Having a good over coat for the fall/winter season is an absolute essential! I recommend buying one that fits with chunky sweaters, this may require you to go a size up. You can definitely play with colors, patterns and what ever color works well for you. Stay away from black!
I may have a slight obsession with boots, but a girl needs nice boooots!!! Over the knee, ankle, mid calf… you can never have too many. A few things to remember when buying boots is comfort, durability & a pointed toe. I am a huge believer in pointed toes elongating the legs. When we wear bulky layers, long legs are a must. Just like every girl needs a mini black dress, a girl needs a pair of nice black boots. Just don’t get too stuck on that color!
When one finds a good chunky sweater, you get it in every single color possible! I lucked out and purchased the best chunky sweaters from HM and ZARA. Which was actually quite surprising to me! I always go a size larger so I could put layers underneath and the sweaters are not too short on me! Get the sweaters in neutral colors and a few accent hues like blue or red!
Layering is an art and don’t let anyone tell you other wise. It took me a while to get a hang of it because i felt like i just made myself look super chunky. The key is to have the layers be various lengths! These staples will help you layer the basics!
P.S. if you haven’t jumped on the bodysuit bandwagon, you should!
