I resisted the urge to start shopping for coats a month or two ago, but now I feel like I need to face the facts. The days are shorter and the mornings can be downright chilly, especially in the shade of tall buildings! Plus, I keep seeing everyone in all of these cute, oversized coats that just look so cozy. I pulled three of my favorite styles and ways to wear them if you need a little help. The shape is classic which makes the coat work in your wardrobe no matter what your personal style happens to be. Usually I tend to gravitate toward all black, but that red coat is calling my name!

How to Wear an Oversize Coat: Be Bright


I love this all black look topped with a bright red coat. The pop of color is perfect for gray days because it’s an instant mood enhancer! If you need a heavier duty winter boot you can easily swap your shoes.

How to Wear Oversized Coats: Prints & Patterns

Coats are the ideal garment for experimental prints and patterns! Keep the color scheme of ensemble similar to allow for a contrast that makes sense. If mixing prints is too much for your everyday, you can easily rock this coat with all your favorite basics.
