- Find a coat with shoulder pads to balance the wider bottom, or add shoulder pads yourself.
- Look for fabrics that are soft and not stiff.
- Slim jeans, leggings, or a knee length pencil skirt work well on the bottom.
- Finish it off with tall boots to provide a solid base.
Remember that you don’t have to buy into every trend that comes along. If this one appeals to you and your sense of flair, then try it out for a change of pace. If it doesn’t, just leave it in store.
