Max&Co. coat and bag
Finding the one.
With spring finally upon us it's time for wardrobe updates and new wardrobe entries. Right now, the No. 1 entry should be a spring coat.
Coats and jackets - or more correctly the right coats and jackets - have the capability to improve any outfit. Any understated outfit, be it a simple dress or denim with a plain t-shirt, can be immediately be transformed from basic to great, with the right coat. While the "coat talk" may be a traditionally Fall/Winter topic, typically covered extensively in the glossy pages of September Issues, let me just add that not all outerwear is created equal and not all coats are winter coats.
As coats and jackets have such an impact on outfits, don't be quick to dismiss their power when the weather gets warm and be sure to trade you winter heavyweight pieces for a spring coat that will last. If your style leans towards minimalism, then outerwear is definitely something you should invest in.
This navy Max&Co. spring coat, with its subtle egg shape, its kimono closure and its oversized epaulettes is a classic, but a statement piece nonetheless, that is able to make any outfit look good, any time of the day. Although it stands out on its own, with its three-dimensional double weave fabric and detailing giving it a strong sense of character, it can be styled in countless ways - over black skinny jeans, a black cami top and Max&Co's metalic leather Derby shoes, over a romantic white mini dress that juxtaposes its boldness or as I wore it - with the ultimate flared jeans and a bright mini bag, as downsizing is a must when it comes to handbags.
What's your perfect spring coat?
