Fashion has to be forward-looking, which is how we found ourselves watching the Autumn/Winter 2016 runway shows. It didn’t take me long to spot a new hot trend – maxi coat. Long coat trend caught up my attention straight away. I think it is a very elegant and sophisticated piece of the wardrobe. I suggest that you put maxi coats on your shopping list without further ado. And now let’s learn how to style it.
Long Coat Trend: Elegant or Casual?
Nothing shouts sophisticated chic so much as navy or black maxi coat. Therefore, I recommend to interacting long coat into elegant looks. I styled this coat for the dinner date, using the pieces from Dorothy Perkins’ partywear range. It is not a surprise, for those who know me well, that I choose classy outfits even during the festive season.
This type of outfits is very easy to create. Choose a maxi coat as a feature of the outfit. Add the dress that would highlight all the curves and best parts of your body. Sparkle up the outfit with some glitzy accessories and you are ready to go! With Christmas inspiration in mind, I went for a yellow gold metal accessories and interacted it in all my accessories. Metallic gold shoes, statement necklace and the chain of the handbag match perfectly and create a cohesive theme for the outfit. Look, it matches the buttons on the dress too!
Wear Black and Navy Together?
Many people are scared to mix navy and black in one outfit. There is an opinion that these two colours don’t go together. It seems like, not wearing black and navy together is one of those seemingly all-powerful rules that everyone knows and few dare to break. I disagree. Navy, brown, black, khaki, grey are neutral shades. They can be easily combined with one look because they are not bright colours. Those shades, when worn together, create an effortless and stylish look.
Whether in a single garment or combined in a head-to-toe look, black and navy blue look ultra-sophisticated together. It’s dark without being gothic, and sleek without being too stuffy — and unless you are wearing an actual suit, who wants to look matchy-matchy these days?
