I've found a good cheapo coat, what colour should I get?

I don't have much money for a coat but thought this one from Asda looked bargainous

I like the pink but I'm really not good at matching colours. Could you lovely MNers help me? I own two pairs of jeans that I pretty much live in, one blue and one black. And I have two pairs of boots, one black and one dark brown.

Would pink go with black jeans? Or brown boots? Or should I just get the grey version?

I love ASDA coats! I bought one (bright blue!) when I was pregnant and when I lost the weight I bought the next year's style (in tan) because I was so impressed.

I think pink would go better than the grey. (But i'm not great at colour matching, I like the grey one personally, but not keen on grey and brown together)

Asda coats are brilliant value :-)

It also comes in red, red might be better, and very glamorous :-)

I like the pink. I have a magenta coat that I bought 4 winters ago and was initially worried about what it would go with. However, the best thing about having a bright coloured coat is that no matter what you are wearing beneath you always look put together and groomed smile.

FayeKinitt Sat 06-Oct-12 21:01:19

Thanks for the replies!

Yes I like the red one too but I've had a couple of red coats in the past and fancied a change!

My hair is mid brown Curious smile

It says 'we love coats' and there's the grey one on left,pink right.

CuriousMama Sat 06-Oct-12 22:05:24

'Ere it is

I would go with the grey and use scarfs etc to add colour. The pink is very nice mind tries not to encourage to get both

FayeKinitt Sun 07-Oct-12 07:26:56

Gah! Don't know why the link is misbehaving now! If you go on the homepage theirs a big advert in the middle with the grey coat on one side and the pink on the other. They are £19 each.

I'd love to have both but I'm trying (and hugely failing grin ) to be a bit more careful with money!

testing testing

CuriousMama Sun 07-Oct-12 13:20:19

Queenie does have a point about grey and scarves. I love using them to add colour.

I was tempted by that coat in Asda on Thursday. I couldn't decide which colour to get either though

hlipop Sun 07-Oct-12 13:32:52

hlipop Sun 07-Oct-12 14:00:26

The Pink would still look very nice in February/ March as well when we are starting to think of Spring but it is still baltic

SecretCermonials Sun 07-Oct-12 14:09:34

Would be great if u could Actually buy them??? Get as far as checkout and it says none available!! angry

CuriousMama Sun 07-Oct-12 14:12:47

CuriousMama Sun 07-Oct-12 14:13:54

SecretC I blame MN grin

I didn't buy one though, I have a pink coat I got from Very but it's wee bit to tight so think I'll sell it? Never even worn the bugger!
