink coat to make work with everything. Despite what you may think, a dusty pink coat is actually incredibly versatile – you might just have to be a little more inventive when you are planning an outfit around it (and maybe that there is the secret, planning your outfit around your coat).

It is so easy to pull out a pair of jeans, a white top, one of my pink coats and be done with it, but there are only so many times I can do that without getting bored of my favourite coats. This is where imagination, a bit of trial and error, and some confidence in your own judgement come into play. While I am no stranger to mixing colour and print, one combination that hasn’t crossed my mind until now was khaki and dusty pink. To be honest, the lack of khaki in my closet up until recently was the only reason pairing it with pink hadn’t crossed my mind.

Pared back with neutral coloured accessories, it feels a little ‘Neapolitan ice-cream’, but it is simple, chic and a little daring none-the-less. The subtle pop of colour in an otherwise neutral, earthy toned outfit is refreshing, and so very indicative of my personality.

So, khaki and dusty pink, are you game enough to give it a go?
