Yes, it's actually that simple! Long coats are so great for fall and winter because you don't really have to worry that much about the whole outfit. Long coats are great on their one, so you don't need much more to complete the look which is great for lazy people. There's nothing better in fall and winter than just throwing on this one amazing coat and nobody cares what's underneath because the coat is an eye-catcher on it's own.
Now, as much as we all love black... Try and choose your long coat in a different color. Long coats look best in camel, neutral colors and light grey. Sometimes we need to leave all the black behind and try something different! AND you'll be much more noticeable in the dark which is actually a lot safer.
