Size Matters: High fashion goes big with this season’s outerwear

When fall/winter runway looks hit Fashion Week this year, layers, top-to-bottom leather, texture-rich fabrics and ’80s-era styles reigned supreme.

Oversize coats such as Balenciaga’s bright-red layering faux fur coat gets larger-than-life treatment, while Versace is all about power shoulders reframing body shapes, proving that the working woman’s wardrobe of the ’80s still means business.

Speaking of shoulders, Miuccia Prada did not shrug from the challenge, paying homage to the decade of affluence with a Miu Miu leather trench that unapologetically takes up a whole lot space.

Meanwhile, shearling is showing up on almost every fashion house’s outerwear collection, including Proenza Schouler and Dior, where it provides the final texture to a carefully curated, multilayer ensemble.

Whatever coat or jacket you slip on this season, remember to supersize it. Fortune — and fashion — favors the bold.
