How to wear
I love the ’70s. It seems to me that they always gets a bad press; unfairly dubbed “the hippy decade that style forgot”. In reality, we have the ’70s to thank for tailoring and the fab maxi-dress.
This retro-style, two-tone coat is a perfect example of ’70s chic. The devil is in the detail, with large pockets, a contrast collar and cinched-waist for no-fuss fashion at its finest. There is something a bit Ali MacGraw in Love Story about the look. It’s classic, cool and perfect for grown-ups.
