Oh, trends. Wonderful, hateful trends. When the trend is for pin-straight hair and yours is curly. Or the bob comes back and you’ve just finished growing yours out. Or, you know, any kind of clothing that looks good on models and model types, but on real people, it’s a bit questionable.
The big trend for Fall 2013 seems to be oversized coats. They were everywhere on the runway. The most fashionable of fashion bloggers are throwing them into every look.
I have to say, I LOVE the look of them (despite also thinking they look like the coat-length equivalent of an 80s blazer). I mean, they come in all sizes and with different details.
Do you have to be stick thin to pull them off?
One thing I’ve learned over the years for dressing my frame is that streamlined = slimming. I’ve never been a toothpick, but besides for that, I have curves (in the right places, and I am grateful for that). So when you add up the fact that I’m not tiny with my figure type, things that are oversized and bulky just make me look large.
I have not tried on any oversized coats yet, but something tells me I should stick to my peacoat.
What do you think? Do you love this trend or do you hate it? Have you bought an oversized coat? Do you think it’s a trend best left to our slimmer sisters, or do you think anyone can pull it off?
