How to wear the Oversized Tweed Coat and where to find it if you are plus size
The oversized tweed coat is a classic staple to have in every wardrobe. In fact, the oversized coat is a timeless piece that you can use all over again. So, it is worth to invest a little bit more in an item that will last for years. But this does not mean that you have to break your bank account! There are many high street brands that offer good choices that combine price and quality. Moreover, if you wait for the sales, you will find a great deal!
Before Christmas, I joined a Facebook giveaway hosted by Elvi, and I was lucky to win a fabulous oversized coat in tweed.
Elvi is a plus size brand that “create premium clothing for stylish women with curve appeal” (cit. Elvi). I like this brand because they know how to join classic styles to the latest trends. Their designs are flattering and are made to enhance the curves. Their collection is an excellent mix of classic staples and trendy pieces that are ideal for updating every wardrobe. Their price is also accessible.
How I styled the Oversized tweed coat
The oversized tweed coat, like other classic staples, is versatile. You can style it with matching trousers, with jeans, with a skirt or with a dress. You can pair it with a casual look or with a more sophisticated one.
As I love mixing classic pieces with the trends of the season, I wore it with a leather zip skirt, a blouse with some ruffle details and a pair of patent ankle boots, that I have already shown you in other outfits.
I also accessorised the coat with a faux fur collar.
For the make – up, I have focused the attention on the lips using the new Color Riche Gold Obsession Metallic Lipstick in Plum Gold. Metallic lips are the beauty trend of the season, and I like them when they are paired with a natural make – up; ideal for a day look.
