Let it be known that a black coat certainly doesn’t have to be boring. Even the most feature-less versions will always feel incredibly chic. Whether you opt for a tailored wool style, a maxi length or an oversized fit, a cosy puffer or a leather trench, it will not only go with everything you own but also add that cool effortlessness we’re basically all striving for.
You only need to look to some of the world’s best dressed people for proof that a black coat is a wise investment. Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are very rarely seen without theirs, and it would be controversial if their show for The Row didn’t include a version—even in spring. Camille Charrière, French It girl, original influencer and regular on the front-row circuit, just designed not one but two classic black coats in her recent sellout collaboration with Mango.
