Each year, I, like many of you, look forward to buying that perfect winter coat and this year it is all about red coats and red jackets. Yes, this year your cosy cover up can really turn heads as well as helping you brave those harsh winter winds with some style. However, if a show stopping pillar box red jacket for the festive season is not your thing and you need something a little more subtle, the choices are endless at boohoo.
Whether its the hottest coat off the catwalk, or a style classic, whatever you choose, I guess you never really think about how lucky we are to even have the opportunity to buy a coat! Well, the guys over at Day Break have thought about this and, along with The Salvation Army are heading up the Donate A Coat Campaign. The idea is that while you’re out buying your hot red coat this season, rediscover your community spirit and, well, donate a coat. It really is as simple as that.
Day Break will be collecting your coats and, in the spirit of Christmas, The Salvation Army will be handing them out to the homeless, as well as the elderly and families in need this winter. At Boohoo HQ we wanted to give something back to the community, so sent some coats and got involved. And we weren’t the only ones. From Robbie Williams to The Saturdays and Cher Lloyd the celebs love a good cause and have all had a good rummage through their coat closets to find some red hot coats and jackets for a cause. So why don’t you take our lead and give something back this Christmas.
