Big Coats, Ain’t Nobody Got Space for That

So apparently oversized coats that make you look like you have a shrunken head, or Baymax from Big Hero 6, are in right now.

They’re big, they’re long, and if you’re wearing one I’m definitely not down to get the friction on because they look absolutely ridiculous and really have no business being worn unless it’s snowing – I guess.

Not only are thick, puffy coats in but excessive coat layering is also sure to be a mainstay this season.

However, my question is A. where do you store such items because my tiny closet can barely fit my summer-wear, and B. how are you moving around in the crowded clubs, transit, and streets?

I’ll start off by saying, I might be biased or may be missing some crucial element of this trend because I live in Southern California which is obviously not the ideal place for these to be worn.

Honestly, I can’t help but feel baffled when I see them being sold in nearly every store.

While the options available on the racks aren’t quite as dramatic as those featured on runways, I still feel like they’re still just doing way too much.

Did we learn nothing from how silly we all looked in those puffer jackets from the early 2000’s?

This look doesn’t even flatter the traditional model body like many of the more questionable runway pieces we’ve seen over the years. Whether you have an average body, a slim figure, or are plus size, pretty much no one looks great in these coats.

I blame this on the wide, often squared shapes, unnecessary extra volume around the shoulders, and lengths that cut you in just the wrong place.

For those of you who insist on wearing these big ass coats or your three coats that triple your size because fashion, can you at least try a modified version so we can all cross the street at the same time instead of ricochet off your jacket into the way of traffic.

If I have to unnaturally maneuver around you because of your jacket, it’s too big for you bro.

Now I’m not a stylist so maybe I’m just not getting the vision or fit of these garments but I feel like there’s a better way we could all stay warm this season.

Here’s my take on how to make the oversize coat trend work if you must indulge:

In conclusion, my personal opinion on oversized, overly puffy, quadruple-layered coat wearing is this – unless you’re Inspector Gadget or two children standing on top of one another – maybe skip it this season.
