Cozy up to a winter coat that keeps you warm and complements your figure. Read on to learn which of the season’s key shapes is best for your body.
- A-Line Hem: Like your favorite A-line skirt, this Jessica Simpson coat flares from the waist for a feminine finish. It’s a great choice if you’re looking to minimize hips or balance broad shoulders.
- Belted Waist: Create an hourglass shape, even when you’re all bundled up. Ideal for most body types, this Calvin Klein peacoat contours your waistline.
- Statement Collar: Not only does this Steve Madden coat frame your face, but it also provides extra protection from chilly winds. Plus, the added volume accents your shoulders and flatters your lower body.
Quick Tips for a Flawless Fit
When trying on a coat, check for arm seams that hit at the edge of your shoulders — the coat is too small if the seams stop short, too big if they hang over. Cross your arms around your body to make sure you can move comfortably. Try the coat on with a chunky sweater to ensure there’s plenty of room for layering.
