To state the obvious, the days have definitely grown colder and I’m wrapping up warm in denim and faux fur. But because there are so many styles of coats to choose from, I pick three gorgeously cut and cosy wrap-overs from boohoo and find their perfect pairing of jeans so that you can look your best this winter.
I adore the rich plum colour of this Blair Large Shawl Collar Faux Fur Fitted Coat, £50. The central button fastening is ideal for large busted women as it keeps the overall shape slimline with no pulling or bulkiness across the chest. The over-sized faux fur collar will keep you warm and adds a glamorous touch taking you from day to night.
Wear with: Bootcut Jeans.
Since the faux fur collar creates volume and bulk to the top of your frame, bootcut jeans will create slight volume at the bottom of your frame, evening out your silhouette. These CITIZENS OF HUMANITY Amber mid-rise bootcut jeans, £210 are ideal. I find today that bootcut jeans are not as readily available as other styles yet they are my favourite cut. I’m a curvy size 12 and they lengthen my legs, nip me in at the waist and make me look more hourglass.
Animal print is big this season but it’s best to wear one statement piece at a time with these loud prints so as not to look like roadkill! The Boutique Mara Leopard Faux Fur Coat, £70 features a full point collar and full length sleeves with gorgeously glam sparkly buttons.
Wear with: Slim Leg Jeans.
The coat creates a voluminous shape as it is slightly over-sized. Whereas skinny jeans may make you look a little too top heavy, slim leg jeans will keep the focus on the coat whilst showing off long legs for an overall ‘wow’ appeal. I love the MIH JEANS OSLO BLACK SLIM LEG JEANS, MIH JEANS, £154 – ideal for complimenting taller frames while still creating the illusion of a long leg for shorter figures.
For an alternative winter warmer, choose the Georgia Knitted Fur Collar Gilet, £20. With a tie-waist it will show off your figure and look great with a leather biker jacket or brightly coloured knit worn underneath.
Wear With: Skinny Jeans.
The faux fur trim and longer length of the gilet means that anything other than simple skinny jeans could look too fussy and busy. Choose these DONNA KARAN High-rise skinny jeans, £490. The high-rise will keep your look tailored and simplistic beneath an otherwise elaborate overcoat to really show it off.
