The bigger the better. Now in the winter is the perfect time to rock that oversized coat. Remember you want to feel like a teddy bear, but you do not want to look like one. Here are a few tip that will help with that:
1.) Wear slim fitting clothing underneath, such as skinny jeans or a pencil skirt to balance the bulky coat. You don’t want little children coming up to you, asking for present, thinking you are the female version of Santa Claus.
2.) Don’t overdue the jewellery. You already have a heavy coat weighing you down, another 20 brackets and a big bling-bling necklace might just send you to the hospital with back pain (okay maybe not. But when in doubt quote Coco Channel and here is what she said, “I always take off at least one piece of jewelry before I leave the house…to ensure that I am not overdoing it.”)
3.) Buy your size. If it says that the coat is an oversized coat, it is oversized! Do not go buy an oversized coat that is 5 sizes larger then your size. You do not want to have a cape. You are not in Star Wars.
In the picture I am wearing a Diane von Fürstenberg coat. Buy her new biography, “The Woman I Wanted to Be” here.
