Your COMPLETE Guide on Winter's "IT" Piece: Oversized Coats

By Nerina Hodzic Poplata 

Wrap yourself in something warm and comfortable this winter season: oversized and chic coats! Wide, x-large and warm coats dominated the fashion week runways, e.g., Céline and Alexander Wang, for the fall/winter 2013 collections. So, the trend was obvious! Tip: the "it" colors for the x-large coats are: gray, brown, black, and the most popular color: pink!

The question remains: how to wear an oversized coat?   Below are my styling tips! 

1. Balance. Balance the large width of the coat with tights or skinny jeans.


2. Skip the scarf! Since the design of the coat is minimalist wit sharp lines, the less you wear with the coat, the better.

3. Carry a clutch purse. There is no way to carry a purse with a long shoulder strap as it will spoil the overall silhouette of the coat.


4. Minimalist Footwear. Wear refined and minimalist footwear. Forget platforms and grunge boots!

5. Save Time. If you do not have time to carefully choose your outfit, then play it safe: wear black, white and/or gray outfit. With a pink oversized coat, and add any of these three colors, you will make no mistakes!


6. Make a Fashion Statement. For those brave girls who strive for a newsworthy outfit: see below the street style photos of some the "it" fashionistas and their outfit combinations with an oversized coat. May you be inspired!

7. For Your Day & Night Outfit: The x-large coat is the most convenient for your daily outfits, e.g., the office, cafes, and running errands around the city. With that said, if you opt out to wear the oversized coat for a night out on the town, complete the look with a statement bag, chunky jewelry or some other edgy accessory for your head.

B O S A N S K I : 

Širok, velik, topao kaput okupirao je modne revije za jesen/zimu 2013. godine. Pojavljuje se u gotovo svim kolekcijama, od Céline do Alexander Wang. Stoga, očito je jasno šta je trend za predstojeće hladne dane. Ali, u vezi tog veliko predimenzioniranog kaputa stoji veliko pitanje: kako ga trebate nositi???Posebno zbog toga što je pored sivog, braon i svevremenskog crnog, apsolutni hit kaput u pink boji.

U nastavku donosim nekoliko savjeta za dobar styling uz trendovski oversized kaput!

1. Balansiraj širinu gornjeg dijela sa helankama ili uskim hlačama

2. Preskoči šal! Ovaj trend se ogleda u čistom minimalizmu i oštrim linijama, te što manje na sebi imaš komplikovanih stvari, to bolje.


3. Nosi clutch torbicu. Nema šanse da nosiš tašnu sa dugim pojasom preko ramena, jer će pokvariti cjelokupnu siluetu kaputa.


4. Obuća neka bude profinjena i minimalistička. Platforme i grunge čizme zaboravite u ovoj priči.



5.Ukoliko nemate vremena da pomno odaberete outfit, onda igrajte na sigurno: crno, bijelo i/ili sivo. Uz pink oversized kaput i ove tri boje nema greške!


6. Za one hrabrije cure koje žele outfit vrijedan svakog pogleda: pogledajte street style fotografije fashionistica, te način na koji one kombinuju ovakve kapute. Neka vam budu inspiracija!



7. Ovaj trend nosiv je pretežno u dnevnim varijantama, odlazak na posao, šetnja gradom, kafica sa prijateljicom, svakodnevne obaveze…..no, ukoliko se odlučite za noćni izlazak ili odlazak na neki modni event, onda svoj look upotpunite nekom interesantnom torbom, sjajnim nakitom ili pak nekim detaljem za glavu!
