Oversized Outerwear

Being on the shorter side of the height spectrum (I’m only 5 ft 2), I usually try to stick with coats that are not too long.  I have always felt like a longer coat, though gorgeous, overwhelms me.  I tend to generally stay with items that are about peacoat length when it comes to outerwear.  However, I fell in love with this coat months ago, and finally decided it was time to go for it. 

Oversized Outerwear: Leopard Jacket

This week’s Glam and U by Kotex® Trends to Try Contest theme is oversized outerwear.  I’m loving that these themes are forcing me to step out of my comfort zone and try something new.  I have to admit, I am pleasantly surprised by how much I like the look of this coat on me…you never know until you try something!  I was initially drawn to it because of the fun animal print and neutral color scheme….it reminds me of a snow leopard print.  Now, I’m loving how warm and cozy it is!


I love that the length of the sleeves is perfect for showing off bracelets.  Next time, I would love to try this coat with my pink studded heels….I think that pink would be the perfect fun pop of color with the white and grey.

    That coat is beautiful! It doesn’t make you look short at all…and it keeps your legs warmer than a peacoat would!
