The overcoat is the cult coat of the coldest season this year; it is worn in all its versions by all the celebrities and it is the star of the selfies of the most followed influencers. This is the best moment to choose one, when it is sales time and the cold season is still on. The winner in the category of the classiest coats is the checker pattern- tartan or pied de poule- like those by Stella McCartney. The trendiest is to be worn with a leather belt in a contrasting colour like the one by Prada. The total black style is evergreen- studded with golden buttons like in the version by Balmain or double breasted, masculine-inspired, like the one by Saint Laurent. The long and oversized models fit all figures and are truly quintessential, cannot be missing in a respectable wardrobe, and have to be chosen from the brand that has become a symbol of this trend: Max Mara.
