From the sight of Mary-Kate Olsen, all swaddled in a sheerling lined trench, I would say she is trying to usher in the cold season. Well, she is looking pretty stylish and I am liking the look of this bulky coat, which works well on her petite frame.
This oversized fluffy coat isn’t for everyone, so I found a few universally-stylish outerwear garments.

- If your are petite (5’3 and under), look for shorter versions of your favorite style of coat.
- If you are plus-size, opt for single-breast styles and avoid excess bulk if you have a little extra padding of your own.
- If you are tall, select longer coats and avoid three-quarter length sleeves.
