If there’s one thing I love (almost) as much as my dog, it’s a good statement coat. My friend Elle gave me this coat last year for Christmas and I fell in love with it at first sight. It’s unimaginably fuzzy, warm, and makes me look somewhat similar to a chic polar bear; i.e. the perfect trifecta. When my professor told us that our next assignment was to dress up as a fashion influencer, I wanted to go beyond my regular rotation of jeans and tops to create something fun and slightly over-the-top.
For this look i was inspired by a picture of a marshmallow. Just kidding. I was inspired by a picture I saw on Pinterest of an influencer during fashion week belting an oversized fluffy coat and pairing it with boots. To avoid looking TOO much like a marshmallow, I decided to forgo pants and wear a nude colored dress under the coat. I paired with some red suede boots for color, round sunglasses for a “je ne sais quoi” look, and a sparkly mini bag because no over-the-top outfit is complete without sparkles. To cinch my waist, I wrapped a thick belt around the coat and even created a belted look around my neck by folding up the collar and putting a chained necklace around the coat collar.
