Wrap yourself in warmth and style.

Cocoon coats are comfortable and cozy and cover you up. The coat is making its mark in outerwear, as anything extra-large is extra-stylish this season. Designers such as Narciso Rodriguez debuted boxy coats for winter in a variety of lengths, styles and fabrics, including fur.

Don’t be afraid of volume when donning a cocoon coat. If draped and fitted correctly, the ample shape can actually showcase a small figure rather fashionably. The roomy outerwear looks best when paired with tapered trousers, skinny jeans or tights.
