How many days a week are you tempted to leave the house in a hoodie and a blanket? If you live in a place like New York City where temperatures are hovering around 40ºF right now, the answer is probably every day. Well, as it turns out, that very same look just got the stamp of approval from everyone's favorite French fashion editor: Carine Roitfeld.
Photographed in NYC, the Parisian icon wore an oversize coat with a hoodie, leggings, and flat boots. We've talked about the oversize outerwear trend this season, but Roitfeld's extra-plush coat definitely solidifies the case for a bigger-is-better mentality. (And her look also sparks some personal FOMO as I sit in a chilly air-conditioned office right now.) Not to mention her lug-sole boots are the ultimate fail-safe winter shoe choice if practicality is your main priority. Scroll down to see how the French fashion editor wears the trend and shop billowy coats for yourself.

Erin got her start as a Who What Wear intern over 12 years ago—back when the site only published a single story per day. (Who What Wear has since increased that number twentyfold.) She graduated magna cum laude from USC, which is how she ended up moving to Los Angeles from her hometown of San Diego. In college, she also interned at Refinery29, where she was promoted to editorial assistant and then assistant editor. After nearly three years at R29, she came back to WWW in 2016, where she currently holds the title of senior news editor (as well as the unofficial title of resident royal expert—in case you haven't noticed her numerous Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton stories). She spends her days trying to incorporate her idols, Anna Wintour and Roger Federer, into as many stories as possible. Outside of work, she loves tennis, classic rock, traveling, and smothering her dog with affection.
