Belted coat

Do you love a big coat, but don't love how it's so shapeless? You're not alone, but Vazquez has a simple solution: Add a belt. Go for a waist-cinching belt with gold hardware to give your outfit some structure.

Puffer coat

A warm, puffy coat will certainly keep you warm, but sometimes they're so big you can feel like a marshmallow in it. To avoid that feeling, it's simple. Just look at the details of the coat. Vazquez recommends going for one with quilting that's in a diamond shape to create a natural, slim look.
