If you haven’t secured a chic coat yet this season, aren’t sure what style to invest in, or need a little guidance and inspiration, then this one’s for you. After all, it’s never too late to invest in a great coat. There are a variety of fresh trends as well as classic silhouettes around right now, but we’re seeing long coats in particular dominate this season (thanks to Saint Laurent, The Row, Victoria Beckham… to name but a few of the designers who showcased ankle-grazing toppers on the F/W 23 runways).

The simple and uncomplicated tailored maxi coat is one of the most elegant styles around, and while it’s certainly trending, it’s a completely timeless cut that you’ll wear for seasons to come. Its full-body coverage and tailored fit require little fuss, and it’s perfect for everything from running errands to attending dinner parties. It’s versatile and polished and will make you feel pulled together in an instant. Below, we’re sharing some of our favorites out there right now that will keep you warm from neck to ankle while oozing classic elegance.
