Miroslava Proves Petite Ladies Can Rock A Sandwich-Board Cape

When it comes to petite style, there's a fine line between an oversized silhouette and something that swallows you whole. Tailoring helps, and so does a little clever inspiration courtesy of one of the most fearless fashion personalities we know. One who stands tall at only five feet: Miroslava Duma.
The Buro 24/7 creator has been a staple at the couture shows over the past few days, as she is at most Fashion Weeks around the globe. And, just as ubiquitous were her large-proportioned capes. We've seen at least three different versions on Duma so far, with varying lengths and widths. But, while a massive overcoat like this may be dominating for a runway model, these actually look right at home on Mira's diminutive frame.
The trick comes down to how she wears the sleeveless, cocoon-like tops. Ahead, three examples that may just convince you to embrace oversized in a big way.
