Choose a trench that is classic in shape (longer with narrow shoulders that A-lines a bit out to the hem) and color (tan, beige, or black). Pick one that drapes over your body and perfectly frames both you and your inevitably cute outfit.
The idea of this coat is to be intentionally oversized, so it will fit seamlessly over anything from a formal dress to chunky sweaters and blazers. Stick with a neutral color, like black, and skip any piece that has too many distracting pockets, buttons, seams, or ties.
In order to really celebrate its glory, the faux fur chubby should be unapologetically full and fluffy. Whether you go for a cropped version or a longer style, it should purely be a fashion choice—which is the right pick for every body type.
A peacoat is timeless, versatile, and easy to wear. Again, go for a jacket that is narrower in the shoulders and fuller in the body, that way when it’s buttoned up it will create a smaller, more structured proportion. Ideally, your peacoat’s hem should hit anywhere from your waist to your hip.
