I had been after the perfect grey coat for quite some time until I came across this grey longline cocoon coat from Zara back in late December. I saw it whilst splashing out on various sale items, but because I had been after a grey coat for so long, I decided to think about it.
I then bought it a few weeks later after the sale madness had toned down. The coat was £69.99, which I don’t think was too much to spend on a coat that I’d be wearing pretty much 8 months of the year.
The light grey colour looks fresh and can be constantly updated for all the seasons, as well as this I just love the length of the coat. A longer line coat looks more high fashion and can make you appear slimmer and taller, I wear this coat to work most days and I always feel the need to wear heeled boots with the look and for a more casual approach I sometimes just wear flats.
I prefer longer line coats as most of the time I tend to wear shorter skirts and I like the contrast between shorter hemlines and longer coats. When I’m wearing jeans with the coat I prefer to opt for a more high fashion streetwear take by wearing my chloé inspired bag across my body for a current look and most of the time it’s more practical for when I’m shopping!
Considering that I’m not tall, I tend to stick to longline coats that are slim fitted as I don’t want to look too unshapely, especially if I want to wear more loose fitted layers underneath.
When you’re buying a more expensive longline coat, it’s probably better that you choose colours such as grey, black, navy or khaki as these are colours are classic, never go out of fashion and can be clashed well against many other shades and patterns.
