There is nothing that I love more than a great statement coat. Ok maybe pizza… and my mom… and maybe sleeping in but statement coats are high on the list! The winter can be brutal but that doesn’t mean fashion has to suffer! If you know me then you that I LOVE fall/winter fashion especially coats. I just think it takes the thought out of any outfit. If I sound like a broken record then it can only mean it’s true! Statement coats in particular are just that. Coats that make a statement. Turn heads! They are bold, daring and wearing them means you take chances. Isn’t that what fashion is all about?
I saw this coat on the actual Elvi website and fell in love. Elvi if you didn’t know is another plus size brand and I’m obsessed with their clothes! Well the problem is that the shipping is crazy!! I didn’t think I wanted to pay that much in just shipping costs. Be still my heart when I saw this coat on my beloved ASOS! Free shipping baby! Needless to say I purchased right away because my wardrobe needed it! I loved the subtle colors in the striped pattern and thought it would look perfect over a monochromatic outfit.
This skirt makes a statement of her own by the way! I love metallics. The versatility of this skirt is endless. You can definitely dress it up or down. Don’t let the shiny fool or scare you. Be bold! I think the material and pattern of the coat mixed with the leather of boots makes the skirt less intimidating.
