|Kim Kardashian in Max Mara Oversized Coat|
|ASOS Oversized Coat|
I've always had a penchant for this style of long length, oversized coat, but felt my 5ft 4.5in (can’t forget the half) height didn't really lend too well to this kind of design, so when I saw my celebrity style crush, Miss Kim Kardashian, who is reportedly 5ft 2in, sporting this camel coloured Max Mara coat I thought, well why not give it a try, after all, oversized menswear-style coats are among some of the biggest fashion trends this season so that's an added bonus in one respect. So, I surfed the web until I stumbled across a somewhat similar one on ASOS, at a fraction of the price of course, the rest, as they say, is history……..
Some people would say, “get your own style instead of copying others”, to which I’d respond, “get a life!”. If you like something and feel it would suit you, you should buy it (if it’s within your means of course), regardless of who has worn a similar style or garment before you. Isn't that how catwalk fashion works? It’s about inspiration, it’s just I feel I relate better to Kim’s fashion and style rather than that of the catwalk supermodels. Interestingly, her outfit in the last photo featured on worst dressed lists, but personally I think it’s a great casual get-up; the coat works just as well with a chic dress and heels as shown in the first photo.
I complemented my ASOS camel coat with my Kurt Geiger animal print booties, and of course my new Anya Hindmarch tote.
