Lately, I’ve been digging long jackets. I wouldn’t have bought them in the past but I think I’ve found a way to wear them without making my body look shorter than it already is.
River Island jacket – Urban Outfitters bag & belt- Vagabond shoes
Whenever I see a Japanese tourist with oversized long coats, I simply do not understand how they can rock that coat without feeling buried in it. It seems that they can wear anything they want and make it work.
I’ve decided to channel my inner Japanese tourist (I’m Chinese though) and rock anything that comes in my way starting with the long tartan coat. The coat is from the Rihanna collection of River Island. I spotted while window shopping and actually ended up buying it on sale! It really looked weird at first. Eventually I just switched my All Stars with some heels, added a waist belt and I magically looked 5 inches taller.
This is the magic of optical illusion people and I am loving it!
