There is something so appealing about the recent love for oversize outerwear. Well, of course, its practical function can't be ignored; winter is no joke, and this style just promises to wrap you up like your favourite blanket. But then there's is the matter of actually appearing that you have, in fact, wrapped yourself in a blanket. It's a lot of material, in most instances, fuzzy, thick fabric – not necessarily flattering. It can easily envelop, particularly petite frames. But yet, there is something so chic and insouciant. The cozy factor just pushes it over the top to something that is worth the risk. Definitely.

Below is a recent segment that I did with The Morning Show that addresses some of my other favourite outerwear options.
