I’ve always been conscious about being comfortable when I dress maybe subconsciously because I did care about what others thought about me or my own body issues I may of had and sometimes still have. I didn’t want to look too curvy or inappropriate. So you will understand my excitement with the ‘relaxed coat’ trend this season because I always feel the most confident in jeans and a T-shirt. Well-tailored coats can be intimidating to me because I feel that I have to wear some couture gown or a tailor-made suit underneath. With this trend I feel like I can wear almost anything underneath and allow my coat to fall on me like a queen. You can still fashion forward yet casual, so I teamed this amazing Zara coat with some ripped denims, a plain tee and basic black heels and let’s be honest we all can find these items in our closet. I added a pop of colour clutch and voila a comfortable, fresh but fashionable autumn/winter look.

Don’t be afraid to mix and match skirts, dresses, jeans, sneakers, scarves or heels with this relaxed coat trend it really is forgiving to all dress styles. Choose bold colours like this camel or the ethereal fluffy pink coats available at Mui Mui or Topshop. You can never go wrong with a coat so get yours ASAP!
