When the kind folk over at Bonmarche got in touch and asked if I could like to treat my Mam to a piece of clothing from their Autumn / Winter line I jumped at the chance.
My Mam is a loyal customer of Bonmarche’s for work wear basics and staples at an affordable price. You may remember she reviewed a coat back in 2013 HERE
Drawn to red coats, she picked the vibrant Ann Harvey contrast lined coat (£40)*
With the look of a thick winter coat, the fabric is surprisingly thin and lightweight which means it is perfect to layer over a thick jumper in the colder weather or let it see you through to the spring with just a t-shirt underneath. The round scooped collar is a strong feature with the style of the coat as it allows you to wear it with a polo neck and have the coat frame it. Scarves sit well with the round neck cut too meaning you can still stay warm with a scoop neck top.
A high quality, key piece for your wardrobe, you can wear it smart or casual and it will see you from Autumn through to Spring. A classic red will never date in your capsule wardrobe.
