I had been looking for the perfect winter coat for a while. Since we live in a cold climate my winter coat collection is quite extensive but most of the coats I own are neutral colours. This year, I wanted to invest in a new jacket and upon seeing this Max Mara dark pink coat I was absolutely obsessed. But with a $3700 price tag, the coat was way more money than I could justify spending on a single item. I scoured the internet trying to find something similar but had no luck.
Then, I was doing a little shopping during my trip to Arizona, I stumbled upon this Ted Baker coat. The colour was exactly what I was looking for and I knew as soon as I eyed it that it was going to be mine. It’s a statement in it’s own right but it also pairs perfectly with the soft pastel tones my wardrobe is mostly made up of.
This dark pink rose hue is certainly having its moment in fashion. In contrast to the light peachy hues that have been in vogue that past few years it’s a welcome change of pace. Rose pink is an optimistic shade that feels more mature than fuchsia but fresher than burgundy. While it’s still less common to find in stores than infamous millennial pink plenty of retailers are designing pieces in this gorgeous hue. Here are a few of my favourite rose pink fashion pieces currently available online:
