When Fiorelli sent me my beautiful Jasmine bag to celebrate the launch of their AW13 collection, my thoughts turned to how to work it into my wardrobe. I am drawn to a colour palette of moody navy blues in winter so no doubt the Jasmine will feature alongside some indigo denim and a deep navy crombie jacket when the temperature start to drop.
But Jasmine’s starring role in my wardrobe will see her incorporated this season’s biggest trend story: the pink coat. In a moment that can only be described as a ‘trend premonition’, I impulse purchased a £40 pink wool tailored coat in the autumn/winter sales and have been feeling decidedly smug since the fashion magazines declared it the ‘must-have’ item for the new season. To style my pink coat without looking too prim, I’ll incorporate some washed out and distressed denim into the look – either a skinny fit or boyfriend jean will do the job. A pair of leopard print loafers will inject some pattern – pony hair finishes add a luxurious flourish. The Jasmine bag completes the outfit and is also deep enough to stash a pair of fabulous heels – ideal for the post-work cocktails that become obligatory once party season kicks in!
