I saw an article in one of the magazines with Rihanna wearing an oversized coat. The author had contrasted Rihanna with a person who had apparently worn a oversized coat in a very sloppy way. Oversized is tricky – from oversized coats to oversize bags – they can definitely overwhelm if not done correctly. The trick is to make sure that everyone knows you have put together an outfit rather than think you have put on your mother’s coat because you didn’t have on that fit.
In this picture I have an oversized Tracy Reese linen coat with turquoise print. Unlike Ri-Ri, I wore it with structured smaller bags. I made sure to keep everything underneath it sleek – a white tee-shirt, grungy jeans rolled up to show my shoes. (I actually don’t know it I would keep with the white tee, because it is so white that it makes the cream in the coat appear dingy)
I gave you two options here for shoes and bags. I like red – so, I paired it with a structure red patent leather vintage bag, and red Guess pointy to pumps – You all should have a pair of red pumps. If you don’t already, go find some.
I also tried it with a pair of suede pumps and this cute turquoise bag.
I generally don’t go with the matchy-matchy outfits, but the turquoise sort of grew on me the more I looked at the pics.
Which do you prefer?
