It's too warm for a coat but too chilly to go without, what are you wearing?

I struggle with this. I can't wear hoodies or short blazer style jackets as i'm very top heavy (big boobs). Same with 'chunky knits'. I'm sick of my skinny long line cardi's.

I keep eyeing up cape/poncho things, but with my shape i'll look like ... something round with stick legs. A toffee apple!

I need inspiration.

Currently mainly wearing a navy double breasted jacket (reefer) or knee length oxblood leather coat.

I've got big boobs too I don't do ponchos.

My AllSaints Cargo leather jacket, which is very fitted, over a t shirt. I'm quite top heavy too but this looks ok as there aren't too many layers.

Coatigan or biker jacket. I’ve got a couple of very thin leather jackets from muubaa and zara which don’t add too much bulk over thicker jumpers. Big scarf over the bikers when it gets a bit colder

I have two lovely coatigans... I'm small and round and they aren't too bulky I wear them with nice scarf and they do the job

Thin leather is a good idea. Less bulk.

I tried on a coatigan in Marks today - really liked it on the hanger but it looked odd on me. This one.

Lovely and soft, but it hung weirdly on me.

Poncho or a very large knitted circular scarf
