Bonfire of the Vanity

The bright blue coat is back. Every now and then this coat makes a sly return and I always end up wearing it somewhere. At first glance, there wouldn’t be many items in my wardrobe I could pair this jacket with, but there are actually many different styles that this coat blends well with. Today I have chosen a dress that will harmonise with the coat rather than clash. Sometimes I can wear pieces that will totally contrast with the bright blue colour and create a colour block effect but I’ve found that to be more of a summer trend. However, because the weather is a litter cheerier today, I chose a dress that does include colours such as pink and orange in to brighten up my outfit. On the colour chart, orange is the contrasting colour to blue, so I have a hint of a subtle colour block in this look. Today’s dress is another favourite of mine that I couldn’t abandon last season. The colours do remind me of summer, but I have somehow managed to convince myself that it’s suitable for autumn.
