After a little break from the blog I was eager to show you one of my must-have items for winter: the maxi coat. This is probably the longest coat I’ve ever owned. At first I walked straight past this Theyskens’ Theory grey coat in TKMaxx. But on closer inspection it started to grow on me (especially when I saw how much it had been reduced – 90% off the RRP!). I’d heard of the label and knew it was a good quality brand but it wasn’t exactly on my radar.
It isn’t a thick coat but it does provide maximum coverage. I love the deep double pockets which I think are a great feature. It has a single hook and eye fastening on the waist, which gives it a flattering shape.
Unfortunately, just as I was about to take the photos it started to rain and showed no sign of letting up. Anyway, I wasn’t going to be put off by a bit rain! So I grabbed an umbrella and managed to get a few snaps without getting soaked. A great winter coat is one of the few compensations for months of horrible weather so we might as well treat ourselves, right?
