With Autumn soon coming to an end and the colder months creeping up on us, finding the perfect winter coat should be on the top of your list. The thing is- there's always so many choices. Which one is best for my body type? How can I accentuate my assets? The main things that you want to look for in a winter coat are function and warmth, all while being flattering at the same time. Here's to taking out some of the guess work in finding a winter coat and actually purchasing something that works for you. Staying warm and cozy doesn't mean that you need to sacrifice style!
When you're a bit more on the busty side of things, you want to look for a coat that flatters your shape without looking top heavy. Opt for a style that is beltless because a belt can accentuate your already ample bust. Try a tailored coat with military accents or a long coat which will elongate your shape and draw the eye away from your chest.
When you have a naturally tiny frame, you want to make sure that you select a winter coat that hugs your body in all of the right places. Avoid large bulky styles that can give you an "engulfed" look and opt for cropped coats that show off your petit shape. Also make sure that you take advantage of clothing companies that offer a selection of petit sizes that specifically cater to your body type and look age appropriate. If you haven't already started shopping in the petit section, you're truly missing out!
Full figured women can often find it daunting when looking for a winter coat that is stylish and flattering at the same time. You want to make sure that you pay attention to the fit around your arms, chest and hips with the coat zipped or buttoned up.
A good way to measure comfort is to try on the winter coat with a sweater or thicker shirt on underneath, that you would usually wear under your coat. Also your sleeves should ideally go an inch past your wrist to ensure that they stay covered while you're moving. Full figured women can wear any style of winter coat and many companies carry trendy options past sizes; small, medium and large.
Tall women can sometimes find shopping for a winter coat to be a pain, which can sometimes make your retail therapy sessions backfire. You can find things in your size, but all too often you could end up with a coat that is too short for your torso, too short for your arms, or even both. This can cause the illusion of your jacket looking like it has been shrunk in the dryer.
Go for winter coats that have eye catching patterns, cinched waists, and waist cinching belts. Bright and bold patterns give you a chance to showcase something other than your height and also adds pizzazz to your look. A coat that cinches at the waist is a great way to break up your long frame and add more proportion to your torso, giving you more of an hour-glass figure.
Don't forget that every body type can be accommodated and that these are just some guidelines. Always remember to have fun when choosing a winter jacket that works for you and makes you feel fabulous!
