If you think Mondays are long, you clearly haven’t seen the new Winter coats in town. Oh! They’re long. I mean as long as hangovers, or conversations with idiots or that one horrible Ex we all have in our lives. Unlike all the above though, they’re magnificent, and I for one, am more than in love with the long coat trend. Like so in love that I’m putting a ring on it and tattooing it forever on my ring finger.
Our relationship with winter coats (or even trench coats) over the years has been both static as well as hectic (much like any human relationship after a while, am not going through a break up if that’s what you are thinking). We’re always together once it gets too chilly to walk around half naked, but we always go back and forth between types of coats. One winter it was the pink coats, then it was the pastel ones, last season we were all dipped in the browns and nudes with the camel coats on the rise. Black coats don’t even need to be in for us to wear them, so there’s that. Then it was the wrap coat, the military style, the short styles, the midi styles, and now… I’m kinda guessing we’ll have a foot in the 70s still, while another will slowly step into the 80s fashions, hence the long coats.
When I say long I mean I mean way past midi. Think dramatic. Sophisticated. And very 80s rock-pop videos where beautiful 6ft tall supermodels were crossing streets in rugged jeans and plain tees with a massive endless coat hanging off their backs. That’s the style. That’s the look. In 2016 all we have to do is put our own spin on it. Personally I think long coats are way more flattering and way more trendy/sophisticated/classy/cool (pick your cool word) than any other length. And if they’re slightly oversized, and have a wrap design, or a belt… and voila!!
I decided to style my brown winter coat today in an official manner and despite the cold month of July coming to an end, it’s still chilly out here and I do love to respect the weather! How are you my fellow fashion style moguls!
