Street style wearing long coat

Maxi coats are the best style to invest in right now – here are 13 you’ll want to wear on your winter walk

Posted by for Fashion

Keep warm from neck to ankle with maxi coats that are equal parts cool and cosy. 

Let us tell you a little secret: it’s never too late to invest in a great winter coat. In fact, it’s never too late to snap up any of the best pieces that create the ultimate capsule wardrobe. Of course it’s easy to get sucked in by one of the many trends, but some pieces are best left classic. While the maxi coat is trending, it’s a style that’s proven it has longevity by returning each and every year. Longer than calf-length coats and just above your ankle, this super chic style is the coat we all need this winter and beyond. 

The long-line coat is perfect for popping out in your PJs  or favourite pair of joggers (no one need ever know), and it won’t let in the winter chill, covering you from neck to ankle. With so many iterations to choose between – from belted to teddy and faux shearling – you’re guaranteed to find one to suit your fit, shape and colour preference. 

We’re naming the maxi coat one of most elegant styles around; a totally timeless cut that you’ll wear for seasons to come – you can throw this style over your everyday uniform and it’ll look equally chic for evening, too.  

A 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 that will work seamlessly 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. Here are 13 maxi coats we’re championing this year.
