Welcome to Extremes, a series examining the outer edges of style.

Most extreme fashion trends never make the leap from the runways to the subway platform. But here’s one that sits at the happy place between practical and cool: Big outerwear. Massive down puffers and sweeping wool overcoats were everywhere last Fashion Week, and they’re exactly what you need when the temperature takes a nosedive. It might still feel summery out there, but now’s the time to buy, before winter panic sets in. Scroll ahead to shop our favorites at every budget.
