How to wear a colourful coat

How to wear a colourful coat

There’s a reason this uplifting colour has been described as ‘dopamine yellow’. This warming blast of mustard is providing a welcome boost, right now. That’s not another new tone to compliment my grey hair, I have dabbled with saffron (the only shade of yellow I can wear) before. In the early 1990s, an oversized, mustard polo neck jumper from Jigsaw and a not-quite matching corduroy jacket from French brand Chipie looked the business paired with black ski pants and Chelsea boots. Two dollops of mustard add instant zing to any outfit.
