BIGGER IS BETTER
January 14th, 2015
Which is the Top must-have every woman needs for this winter? The statement coat that will make us look fashionable and keep us warm through the frigid months ahead!. When it comes to investing in a new outfit topper for winter, oversized coats, are my statement coat of choice. Though i know it’s been trending for a year now the most recent revamp of the jacket style takes a slightly more fitted approach, with streamlined silhouettes, cleaner lines, and lengths that vary from mid-thigh to below the knee and no matter what your shape and size is, when styled correctly, this type of coat looks good on everyone. It’s just a matter of balancing out your proportions to make an oversized coat work for you. Just Remember:
Keep the rest of your outfit fitted. Wear body-skimming pieces underneath to help balance the bountiful coat. Skinny jeans or leggings are great casual pairings, while a pencil skirt or cigarette pants are dressier options.
Play with proportions. Pairing an oversized coat with shorts or mini skirts is so on trend right now. A shorter hemline under a longer coat is a chic way to offset the volume on the top half.
Give yourself a lift. Wear heels to give yourself some added height and lengthen your silhouette. The shoes will also provide a sense of proportion to your oversized ensemble.
Add structured accessories. Structured totes, purses, and pointy-toe shoes have straight lines and angles that compliment your king-size coat. They’ll throw in a unique punch and exemplify the fashion-forwardness of your look.
