The powder pink coat may be the must-have of the season but let’s face it, it’s not the most practical colour for mum-ing in and you may be hesitant to invest heavily in a coat that turns out to be a one-year-wonder. So say hello to your still-on-trend but versatile and purse-friendly alternative.
Blue biker coat, £25, F&F at Tesco
In fashion terms, it’s still a statement piece and picks up on this season’s grunge trend with its longer length biker cut and rocks another key colour you need in your wardrobe this winter: cobalt blue.
In mama terms, it’s thigh length so it’ll keep you cosy on the school run or pushing the buggy, you can happily throw it in the washing machine whenever necessary and at only £25 it won’t matter if you wear it so much this year you’re so over it come next winter.
Wear it with skinny jeans, biker boots and a printed scarf for day and with leather trousers, heels and a flowy top for date night.
