I Challenge You Not to Feel Fancy in This '90s It Coat

If you're the kind of girl who wears kitten heels to the corner shop for a pint of milk, then I have two things to say to you. Firstly, I think we might be kindred spirits, and secondly, something tells me you're going to love this coat trend.

Winter is favourite time of year, mainly because it provides ample occasions to get dressed up for. However, as someone who's also perpetually cold, I need a coat that not only keeps me toasty but also goes with my wardrobe. And I've found that none perform quite like the maxi coat.

Maxi coats were a big deal in the 1970s, often crafted in suede and finished with shearling cuffs and collars. Then, sometime during the '90s, they made a gargantuan comeback in rich velvet, which loaned itself well as an evening cover-up. Since then, they've become the ultimate night-out attire.
