Trend Alert: Oversized Outerwear

In my Fall/Winter preview post, I mentioned oversized coats and jackets as a big trend (no pun intended!).  Remember, oversized means the coat or jacket is much larger than you.  Since this was a big trend in the 80’s, you might be tempted to visit your local thrift store to see what you can find.  Be very careful, because you really need a classic piece if you want this trend to work with a thrift store find.  Most of the 80’s pieces are too recognizable from that era.  If you’re old enough, it will look like you pulled out your 80’s coat that you never threw away.  This is a really cozy trend, so if you love it, here are some inexpensive ways to add it to your wardrobe.
