The maxi coat

I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect maxi coat for a long time and when I was shopping randomly in the city, this brown maxi coat from Maje cought my eye immediately and I couldn’t resist buying it. It’s the piece you wear the most this season, taking you from chilly October evenings right through ’til February or even until March. If you’re at a loss on which shape or style to choose (we know, the options are endless), just think which coat would suit you the best and you would probably wear with most of your outfits.

Styling a long coat (and I mean long with ankle long) with different outfits might seem very easy to you, but you need to keep a lot of things in mind before wearing and matching an outfit. In my opinion long coats look best in camel, light greys and light neutral colours. A bit oversized, but not slouchy, unless you want to go for that hobo-chic style which is fantastic, wrap-style, or with a belt that you can effortlessly cinge at the waist. One of the biggest looks out there, that everyone is with, is the chic meets Tom-boy-ish style. Sneakers, jeans or even skirts of all sorts, slouchy sweaters, tees, jumpers and a massive coat on top. Sunglasses and a beanie for bright light winter days and ready you are:).

With this brown coat I wanted exactly to create a chic yet casual look and wore dark blue skinny jeans and sneakers to get the realx feel. Just add some chic pumps and voilà you’re upgrade is done for the next level of look.

What do you think about maxi coats, do you like them?

Have a great weekend.
