Fall Fashion Trends: The Oversized Coat

Short, tall, bright, neutral… the oversized coat is back in full swing this fall. Coats are always chic, but this fall has taken on a twist by popularizing oversized coats that fit away from the body. These chic coats are reminiscent of the 1940s when movie stars and jazz singers like Billie Holiday wore draped jackets in luxurious fabrics.

While it’s sexy to wear a coat and only a coat, it’s not very practical unless you’re surprising your boyfriend at the airport. Mix your oversized coat with chic, close-fitting outfits to balance out your look and consider other elements to add glamour, like hair extensions, a sassy nail polish, a statement necklace, some pretty lashes, or bright footwear. The key to class is to pick a few stylistic touches to wear with your oversized jacket – not all of them.

 Leather is in again this fall, and sometimes head-to-toe. If you’ve got the boldness and sass (and body) to pull off an all-leather look, go for it! If you’re a little unsure, there’s nothing worse than feeling unconfident in your clothing. A leather coat can be found in neutral to bright colors. If you’re going to invest in an expensive jacket, consider getting a neutral color like black, brown, tan, or even white to wear with many different outfits. Bear in mind that a white coat will require consistent care and cleaning.

Classic trench coats in heavy cotton or canvas never go out of style and can double as a rain coat. These are also available in both bright and neutral colors, and if you don’t want to go too oversized on the jacket, they typically have chic matching belts so you can tighten the waist for a beautiful silhouette. The stylistic features on these coats are endless with pockets, zippers, cuts, lengths, collars, and buttons. Consider your own personal style elements and the statement you’re trying to make before investing in a trench. Get something you can wear for years to come and you’ll be able to class up your wardrobe every fall!
