The Cocoon Coat: Your New Best Friend

By  |  0 Comments

If you love to look chic, and you love to feel comfortable, then we have a wardrobe question for you—ever hear of a cocoon coat? Just like the oh-so-well-named garment suggest, the cocoon coat is where style and coziness wonderfully intersect (and how often does that happen? Not very often). With the myriad of layers you’ll undoubtedly be sporting (let’s see: thermals, long-sleeved tees, sweaters, sweatshirts, scarves, etc.), wouldn’t it be so much easier (and less horrifically bulky) if your coat effortlessly glided over your outfit with no feelings of corset-like constriction? We think so, too.

Designed to look like you plucked your father’s favorite coat, the cocoon coat was made to be roomy (like cocooning yourself in your fave blanket—hence the name), but never sacrificing on style. This is probably why it is such a go-to among the fictitious and the famous (from Olivia Pope to Kim Kardashian-West). Olivia, sticking to neutrals like ivory and dove gray (like these ones from NastyGal and Vince, respectively), proves that something so oversized does not equal sloppy or slovenly—but actually quite the opposite.

Kim K, pairing her love for the cocoon coat with everything from all-white ensembles, to jeans and t-shirts, to fancy nights out with hubby Kanye West, showcases just how versatile (and, thus, indispensible) one simple cocoon coat can be in your outerwear wardrobe. Take a cue from Kim and opt for a boldly hued version (like this fiery orange pick from Monki),
