We may have entered a new year, but the chilly weather has followed us into 2024. After a festive season of bundling up with chunky knits, shearling coats and fluffy blankets, who says we have to leave the cosy energy behind now January’s here?

We’ll admit that our Twixmas looks are perhaps a little impractical in January, especially now we’re back at work and getting in the swing of a normal routine, but our Instagram feeds have found us the snug-yet-practical meet-in-the-middle answer: Maxi coats.

Sarah nails smart-casual chic by dressing down her maxi coat with a striped shirt, wide-leg jeans and a pair of sneakers. 

Worn by plenty of our favourite fashion people this winter, the longline coat trend has subtly been catching eyes all season long. From wool blends to faux fur designs, wrap coats to quilted puffer styles, we’ve seen an assortment of maxi variations to choose from, with a coat to suit every style and occasion. 

Spotted on well-known faces such as Hailey Bieber and Simone Ashley, the sleek outerwear style is key to elevating any winter outfit; Add a touch of luxe to wide-leg jeans, a long-sleeved T-shirt and off-duty trainers, or pair it with a midi skirt, relaxed-fit knit and pointed-toe boots for a chic and put-together look.

For a classic fail-proof option, Chiara pairs her longline coat with a pair of glossed leather boots and a mini bag. 

This minimalist trend is one that we can see sticking around, so, if you’re looking to invest in a luxury style to bring out year after year, this might just be your time. We’ve also rooted out some great affordable buys, with price tags under £150, from high street retailers such as Weekday, Zara and Monki.

Ilirida places the spotlight on her stunning shearling-trimmed leather number.

I can picture this with so many outfits, from a sweatshirt, leggings and low-top sneakers to a skirt-tights-and-boots combo.

We can’t talk maxi coats without including some faux fur, especially this one from Raey which I’m adding to my wish list right away. 

It’s a fact, The Row never misses with their transeasonal sartorial designs. 

Speaking of tailored elements, Khaite’s Bontin coat boasts a clean-cut, boxy silhouette.
