No winter wardrobe is complete without a stylish winter coat. Here are some style tips to help you find the best winter coat for your shape.
The diamond shape: If you need to cleverly camouflage your midriff go for a feminine and shaped style. Because you have great legs, choose a knee length coat or just above the knee length. A deep V neckline will draw attention to your top and distract attention from the tummy area. Wearing your coat open will help to elongate your figure, making you look taller and slimmer.
The pear shape will look beautiful in a coat that is fitted or belted at the waist. Wear a knee length coat with heels to balance your proportions and elongate your figure. Interesting details on the shoulder line, pleats, shoulder pads, fur, and buttons will broaden your shoulders, making your hips look slimmer. Avoid lengths that finish at your hips. Accessorise your coat with a brooch or a bright coloured scarf to add interest to the look and draw the attention upwards.
The full hourglass figure will look great in a fitted and tailored style. The coat has to be well fitted at the waist (or use a belt to create that illusion). If you are tall the length should be just above or anywhere below your knee.
If you have a full bust you will always look great in an open neckline such as a V-neckline and lightweight material. Avoid double breasted coats.
Someone with a petite figure has to choose the correct length, which is above the knee, and a straight style. Petite women should never wear a coat with flat shoes. If you love wearing flats, then stick to warm jackets.
The best coat to flatter a boyish figure is a tailored style that is fitted at the waist and flares out at the hips. Use accessories such as belts to create the illusion of a waist. Interesting details such as pockets, buttons or pleats are great to create curves in the right places.
