The Long Coat | OOTD

There is one particular trend I am seeing everywhere! The long coat. I am loving this trend! My version of the style is my Trench Coat.

I actually bought this a year ago because I am so fashion forward (lol I am just kidding, just coincidence it has become so popular!). I have always loved the style but I was scared of it because I am quite small! However I got over that and played around with outfits and I thought I would show you one way I like to style it!

What I Am Wearing 

Trench - Diesel 
Jumpsuit - Forever 21
Shoes - Office
Hat - Superdry
Bag - Mulberry

I love to mix styles because I can never decide on one! I mixed the trench with a high neck line jumpsuit, which is a tracksuit kind of style. Underneath the jumpsuit, however you can't see in the picture, I wore a plain white long sleeved crop top. I then paired the look with my chunky black boots 
to give it that edge and topped it off with my hat because it was freezing and the grey tied in with the jumpsuit!

A few tips if your small like me!

1) Wear a shoe with a heel. This doesn't mean wear 6 inch heels I just mean wear something which slightly boosts you up and makes your legs appear a little longer! I never wear flats with my trench unless I do the 'trainer' look and go overly edgy with it!

2) Get the right length and fit. This is a personal preference to your style but for me it was important to find a coat which wasn't too long that it looked like I had my dads coat on but long enough to really nail the style. I also think it is important to pay attention to the top half make sure it looks right on your shoulders! Even if it is over sized it should fit your shoulders well! That is the difference between stylish and like I said 'I borrowed my dads coat'!

Have you tried this style? If so how do you wear it?

Speak soon!
