We can’t think of a better staple for this fall season than a chic oversized grey coat. Thrown over any outfit, it will take you from day into evening or from office to date night. The key word when styling your grey coat is effortless. Everything should be in line with a “thrown together, put together” attitude. There are three ways to achieve the look:
1. Make your look monochromatic.
Whether your baseline is a black sweater and black skinny pants or a boxy t-shirt and nude slacks, keep it monochromatic to really emphasize the grey color, which speaks for itself in an understated, chic way.
2. If you want to make a statement, do it with a pop of color.
Go for a pop of color in your bag or shoes, channeling the ever-so-chic Olivia Palermo and Candice Swanepoel, creating a statement color contrast.
3. Keep accessories to a minimum.
Modernist minimalism is all about sharp tailoring and delicate jewelry (if any). A sleek grey tote, a ladylike neutral pump, and maybe a watch will do it.
One more perk of an oversized grey coat is that it pairs well with any style, it’s just a matter of how you put it together. Feeling ladylike? Go for a sleek pump. Edgy? A rough army boot all the way. Casual? Sneakers will do just fine.
