Last winter, the super-sized puffer coat became a street style essential, largely thanks to the mammoth versions Demna Gvasalia sent down the runway at Balenciaga. Now that fall is approaching once again, lighter outerwear is likewise getting the oversized treatment, from roomy trenches and leather moto jackets to silky bombers and military parkas.
The generous proportions tend to give the pieces a borrowed-from-the-boys feel, which can look cool played up with trousers and sneakers, or juxtaposed with a feminine dress (like, say, one of these Millennial Pink numbers from Reformation). And when it gets really chilly, there's ample room for layering a hoodie underneath—a move we particularly like for tamping down the corporate vibe of a tweed or pinstripe blazer.
