It seems that whenever I go shopping, i'm drawn to statement patterns and bold colours, which ultimately leads to not owning many basics to pair with them. I've been searching for a black coat for a while, but never really saw any that were worth the money, or were even that nice. So when I stumbled upon this black maxi coat in a charity shop last week, I just had to have it. The coat is actually really heavy and warm, which makes me think the coat must have been a lot more than the £15 I paid! I rarely ever spend over £30 on an item of clothing, I can never justify it because i think of the amount of hours i'd work for the money, for a top i'd wear maybe 5 times then sell on Ebay. Is it just me? Anyway, i think maxi coats are quite hard to wear, especially being only 5ft4, so i'll be pairing my black maxi coat with platform boots this winter, and minimal tailoring. 
How would you style it?
