Posted by for Fashion

From belted coats to military styles, here’s our edit of the best maxi coats to invest in this season.

The maxi coat is trending – longer than your calf-length coats and just above your ankle, this super chic style is the coat we all need this winter. 

They’re perfect for popping to the supermarket in your PJs (no one need ever know) and it won’t let in that winter chill as they cover you from neck to ankle. For extra comfort points, try a belted style to make the simple act of wearing a coat feel like receiving a hug – something we all need right now. 

The maxi coat is the most elegant of this season’s outerwear, a totally timeless style that you’ll wear for seasons to come. You can throw this style over your party wear in the future) or even your work wear and it will instantly give your look an elevated finish. 

From double breasted military styles to belted and tactile teddy styles, there’s something for everyone. 

Some word of advice, though, consider your height when purchasing a maxi coat so you don’t end up with a style that will drag on the ground. Pick a colour-way that will fit timelessly in your wardrobe, then team it with your favourite stomping boots and beanie hat to go on your merry way to your next outdoor winter walk adventure in style.
