The Bigger The Better: Wrap Yourself In Fall's Oversized Coat Trend
September 4, 2012
While we’re still trying to hold onto as much summer as we can, fall will inevitably be upon us, and yes, a wooly winter coat is probably the last thing on our minds. But it’s never too early to browse for a potential outerwear staple. This year, designers decided to supersize the coat—creating a vintage-meets-boyish silhouette with dropped shoulders, long lengths, and plenty of room (perfect to fit your layered outfits). Jil Sander created coats that are neutral in tone, with pops of color and subtle collars. On the other hand, Chanel dramatized the garment with exaggerated shoulders and below-the-knee lengths, and Stella McCartney played with details, such as stand-out lapels and accentuated hips.
