Oversized coats are trending right now including capes and all kinds of colorful and stylish outerwear. Living in Minnesota, a state that is known for its long winter months, winter coats are essential and having multiple coats or a closet dedicated to winter accessories is no big deal. For me though, previously, I never really thought much of winter coats as statement pieces. I only bought coats in neutral colors; black, brown, grey, beige and occasional red. Right now, I have started adding some diversity to my winter coats collection and I recently added some trenches and coats in colorful hues. This oversized trench coat which I nicknamed "Grandma's trench" was a recent addition too and I really love the color. The temperature was in the thirties today and the weather felt very great so, it was the right weather for a trench coat.
The grey denim pants are a work in progress. I dug them out of the pile of clothes that I had put together for donation. They are pretty old and worn but since distressed jeans are trending right now, I decided to do some DIY on it and I'm not done yet. First of all, I loosened the hem as they had gone very short; then I took the nail file to them to create the distressed patches. I did not want to use bleach. I'll reserve that technique for another pair that I would be working on next. Have you ever done any DIY on denim that you would like to share? Do leave me some much needed tips in the comment section below.
