Soft pastels are traditionally thought of as spring and summer colors, but this season designers are brightening up these dark (and really cold) winter days with the light, dreamy hues—especially pink! And, yes, I’m still obsessing over that wooly, voluminous Carven number. Plus, a look around the red carpet shows a few more inventive ways to wear the cheerful, flirty color and maybe convince you to add a pink coat to your winter wardrobe.
Embellishment It: I cannot stop thinking about the Prada spring 2014 coat that French actress Lea Seydoux wore. It’s just mesmerizing in the detail. The chunky crystal embellishments counterbalance the flirtiness of the dusty rose swing silhouette with an almost-decadent touch.
Go Plush: Danica’s already really into the teddy-bear coat. So how about the comfy, downy texture in a soft pink, like Hannah Bronman’s champagne-hued slouchy style?
The Non-Pastel Pink: So a baby-blanket pink just isn’t your thing—that’s OK. Try rocking a bold, eye-catching fuchsia, like Natalie Portman. I bought vintage coat in the same electrifying hue last winter, and I still get compliments every time I wear it!
Which pink coat do you like best? Will you try one this winter?
