I set out this winter to find a long black coat I can wear with pretty much everything. I had been missing a black coat from my wardrobe over the last couple of winters so was very overdue. I’m a big fan of Joseph due to their quality, and have a similar long cream coat from them which I’ve been playing the alternating game all winter.
So, my advice on a black coat? Go classic without flashy details. A black coat is a forever piece so be picky and invest in a good quality cashmere or wool. Also make sure before you put it away for next year give it a little TLC by taking it to the dry cleaner – you’ll thank me later.
