Here's How To Style Your Big Fluffy Coat All Fall And Winter Long

While we're in the thick of autumn and winter is soon to arrive, it's time to start preparing for the cold weather. Depending on where you live, you might already be enjoying the crisp autumn weather or wondering when it'll make an appearance in your hometown. Luckily, regardless of the current weather conditions, we have some tips you can use to plan your winter outfits, especially if they involve an oversized, cozy coat. After all, one hot fashion clothing item that fashionistas love wearing during fall and winter is big fluffy coats. After all, they're statement pieces that can dressed up or kept casual.

However, styling a fluffy coat can be intimidating when choosing a base outfit and accessories. Fortunately, since coats cover most of the outfit, finding a balance with your layering pieces allows the coat to be the main character of the 'fit and still lets you show off stunning highlights through pants and tops. That said, playing around with differing shoe shapes and pant widths can help you develop a variety of outfits. Plus, accessorizing with handbags and jewelry adds value to an outfit and ties the whole look together. While you should be styling your base outfit around the coat, don't be afraid to experiment with color and patterns. In other words, get creative with your looks and always try to go all out.

Pair fluffy coats with neutral feminine tops

Not all tops have to be colorful and dressy when styling them with oversized fluffy coats. Neutral tops can be an excellent addition to make the outfit look cohesive and chic. Opt for neutral feminine tops with minimal soft details like ruffles on the sleeves that will peek through the coat or tops with a v-neck that is loose-fitting and gives a drapey look. On the other hand, you can also wear your coat with a turtleneck; they're simple but make the perfect warm layering piece.

Stick to a loose pair of jeans

Fluffy coats are wider all around, so they're best paired with loose jeans, either wide-leg or straight-leg, to give a balanced look. Pairing them with skinny jeans will make the coat look too big as if you're swimming in it. Loose jeans, on the other hand, give more shape to the outfit. That said, don't be afraid to mix between flare and bootcut styles to make your legs appear longer. They're a simple way to elevate your 'fit.

Opt for trousers

Styling your fluffy coat with trousers is a superb alternative to jeans and sweats. They're excellent for making an outfit look luxe while keeping you comfortable. They're also wide enough to pair with square-toed boots or heels and give you a balanced look. On the other hand, you can also style them with your favorite sneakers for a more casual outfit. Have fun with this style by keeping the base and coat a single color, and add pops of color with a beanie and scarf.

Wear dainty jewelry pieces

When you wear more extravagant clothing, like a big fluffy coat, you want it to be the attention grabber. In other words, everything else should complement the coat and help enhance the overall look. That said, everything else should still be minimal, especially jewelry. This can be done by choosing small earrings and dainty necklaces or skipping the necklace and wearing a stylish pair of sunglasses. Instead of wearing both a watch and rings, choose one over the other. The small details will make a difference but won't overpower the coat.

Wear matching sweats for a cozy look

On cold days when all you want to wear is a sweatsuit but still have errands to run, throw your fluffy coat over your sweatpants and sweatshirt. It's the perfect way to elevate a mundane sweatsuit and give you the ultimate cozy look. Pair the 'fit with UGG mini boots and a beanie for extra warmth. This way, instead of looking like you rolled out of bed, you'll feel comfortable and luxurious. You can also wear contrasting colors with a colorful sweatsuit and neutral coat or keep it neutral from head to toe.

Swap your pants for a skirt or minidress

If you're living through a warmer fall but are ready to bring out your fluffy coat, style it with a miniskirt or minidress. Choose from satin, leather, or denim materials to create various outfits. This way, you won't overheat or feel too cold throughout the day. Pair the outfit with knee-high boots in a contrasting color, or wear high heels to give the illusion of longer legs. For an elegant appeal, layer them with tights. However, keep the miniskirt or minidress in neutral colors for a balanced and polished look.

Fluffy coats with square-toed shoes

Fluffy coats are soft and cozy, so you want to give them structure and contrast with your shoes. Style your coat with square-toed shoes for a sophisticated and stylish outfit. From boots to flats to heels, they can add hardness to any fluffy coat. In addition, they're highly versatile, so you can pair them with any base outfit. They particularly work incredibly with looser jeans. After all, they'll sit just on top of the shoe and let the tip and heel peek through, which is all you need when styling them with a fluffy coat.
