Style your closet: With a Boyfriend Coat

Yes, oversized toppers are in trend, and this season, it’s stronger than ever. You will not be able to escape the oversized mood. I’m particularly dying to find the PERFECT boyfriend coat. It’s incredible how this little hint of additional volume makes the classic coat looks like a totally revisited item. Recently, I’m just in love with all the clothing that have roots in menswear. After all, girls can rock them better can’t we? Personally, I loved the oversized coats in the Isabel Marant Pour H&M capsule collection but couldn’t get my hand on any, so I’m still looking for the right piece! Also, please note that you will also find the oversized coats in resort and spring 2014 collections of brands like Celine, Burberry Prorsum and Stella McCartney. This implies that this fall trend is officially extended until March-April. Yay!! Few tips to find your perfect boyfriend coat:
1. If you are still unsure about this trend, invest into a classic color like camel. It will help you never regret your choice.
2. Go for winter shades of white, these options will make any outfit look gorgeous.
3. If you’re not a very tall person, you can opt for the shorter versions of boyfriend coats. 4. You can join the red coats’ team for some statement making.
Few styling tips to rock your boyfriend coat:
1. Commit to the style by wearing it with boyish trousers and classic kicks.
2. Go for high contrast and invest into a printed boyfriend coat, it will make your style more fun and daring. You could wear a black&white boyfriend coat with a pair of leggings, combat boots and a plain scarf.
3. Wear the tightest dress with the most oversized coat, the contrast is a statement in itself.
4. If you own a shorter version of the boyfriend coat, you can sometimes wear it on your shoulders. It’s an interesting twist and it gives you a lot of elegance.
