For fashionistas who are wondering how to revamp their outerwear for the frigid weeks ahead, a floor-length coat just may offer a chic sartorial solution. Whether you’re bundled up for a night out on the town or simply layering up before heading to the office, try turning to the extra-long coat trend this season. Draw your inspiration from the Fall/Winter 2016 runways, and stun in a floor-sweeping topper just like a runway model.
This season, turn to gypsy chic and bohemian style as you pile on the contrasting textures and vivid, eye-catching prints. Take your sartorial cues from the Roberto Cavalli runway, where the super long coat was revamped with textured velvet and dreamy dark hues. Meanwhile, a floaty patterned frock, leopard print skinny scarf and chunky boots wrap up your entire ensemble.
If you’re a corporate gal, look no further than the Balmain catwalk, where silky pink satin was the look du jour. Try pairing a floor-length blush pink coat with a matching fitted top, coordinating high-waisted skinny trousers and navy blue ankle booties.
As day turns into night, follow the example from the Valentino runway and slip into a dusty pink wool coat. Accessorize your elegant look with a patterned sheer maxi dress, dangling earrings and a quilted leather purse.
