For those who live outside of Spain, or simply do not know what Humana is, it’s a foundation that helps promote training and education in other countries. All this by selling textile waste, second-hand clothes. You too can help by donating clothes and buying second hand fashion at Humana.
I chose this men coat (one of my secrets is that I buy a lot in the men section) is a fairly classic and masculine coat and with just a few stitches and some ribbon I customized without losing its essence in a coat XXL. Now I have a trendy coat yet unique, and it only cost me 20 € !
We all know it, it’s always the same… Spring comes with a very changeable weather, and when we’re pretty sure it will only be sun and warmth, heavy rains begins and disrupt our mindset… For me, is the same every year. So we have to pull the coats out again… (BlaH!)
But this time it’s different! Let’s get inspired by these great XXL coats, most known as Boyfriend coats or oversize coats.
In this post you can see different styles, with different looks… For you to get inspired for the next DIY post. Yeah! It’s about DIY oversize coat! So don’t miss it! It’s a collaboration together with HUMANA and their campaign Donate Fashion were I’m one of the collaborating bloggers from Spain. Don’t miss their site!

When I think of the styles in fashion that were used years ago and now are coming back again, the clothes of our grandmothers and our mothers that now come back as a super MUST, it’s amazing how fashion repeats. In particular I’ve always liked this, the Ruana. Very In years ago, and now is coming back. It’s a kind of a poncho-shawl that we can use over our coats or directly on our clothes to keep warm… It’s a very simple piece that adds a special touch to create a chic look. If you are always freezing like me, this is your style-DIY-solution! This DIYRuana is very easy to make, and it can also be for a special gift.
Another garment in my closet that needed urgent updating… And I’ve been in love with the look of the sleeves with studs. So let’s get to work! Here I show you how easy it is to update your coat, and you don’t need to know how to sew.
Your coat also suffers from dullness and outdatedness? The studs are a good alternative!
