STYLE GURU STYLE: Oversized Everything

March 6th, 2015 at 2:00am

Max Mara’s fall 2015 ready-to-wear line was filled with pieces that would have one looking very chic yet warm during the cold fall and winter months. The collection was a spectrum of browns, grays and blues paired perfectly with different patterns and materials. Between the colors and patterns, Max Mara sent cohesive classic looks down the runway. Oversized coats lined with furs and cable knit sweaters inspired me to put forth effort in my wardrobe, despite the snow blizzard appearing outside my room.

Inspired by a silk quilted patterned coat that was lined with fur I decided to wear my Michael Kors puffer coat. The coat has a fur collar that cause for warmth and protection from the heavy winds. Next I put on a pair of knitted navy blue leggings. These leggings are very thick and lined with a fleece-like material. I also like how they complement my body shape. I threw on a gray T-shirt with an oversized gray knit cardigan for added layers. I find that it is always good to have a short sleeve top when layering, so when you come out of harsh winter conditions into a heated room one may get back comfortable. Finally I topped everything off with a pair of black over-the-knee boots.

Max Mara’s fall 2015 ready to wear collection really showed me that being chic and warm is possible. Although my look was more casual, I definitely plan creating more looks based on this collection.

Get My Look: 1. An oversized puffer coat. 2. Black over-the-knee riding boots. 3. Knit cardigan sweater.
