Beat Winter At It’s Own Game: Volume I

 Alright, time for some honesty: We just exited the holiday season and yes, I ate all of the cookies, indulged on eggnog and what have you, and consequently have become what I would call ‘festively plump’ and I know I am not alone. That doesn’t mean I am fat or any of us are, it just means that our skinny trousers perhaps are a tad too skinny for comfort and lets just say you won’t see me in a body-con dress tomorrow.

That being said, I offer you two outfit tricks that will help you navigate this festive time of year, no diets necessary (time seems to take care of these things anyway.)

1.) Wide-leg Trousers: Not only is this an incredibly popular trend of the moment but wide leg pants are notorious for being quite forgiving and not to mention comfortable. Wear them in a pop of color or a heavy textured fabric then add a chunky heel for a long dramatic look. Give yourself a little extra breathing room while embracing the chic wide-leg trouser.

2. The Draped Coat: You have seen this everywhere, apparently no one’s arms want to be bound by a coat any longer! This is good news for you and I is a draped coat gives you a clean structured shoulder line, a tapered, covered silhouette in the front while leaving you plenty of extra room if needed. This is also a fantastic option when layering a favorite coat over an unreasonably chunky sweater. Not only is this trend chic while providing structure, it also allows you to feel unrestricted and comfortable while covering areas you would like to keep covered in the winter months.

Whether or not you are like me and need some extra forgiveness in your wardrobe this time of year both of these trends are here to stay, so try them out and embrace being cozy, chic and fabulous. Happy Tuesday! Get outfit details below.
