We’ve had a pretty cute fall when it comes to weather. I’ve absolutely loved rocking my cropped leather jacket or an oversized sweatshirt far into November. But I’m sure you’ve noticed the temps have been dropping lower and lower. Yup our little Indian summer is O-V-A.

Today’s 40-degree temps are far from fun. But as we all prep for holiday parties and all the lovely outdoor voyaging that the winter months bring, remember you can totally stay warm and still stay cute at the same time.

In line with the seasons oversized overcoat trend and textured fabrics, I’m rocking one of my absolute favorite designers, Diane Von Furstenberg. No one understands us curvy girls quite like the queen of the wrap dress. This absolutely fabulous #Off5thFind is-- yup you guessed it--straight off the floor at NYC’s newest Saks OFF 5th. [Have you gone yet? If not stop punishing yourself!]

When it comes to finding a coat that hugs the curves without looking too tight, the hunt is so real! But this season, bigger is better. The oversized coat trend is super stylish but it can be a bit daunting for a woman who still wants to define her waistline. That’s why I picked this coat up in a size extra large, so I’d have an oversized look. But since Mrs. DVF has a thing for cinching a waist, of course she belted this fabulous faux fur wrap coat. And even if you choose not to rock the belt the dramatic draping created by the oversized shawl collar creates a defined silhouette.

While clocking coats for my winter wardrobe, I wanted to make sure that I got something fun and bold. Picking a coat with a bold print plus a bit of texture was the goal. Add that to the plush wool blend and the luxurious leather piping, and I was sold. You can pick up this beauty at your local Saks Off 5th. This plus some of your other favorite designer items are up to 85% off today. Plus use code SHIP4FREE to receive free shipping on orders through the entire week. Find out more here.
