Autumn Trend: To Oversize or Not To Oversize?

Monday, October 29, 2012


Remember the other week we talked about French art of layering? Well, many of you asked about this coat so I did a bit of research and fell in love with it. It’s a French winter staple known as the oversized or cocoon coat. I’ve always fancied the idea of bigger and snugger winter covers but never really found the right one, till now that is. The classic wool oversized beauty is perfect for French layering, great for toning down the volume with chic and tailored separates underneath or just simply to keep you warm all winter long while looking classy.

Loves, I will be wearing one with a pair of cigarette pants and booties or wool trousers and animal print flats and maybe even with a sleek tailored shift dress and ankle boots for a romantic date with Balazs.

What do you think? Would you wear it? xo

P.S: Also, navy trench coats and the new black of the season.
P.P.S. Plus, a few other autumn trends you might like!

Mostly during Autumn in Indy you can get away with sweaters and thinner jackets in the beginning. But towards Thanksgiving and into December it gets so cold here that you really do need a coat. I realize after looking through my closets and doing a real wardrobe edit I need a new coat. YIKES! These coats are lovely!

Hmm, I've always thought of a Winter coat as a bit of a classic/ staple so I'd go with something fitting like a glove rather than oversizing it, but these looks are all gorgeous too!
