Being a Taurean, you’d think I was used to a flash of red, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. In fact, apart from my Bella Freud 1970 jumper, this is the only other red item I own – but it feels good. Sometimes your wardrobe needs a change up, and this jacket is just what my wardrobe needed.

I’ve kind of made an unspoken vow to wear a bit more colour at the moment, and I’m loving the response – sometimes it’s good to go against your comfort zone, especially if it makes you feel good. It may sound silly, but wearing colour has had quite a positive impact on my outlook at the moment, which is always a good thing.

Obviously this jacket is crying out to be worn with jeans, but I’m excited to wear with shorts on holiday or over a dress in the evenings. The quilted style means it keeps you warm but is still cool enough for a summer jacket – and Monsoon do summer jackets so well.

And if you’re still not sure about the red, I’ve heard news that they are looking into doing a navy version for Autumn…watch this space!
