Small is good, Oversize is cool! That's what designers must have thought for this F/W season. Oversized shapes, broad shoulders and large lenghts that wrap the body as warm and soft blankets, thought for women who love to feel comfortable with garments with simple, rational and strict shapes.

I don't dislike oversize style: it reminds me when, in childhood, I used to play to be an adult, wearing my mother's clothes. I think is good for daywear.
Comfy and practical, is perfect for those days when we feel subdued and we don't feel like dressing up too.
Brands like Jil Sanders, Gianfranco Ferré, Chanel and Chloé proposed oversize style as liet motiv of their collections.
