As the cooler months set in, it’s important to select vibrantly coloured clothes to beat the winter blues. This season’s ‘in’ shade is violet and it’s currently available across the stunning collection of garments and accessories from Bonmarché. Here’s a look at some of the must-have Bonmarché items that are ideal for winter and also feature a violet theme.
The perfect coat always features the ideal mix of elegant design, warmth and comfort. During the long, grey days and nights of winter, be sure to steer clear of monochrome grey and black. Instead it may be a good idea to opt for statement colours that brighten your overall outfit.
The Bonmarché collection of ladies fashion features a stunning range of coats for any occasion, including hooded coats, duffle jackets, lightweight parkas and quilted gilets.
This classical ladies’ single breasted coat is a stunning example. Featuring a fashionable peter pan collar, with feminine stitching and fully lined, soft-touch fabric, it’s the perfect mix of style and comfort. The flattering stitching and highly tailored look also makes it an excellent coat choice for plus size figures.
Basics With A Splash of Fun
A good quality and well-fitted pair of jeans is a must-have item for every woman’s wardrobe. Darker shades of stretch denim are perfect for gliding over women’s curves and creating a flattering shape for your figure. Opting for a bootleg or a straight cut design is also the most comfortable option for everyday wear.
Keep an eye out for metallic stitching, delicate floral embroidery and diamante embellishments. You can match these fun little touches with a versatile range of outfits, like a tailored blazer and heels during the evening or boots and knitted cardigan during the day.
Handbags are the perfect accessory to add a splash of colour to any outfit, whether it’s a chunky shoulder bag, elegant handbag or fun and funky clutch.
Violet colour schemes match perfectly with a matte finish, as seen in this beautiful everyday shoulder bag. Featuring a central zip-top fastening and an added twist lock, it’s sure to keep your valuables safe and secure. The subtle faux croc effect is another fashionable touch, which is accentuated by the tassel detailing. Another perfect mix of stylish and practical, this versatile choice would work well for an office outfit or could add a burst of colour to jeans and a sweater.
Scarves are perfect for bringing that extra ‘something’ to any outfit, whether it’s warmth, colour or eye-catching design. They are also versatile enough to suit anyone’s sense of style, whether they prefer chunky knits, delicate lace detailing or a classical, supersoft pashmina.
Feminine florals are the perfect way to incorporate a touch of violet, like this beautiful, lightweight printed scarf. It features a delicate purple and grey floral motif, complemented by the casual woven fabric. This subtle and soft accessory is the ideal choice to wear to a winter brunch or casual coffee date.
Dreary weather doesn’t need to mean dreary accessories! Beat the winter chill with fun-loving and vibrant choices, like a practical umbrella that is bursting with colour.
This slim-line women's umbrella features a cheeky animal print design. With a sturdy black handle and a removable cover, it will keep any wearer looking dry and fashionable this winter.
