Its a bold look to try right now, but think sleek, sexy and powerful...hone that caped crusader within because this trend isn't about hiding (although it does offer good camouflage), and remember to keep things proportioned, try it with slim pants, skinny jeans, tights or a pencil skirt to balance the volume.
PS keep an eye out for an extension of this trend in the shape of the Box silhouette and batwing sleeve.
