STYLEDETAILS-COATSANDSWEATERSNothing new here, but a definite trend this winter is chunky sweaters and turtlenecks with an oversized coat.  All I want to think about is Spring lately, but we all know (at least for most of the country) that Spring is far far away. Most of our days will be cold, wet or snowy. I know it’s a little depressing to think about.

One of my favorite combos as of late, is my GAP sweater and an oversized coat.  Being, as my mom likes to call it, petite, this trend can be a little tricky for a small frame.  If there are other petite (short) girls out there, my suggestion is invest in tailoring. This, again, is something I learned from my momma. She is petite like me and also worked in retail during my childhood, so making trips to the tailor were totally normal at our house. Ever since she bought me my first pair of designer jeans the tailor has become my best friend.  For any petite friends out there, if you want to wear an oversized coat without looking like your wearing your dad’s jacket, I suggest getting the arms shortened, taken in a bit and hem the bottom of the coat to hit you at your best spot.
