If there’s one piece I look forward to cold weather for it’s the long coat. A design with a long hem that falls below the knee has never failed me, both on style and warmth.

I think what makes it so ideal is the ease of movement and the ability to wear it open at any moment whilst not immediately freezing. Yes there’s always the puffer coat or the cashmere blends, but the long coat’s ability to both not look like you’re wearing a sleeping bag and also somehow, almost magically, make you look taller is unequivocally appreciated.

There’s something all these women have in common, besides their coat lengths – a real cool nonchalance that comes with braving the outdoors without sacrificing style. And I think that is something we can all rejoice over!
