Hey guys! Happy Monday! Alright let’s talk weather, y’all. Anyone else experiencing unseasonably warm temps? It was freaking 95 degrees yesterday here in Dallas. How crazy is that? My sister and I tried to do our long run – 9 miles – and it was brutal. We ended up walk/running the 9 miles instead because the heat was just too much. I am under no illusion that weather is unpredictable in Dallas and usually warmer than most places, but this gal is over the heat. Is it too much to ask for to get some cool temps so we can wear our Fall clothes? Haha.
Truthfully, I do think our temps are dropping this week so you can bet your bum I’ll be wearing all the sweaters and all the coats – this coat included! If you haven’t noticed by now, I’m a big fan of Chicwish. They do such a great job of finding pieces that are well-made, on-trend, and affordable. This blush oversized coat is from there and it’s been so fun to style. I truly cannot wait until I get to style it again.
Coats are hard though, especially oversized coats. They may be easier to wear if you’re 5’10,” but for shorties like me (5’2″), they can easily swallow you up. And truth be told, I haven’t really purchased an oversized coat for that very reason until this year. I always felt like they just swallowed up my figure and made me look bigger and squattier than I really am. But have no fear, I have finally figured out a way to wear an oversized coat and still look slender!
3 SLIMMING TIPS:
- FORM FITTING CLOTHING – Whether you’re wearing a dress or pants and a sweater, wear form-fitting clothing underneath your jacket so that when it moves as you walk, people get a glimpse of your beautiful figure!
- MONOCHROMATIC CLOTHING – go for monochromatic clothing underneath to elongate and slim your figure. This neutrals or black.
- LEAVE UNBUTTONED – rather than button up your coat, leave it open. This lets your silhouette be seen and the oversized, unbuttoned coat will accentuate your figure!
PS – Be sure to check out this velvet duster I posted about a couple weeks back that is now on major sale!
