Happy Fashion Friday! Today’s post is all about 2 of the hottest Fall 2013 trends – Oversized Coats and Plaid. I’m excited to see oversized coats make a comeback because as an avid thrifter, I often spot the most unique oversized coats.
Eva Mendes’ look (below) is a perfect example of how to dress up an oversized coat. She still looks ultra feminine and for a petite woman, she doesn’t get lost in the size of the coat. For a more relaxed, casual and trendy approach, check out Nicole Richie (bleow). I love her entire ensemble – it’s rocker-chic, yet still simple. She’s not over doing it with tons of statement pieces. She lets the long, oversized leopard coat do all the talking!
I’ve created a few looks as inspiration for day to night looks, incorporating this trend. Honestly, I love them all but if I was forced to pick one look form each category, I’d go with the tan coat and Nikes for my casual look and the snakeskin dress and grey coat for my night look. What about you? Which looks are more your style?
Now let’s talk about the plaid trend. Since my middle school days, I’ve been a fan of plaid. I don’t wear the pattern as often as I’d like but when I do, I’m a happy camper! I really like the way Jessica Alba wears this trend. The pop of leopard is perfect and the fedora is a nice finish. I actually shared this picture of Jessica a while back and she was wearing a plaid skirt. Clearly, this trend really works for her. Another celeb who rocks this trend is Reese Witherspoon. I like how she wore cowboy boots in her look – very cute!
You can see that I took Jessica’s lead when creating my inspiration look and added a fedora, as well as this leopard clutch. I’ve actually worn the same clutch here, here, and here. It’s a Love, Cortnie original and is one of my favorite pieces. In both looks, the ladies were carrying large totes so I added this Zara one to my creation. Which look do you prefer? I’m more partial to the 1st look - the fedora does it for me!
Until next time, enjoy the weekend and be blessed…XO!
