Now i know to most people out there the pink long line coat is something that only the older generation with a trolley on the bus with UGG boots would wear right? NO!
There has been dozes of hype around certain trends featured at LFW for SS13 collections by various designers, including the red structure, capes, turtle necks and even leopard print! One of these featured trends was the romantic soft dusty pink colour. Designers such as Mulberry included this colour through their cohesiveness in the way of trousers and also tops. However the big show stopper of the season in this new beautiful colour was the Coat! Ranging from fluffy, sparkly to structured smart designs, there were garments to fit every woman's lifestyle or style. It is a perfect combination of class and retro-ness; when i think of this colour i mostly associate it with that fashion of the 90's... baby pink mini dresses, over sized corduroy jackets and trousers, and even the good old scrunchie. Bringing this colour back gives elegance a new meaning, adding a slight pinch of vintage to the mix to create the perfect new must have product.
Street Style photographed from topshop.com shows this beauty wearing By Melanie Birger's version of the treasured pink coat. Below on the catwalk.
Therefore it goes without saying that this his is a 'must have' in every fashion forward woman's wardrobe for SS13, including mine! I've been scouring the internet to find the best high street versions of the designer labels and here's a few of my favourites.
*Zara.com* Masculine Studio Overcoat £179.00
This Take on the trend by Zara has more of a hard edge combining a softer pink with a masculine clean cut through the design. The combination of the two i think is perfect. I would probably style this with my ripped black denim and heavy grunge platforms from Topshop to give it that edge. Maybe even my fedora?
*Asos.com* Vintage style Cocoon Coat £110.00
Now i must admit im slightly obsessed with this one by Asos, they've hit the nail on the head with the colour and design in my opinion. Made from wool and being an over sized coat, it gives a super cute vintage feel to it, which i obviously love. Anything thrift and pretty and I am there. I brought a similar style last year in a camel colour and its great to just throw on, extremely warm and cosy too. The styling of this with the black boots is right up my street, i would maybe put a black or cream shift dress underneath this though.

Now ladies and gentlemen, here we have the Marks and Spencer's version. This little beautiful specimin of outwear sold out before it even hit the shelves nationwide! But why you ask? This is a steal and only £85.00 and matches everything wanted and needed for this trend. I myself also want this!!! But i can not get my hands on it, still. I'm hoping that is becomes available soon. Because M&S, we are waaaaitingggg.
