Cotton candy coats

Has anyone else felt conflicted by the color pink? As a young girl, I couldn’t get enough of it, as a teenager I rebelled against it and in my twenties I’m finally re-discovering my appreciation for the feminine shade. And it seems as though fall has finally embraced pink too, as the cotton candy coat is this season’s breakout star. Soft pink is a breath of fresh air in a season that tends to recycle trends year after year (leather, boots, oxblood, animal print, etc.)

Beautifully combining femininity and utility, a pink coat is a great investment piece to carry you through fall, winter and spring. The subtle shade pairs elegantly with traditional fall hues and patterns like burgundy, eggplant, leopard and leather, making pink feel right at home this season (and making me wonder why I never thought to wear it before!)
