Wardrobe Consultation | The Oversized Coat

The oversized coat is a trend that's becoming increasingly popular due to its comfort and versatility. It's also a trend that we'll see carry over to autumn/winter 14 as the oversized masculine silhouettes continue to reign amongst fashion. With the likes of Kim Kardashian sporting her Max Mara oversized coat and with high street stores following,  its become even easier to get a hold of. My favourite  at the moment is the Hobbs Daisey Coat, which is currently available in dark grey on sale. When my client enquired about a winter coat, I had to recommend this one. The colour is versatile, not only is is warm, but the oversized shape allows for thick knitwear or smaller jackets to be worn underneath without looking bulky. It's definitely a statement piece which is needed a create the perfect capsule wardrobe. I styled this coat using three different outfits which belongs to my client to show her how easily it can be worn.

Smart Evening Out

This is an example of how to wear your oversized coat to create a smart outfit for an evening out. I opted for a black and white printed shift dress which compliments the colour of the coat. I wanted to include a bit of brightness to the outfit by adding a pair of red open toe heels. The contrast in colour, print and texture works perfectly well together. Add a black clutch to finish off the outfit and also a black belt on top of the coat or dress to define the waist.


A Bright Spring Day

This is outfit is perfect for a bright spring day out. I wanted to show my client an example of how you could incorporate this coat into spring. The sun is out, however the weather is still chilly which means a winter coat is still needed. I picked out a mustard pleated dress she had with a thick tan belt to define her waist. As it's spring, I wanted to add a pair of lightly coloured wedges. To complete the look, I added a handbag to match her belt. The mixture of colours isn't something that one would usually pair together, however it works perfectly well. The art behind creating the perfect outfit is by experimenting through trial and error. It's amazing what you can discover!

 Smart Casual

This smart casual outfit is perfect for the workplace. I love how bold colours work nicely with grey which is why I opted for a pair of green straight leg trousers. I added a textured white blouse to replace the common white shirt which is usually everyone's first choice. A pair of nude heels instantly tones down the outfit for work, while the black handbag which is the perfect size and shape for paperwork completes the look.
