WEARING AN OVERSIZED COAT

WEARING AN OVERSIZED COAT

Giving any outfit you’re wearing a polished finish is important for good style and elegance, whether you’re wearing an oversized coat or a fitted formal option. Coats are not just practical pieces, they are also the summary of your outfit. Additionally, they’re the first thing people see that represent your style, so make a conscious effort when selecting one. Just like an orange boucle coat that helps you create multiple fall fashion styling ideas, a great coat will dress up all your winter looks effortlessly. It should also fulfil its duties as a winter warmer so don’t neglect the obvious.

PICKING THE RIGHT COAT

This oversized coat initially caught my eye when I received Boohoo’s #FashPack cards, shown in this week in pictures #013. It was featured in their ‘In the city’ range and I knew I’d have much fun wearing the black oversized collar belted coat with many looks. Even when something is oversized, it is always still a relief when it fits perfectly & looks great, because there is such a thing as too oversized.

The oversized collar gives the coat a chic ladylike finish & it’s even better that you can style it two ways. The first is the open loose effortless way, while the second creates a wrapped closed effect. For a more feminine finish, I’d advise adding a waist belt if you plan on wearing the coat wrapped close. This stylish black coat is a worthy investment to add to any coat collection. It’s sophisticated style means it will serve you for many years. Lastly for this outfit, styling the coat over a denim shirt & check scarf was perfect for a windy & wet day. Although the outfit was quite casual, the coat added an elegant and polished finish.
