Fall Trend: The Boxy Jacket

Jil Sander // Michael Kors // Stella McCartney

These past few days in D.C. haven’t felt like fall, however, colder temps are bound to make an appearance sooner or later. I’m not a fan of frigid weather, however, I am a big fan of chic outerwear. I always try to rock a coat in a bold hue, funky pattern or hot trend to make fall and winter a little less gloomy! 
One outerwear trend that dominated the runways this season is the boxy, oversized coat. Just imagine wrapping yourself up in a cocoon of a jacket this season. Sounds amazingly comfortable, right? The oversized coat is definitely a statement piece that will make layering a lot more interesting this fall. Balance out your oversized outerwear with slim fitting bottoms, such as pencil skirts or skinny jeans.

Would you rock the oversized coat trend this season?

    Loveee these! I feel like I'd have to be sure to wear skinnies and heels with this look since I'm short, but I love how the boxiness plays with volume and proportions!

    I love this trend. I would love to purchase a brighter colored jacket like the orange or pink.

  3. I like the look of the box jacket in theory, but as a curvy girl, I think it'd just look like a shapeless sack on me! I'll leave this trend to the skinny girls.
