Eclectically feminine style by Mary Gui

Oversized Coat with Layered Dainty Necklaces


One of my favorite things about fashion is being able to mix pieces together in unexpected ways. I love the juxtaposition between hard and soft and playing with different styles. This McQ Alexander McQueen oversized coat is a staple in my closet during the Fall and Winter months, and instantly makes any outfit look effortlessly chic. The longer length and oversized fit gives the coat a cool girl vibe, so I like to style it with more feminine and delicate pieces to mix things up. For this look, I paired the coat with dainty necklaces, starting with an art deco gold necklace from Haute Bauble Vintage. Haute Bauble has a great selection of delicate handmade pendant necklaces for layering, as well as curated vintage jewelry pieces (right up my alley!). I paired the pendant necklace with a longer lariat necklace for a cool layered effect.

There’s something so interesting about letting a necklace hang out of a turtleneck, as I think it definitely draws more attention to the jewelry. Paring a gold necklace with a white turtleneck is also a great way to allow the necklace to pop in a classic way. You can find more layered dainty necklaces on the Haute Bauble Vintage website, I would totally layer on more pieces like this and this.


For my outfit, I chose a vintage turtleneck one-piece that is one of my most treasured vintage finds. The set even comes with a matching plaid vest and belt. I’m wearing the belt here but opted out of the vest for this look. I like to take different pieces from the set and mix them with more modern elements. To match the pink details on the coat, I went with my pink ASOS velvet boots, and finished the look with my Chloe Drew bag.


I love the overall effect of this look because it’s warm and stylish at the same time. For colder days, I would just wear a thicker pair of tights and layer on a thick scarf and hat. I also play with lengths in this outfit by contrasting the longer coat with shorts underneath. This is an easy trick to instantly look more stylish. For a long oversized coat, I would definitely recommend wearing heeled shoes if you’re on the shorter side like me.

    Now that’s the sort of coat which stops traffic.

    On the blog today, I’m tackling something literally “borrowed from the boys”, i.e., an item of clothing I took from my husband’s wardrobe. Come on over and see how I (and four other women of all ages) styled pieces we, ahem, borrowed from the men in our lives.
