Winter is here so wrap up warm with our roundup of the best oversized coats.
This winter, take style notes from the likes of Jil Sander and Louis Vuitton’s AW12 collections and invest in an oversized coat. There are an abundance of shapes and styles to choose from whether it’s borrowing from the boy’s with manly tailoring, or recreating a modern 60s look with a classic swing coat.
