The long, oversized coats (the ones that threaten to smother the wearer) have been quite ubiquitous of late. We’ve been seeing the look on celebrities nearly everyday, with familiar people like Kim Kardashian turning this into their staple.
We put together some of the most recent long coat outfits to ask you this question: Who wore it best?
1. Blake Lively

Did you know that a few days ago, the former ‘Gossip Girl’ actress wore 10 different outfits in one day? She probably spent every 2 hours or so changing and getting styled. One of those looks was this Valentino-on-Valentino ensemble. The actress sported a long coat over a dress from the brand’s Fall 2015 collection paired with Christian Louboutin shoes.

2. Kim Kardashian

You probably know by now that the reality star is a huge fan of the oversized outerwear. She loves it so much that it has become her signature look. This time, she draped a Celine Fall 2014 coat over her A.L.C. Fall 2015 brown knit top and A.L.C. Fall 2015 olive pin skirt combo. Kim finished off her look with a pair of Etro beaded suede sandals.
3. Suki Waterhouse

The British model and actress looked effortlessly chic in her Burberry suede trench coat which she wore over a sheer white dress and styled with a pair of Burberry leather lattice peep toe ankle boots. This isn’t the first time Suki sported the long coat look. She has tried it before at the Pre-Oscar Party back in February and the Vanity Fair Barneys New York dinner party.
4. Lily James
