These look amazing! I especially love the look with the shiny green leggings and the over-the-knee leg warmers... I want to rock that in about 6 months. In all black of course... =) Right now it makes me want to die. But its still beautiful.

O M G ! LOVE ! Agree with everyone here, the Alexander Wang is definitely a fav! I am short too, but I'd rock it! :)

I definitely have to go with the Jean Paul Gaultier. Gotta love how you can wear a long coat and still show off the tights!

Was just watching "The Box" over the weekend with Cameron Diaz where she wears that long crimson coat from the 70's in most of the movie thinking, we so need to bring that back, and here it is! Yay! ~ Love

I adore the long coats. Think how nice and warm your legs will be this winter !

I love so many of these ... I was wearing 'maxi' coats in the late 60's! Even made one of my own - rust suede-like fabric.

Sonia Rykiel - No hesitation on my part. :)

I love long coats for winter & they look even better when they are belted. I usually go for a black or caramel one and i accessorize it by changing belts or putting a lovely brooch.

How is your summer?

A girl should always have 1 long coat. I love the green leggings and thigh-highs on the one model. I'm a leg-wear and footwear fanatic : )
