Best Trends Forever – Oversized Coats

oversized coats

The oversized coat is making an appropriately-sized comeback and we couldn’t be happier. We think it’s such a fun and stylish trend and we found some great tips for styling them. See what Shape Magazine‘s Tara Blumenthal suggests for making this trend workThese were our favorite of Tara’s tips!

• Keep the rest of your outfit FITTED.

• Give yourself a lift, a.k.a. WEAR HEELS.

• Show some skin.

We did a little fantasy shopping at and found these great oversized coats. Would you put one of these in your ONE STOP SHOPPING closet this week?

We want you to build a 5 PIECE winter look FROM A SINGLE RETAILER that includes a wool coat. Be sure to put something under $50 in your closet. The TOP 3 FINALISTS will get to choose something under $50 as their prize. Some of these coats would be great for your closet!
