Oversized, exaggerated silhouettes, especially in the form of cocoon coats, have been a big trend this season (pardon the pun). However, I've been trying my hardest to avoid investing in warm coats because now that I'm a Southern California resident, I need to focus more energy (read: money) on my summer and spring wardrobe as cold days are few and far between (sigh). But aha! This vintage Gucci jacket, which was handed down to me from my great aunt, proves to stand the test of time. (Or should I say it has indeed surpassed the tyranny of trends.) Although this jacket was surely not purchased for its size, I'm happy to report that it is -- after likely more than four decades -- so definitely on trend.
