Fall 2014: The Boyfriend coat

Boyfriend coatIf you haven’t seen the ‘Boyfriend coat’ then you must have been living in a cave for the past month as this has been the latest huge trend for this season. The typical winter coat has seen an update this year with oversized mannish style coats that ooze in sophistication and class. They are the perfect coats for winter; all snuggly and warm as well as being stylish and can be worn with pretty much anything for an effortless but chic look. I already have my eyes on one particular jacket from Topshop which I have listed below amongst many of my other favourites. Coats above are from New Look, House of Fraser (Dorothy Perkins) and Topshop and also check out the Pick of the Month for September which is also another of my favourite boyfriend coats.

Fall 2013 Trends: Oversized Coats

One of the biggest trends this season is oversized coats. Making an appearance in collections for Victoria Beckham, Celine, Carvin and many others this trend is huge this season and perfect for the colder weather. There is nothing more appealing than being wrapped up in a nice big coat during winter time and thats why I love this trend as these coats are the right way to go. Pastels have also been huge for this season and you may find that a lot of oversized coats out there feature the pastel trend to give the oversized menswear silhouette a more girly approach. Below are some oversized coats you can get your hands on from the high street, hover over each image for prices and the store. What do you think of this trend?
