Belted Coats

When talking about pros and cons of wearing one of this seasons biggest trend – the oversized coat – there’s always one con in particular that crosses my mind: loss of shape.
So when I first saw not the typical matching belt on an oversized coat but, instead, an actual belt I knew I had to take a look and try this trend.
Why I love it? It creates the perfect feminine figure either you add a belt on an oversized coat or a normal A line coat.
So if you want to be a bit more audacious and try on a separate coat and belt combo (like I do!) you have plenty of options and a few tips to keep in mind: the size of your belt does matter (you surely don’t want to end up ruining the amazing shape this trend can give you by choosing the wrong belt for your coat); the color and the material is also important (you may want to choose a contrasting color – like a burgundy belt for a grey coat – or a fantastic printed belt with a white coat. You can even try the metallic trend I told you about on a previous post by wearing a silver or golden belt with a black or dark blue coat).
Another interesting thing about this belt trend is how you can wear it with a blanket scarf or a cape. Since I elected winter oversized scarves my favorite accessory last fall/winter, I’m definitely going to apply this trend to it!

F/W 14/15 TREND REPORT – The Poncho

We´ve seen the craziness around Burberry Poncho – everyone from Olivia Palermo to Cara Delevigne has one. Besides, the fact that it is a customized piece makes it kind of unique (and everybody wants to feel one of a kind!).

But if the craziness began with Burberry, it soon expanded to all the other brands. The variety is huge, and the outfits you can pull with this trend are even bigger! Besides, the fact that it is a giant piece of wool makes you feel super comfortable – and in a way, makes you also a walking blanket!

I myself have an adorance for ponchos and capes (I am the proud owner of several!) so I guess this Winter will be perfect! 🙂
