This trend can be excessive so make sure to balance the look with a pair of skinny pants or a slim-fitting dress. Proportion is key, otherwise you can look fat and frumpy. Here are a few great over sized coats we thought would be great for women women over 40.
|Mustard Must Have!It’s a Weekend Max Mara double breasted wool coat with slouchy styling. Love the epaulets which are spot on with the current military trend and make your shoulders look broad and the rest of you thin. Often you need some kind of detail up top to balance your body,so you don’t end up looking like you are wearing a barrel. (Buy it now from Nordstrom)
|Red Alert!Leave it to Jill Sander to produce this simple yet stunningly elegant wool over sized coat with braclet sleeves, side slash pockets and notched lapels. It’s very 50′s inspired chic- ladylike perfection. The wide collar balances things out so you don’t look swamped in fabric, Hells help too. (Get yours now before it goes, from Saks.)
|Blue Beauty!This strand collar A-Line coat from Ellen Tracy also has a swingy retro inspired shape. This is the perfect car coat for Fall 2012 and cobalt blue is so “in” at the moment.(Nordstrom has this in stock NOW)|
|In the trenchesLove this twist. It’s called the Elanor Coat from Diane Von Furstenberg and what it is is a cross between a trench and one of these new full coats. To top it off, it is in one of the season’s hottest hues – Teal. This is not only a voluminous coat but a long coat. It would not be the best choice for a petite figure. (Available for a limited time at Saks)|
