Okay, dramatic title aside 😀 if you only want to splurge on one nice coat this winter then you need to consider the Burgos coat. If you follow me on Instagram, you probably know by now, that I love my light beige one so much so that I got a camel one as well! I got a second one because I like the flattering feminine cut, unbelievably soft wool (100% virgin wool) and I am a sucker for a good wrap coat.
If you prefer a more classic style, then this coat should be on top of your list. Wear it casually with jeans and loafers, dress it up for an evening out or wear it to the office with smart trousers and block heels. It comes in all the classic colours; black, beige, camel, red and blue. The black and beige are currently on sale here – sizes are limited so hurry! Most of the Max Mara sites have already sold out in the popular colours, but the beige is still available here and here, the camel is on sale here and the red is on sale here.
In terms of sizing for the beige coat, I went up a size (UK 6) so that I could layer thicker sweaters underneath and to have an oversized look overall. For the camel coat, I took my usual size (UK 4) for a more fitted look. Here they are side by side for comparison.
