Believe or not, this picture was from last year, around October. It really reinforced in me the importance of only investing in trends that will carry over for years to come. For example, a classic oversized coat will always be a great piece to own, compared to some trendy ones like some particular types of prints.
I love oversized big, bold coats and give me a little bit of color on that coat, and I am a goner. I wear a lot of blacks during the colder months so adding a pop of color with my coats is a tip I use to switch up my look.
This jacket was a vintage find at my local thrift store and I just love how it looks just like some of the coats on the market these days, because fashion is constantly being recycled. For a little bit of a modern twist I added this striped belt and I must say a whole year later, I really like this look.
Fall is at its peak right now, all the leaves are turning colors and falling into piles. While I love fall colors, every year I tend to gravitate a bit more towards one in particular and as you can probably tell, rust is my fave fall color this year.
I also love an oversized fit and according to “fashion rules” that is not flattering for a plus size figure as it makes one appear bigger. But who cares? These days, I am all about being comfortable and fashionable at the same time so I care not if I’m looking “bigger”. So these days, my closet is full of oversized sweaters and jackets that are two sizes bigger than my true size.
I love pairing my oversized sweaters with skirts and booties for fall, what a way to keep it simple and chic. This open duster is probably the only medium-sized clothing that I own, but I loved the color and the sleeves and thankfully, it is cut a little big so it works. Finally, my skirt is thrifted and I really liked the paisley print and of course, the color.
