Trench Coats Are Cool & All, But They're Way Better Oversized

Oversized puffers, sweaters, blazers, even pants, are purposely being made two or three sizes too big. After the long reign of "skinny" everything (jeans, leggings, the works), we're ushering in a new, very baggy, reign. And while we hold a special place in our hearts for all things supersized, we never considered that would translate to our trench coats. But it seems that big sleeves, drapey fits, and extra-long hemlines all combine to make one hell of a fall jacket.
And it's not just about looks. Oversized trench coats are seriously practical. Stuck in the rain? Need more pocket space? Want a coat that's light but also perfect for layering? These XL styles have it. Not to mention that by supersizing these coats, you can now essentially wear anything out the door and no one will know. (Bring on the all-day loungewear!)
If you're still not convinced that bigger is better, take a look at the 15 styles ahead. When it comes to coats this season, more is definitely more.
