Street Style - Red Coats

This post was initially going to be about the fact that Jessie J came to my school yesterday, and me ranting about the fact that it was the one day that I didn't go in to Brit, thus missing her visit. GAH. My life is a sham.

Anyway, waiting for my train home today, I couldn't help but notice the fact that there were a HELL OF A LOT of people wearing red coats. So, obviously, I followed around the strangers wearing these coats to take their photos.

If we ignore the fact that my collage is incredibly blurry as I composed it on my phone on the train, and the photos were of bad quality anyway as I took them on Snapchat to make sure that my flash didn't accidently go off (imagine that), I don't think that I did a bad job of spying on stranger's fashion senses.

Disclaimer - I've tried to blur out the faces.

Red coats were EVERYWHERE. 

Anyway, what's going on? Bear it in mind that I took all of these on the SAME DAY within a THIRTY MINUTE SLOT, red coats might actually be becoming the next big THING. 

I've personally never owned a red coat, and hopefully never will. To be honest, I think they look a bit tacky if dyed onto wool or cotton, but I guess they can be a fashion statement if used right.

So, what do you think? Don't you think it's weird that they're suddenly here, with no notice or warning?

  1. OMG I LOVE THAT YOU JUST WENT AROUND TAKING PICTURES OF RANDOM PEOPLE WEARING RED COATS! You make me laugh :)
    I totally agree with you, some red coats look trashy, but if you have the right style, I think you could totally pull it off.
    I never really noticed so many red coats over on this side of the ocean, but I'm going to be keeping a lookout now!

    1. I'm really surprised that nobody noticed! I totally agree.

  2. I'd prefer a black one to red, red ones can look good on people who know how to carry the colour, certainly not on me!

    1. It really is a pretty bold colour to try to pull off.
