The Cocoon Coat...This style is oversized and relaxed  with a ‘boyfriend’ or slightly androgynous look, although if you go for a tweedy or fluffy version, they take on a more feminine, luxurious feel! I wasn’t so sure I would try this myself at first, but it has grown on me since exploding onto the catwalks last year.

If you’re tall and skinny this is an easy look to carry off, but if you’re anything like the average woman out there you’ll need to take care. This is how to pull it off…

  • Keep tops and trousers or jeans slim fitting and structured to balance the look out.
  • Try layering a fitted sweater over a structured shirt and wear skinny jeans or trousers with heels, or perhaps a pencil skirt instead. Add a statement necklace.
  • Layer over a fitted dress such as a wrap over, body con or fit and flare dress. Add a silk or woolen scarf into the mix to add some texture and interest.
  • For a dressed down look, wear it with a cropped sweater over a strappy vest, boyfriend jeans slightly rolled up and some gorgeous ankle boots!

My final tip is to wear this coat with attitude and confidence. Just go for it!!!
