What can be more stylish than an oversized coat for a chilly fall day?
I kind of fancy oversized coats for a long time. It wasn’t so popular and in the center of attention when I bought my first Zara oversized black coat. It didn’t last long until I bought the second one(this time in dark yellow)! I had a crush on bulky clothes since forever and this chemistry seems to intensify over time! The streetstyle is practically studded with such pieces and there is no wonder why the fashion gurus love them so much! After Balenciaga, Dries Van Noten, La Garçonne and many other brands started focusing on designing such outerwear items, everyone loves and wears them.
