Elevate your fall fashion with a darling plaid wrap coat


I guess it is safe to say that cooler weather is here to stay on the east coast! After being inspired by Jean from Extra Petite to buy this beautiful plaid wrap coat from Chic Wish, I feel in love. The colors are perfect for fall and it is perfect for layering. For layering purposes, I chose to pair this look with my favorite gray turtle neck that I got from Forever 21. The best part? The coat has pockets and it is sure to flatter all body types thanks to the belt it comes with.

Details on the coat

This is a coat runs true to size but I do want to warn you not to panic when it comes time to order it. I am wearing it in a size S although I would size down to XS. In the interest of transparency, this is the only piece that I have bought from Chic Wish. I am still getting to know more about the company as far as their products are concerned. If you are in the same boat, take extra caution by ensuring that a product has several reviews before you commit to purchasing anything.

More inspiration for fall

Finding flattering coat for a petite framed woman is much easier than you might think. One of my faovrites is this jacket from J.Crew is currently one of my new favorite items. Trench coats are also very flattering for petites. You can find inspiration from one of my posts here. And when all else fails, you can always opts for a vegan leather jacket. One of my favorite ones has been review here.

Be sure to also check out my favorite farms and wineries to go to  in New Jersey and New York here. When it comes to autumm, I am a bit biased. Fall is pretty magical out here on the east coast. 😘🍁
