Trend / Oversized coats

It's not surprising that after trends like the boyfriend jean and boyfriend blazer, outerwear would be the next piece ladies are gonna steal from the boys. This year, designers decided to supersize the coats too.

Neutral tones, subtle collars, exaggerated shoulders, below-the-knee lengths, stiff structured fabrics are their main characteristics. Creating a sometimes vintage-meets-boyish silhouette the oversized coats are comfortable (especially when you're trying to fit them with other layers) and timeless pieces wearing again again.

Although being excessive on their own, the challenge for us is to create a feminine shape. Proportion is the key!! Make sure to balance the look with a pair of skinny pants or a slim-fitting dress and a waist belt maybe. Contrast volume with slim line structure in a stylish pairing of opposites.

Personally I love this trend and all the subtle drama and modern elegance it appeals. You'll definitely make a fashion statement wearing one of them.
