Choose the coat !
begins to get colder, it's important to start thinking about shopping for the perfect to bundle up in. A winter coat is essential if you live in a cold climate. Your winter coat is going to be one of your bigger clothing purchases and one of most used items in your closet during the winter, so you should enjoy wearing it. If your outerwear is right for your life and for your shape, you will look your best, no matter the occasion.
Larger figures will look best in leaner straight cuts and should avoid double-breasted coats or those made of thick material . Choose a coat that looks good worn open too.
Belted coats look best on slim and petite figures - opt for one with a wider belt which will flatter a thicker waist.
having more than two or maximum three coats in a person’s wardrobe is unrealistic. The best outerwear to buy is something that can be very versatile. It's best to determine your wardrobe needs first and go from there. Ideally, every wardrobe should have an outerwear jacket and a knee-length coat. Jackets work best when you are looking for something to wear on casual occasions, while coats often look more appropriate when a dressier look is required.
- Along with the length of coat, don’t forget to consider the shape and where the pockets are.
- If you have wider hips and don’t want to draw attention to them, avoid coats with big pockets on the hips.
- If you have a larger bust, look for a coat with a lower opening, rather than one that does up high.
- If you don’t have a defined waist, avoid belted coats
Choosing the coat is not just about love at first sight and a wild passionate fling. Think carefully about what you want the coat for.
Don’t wake up the next morning and say to yourself, “What was I thinking of?” when you spy that huge purple and green cape on your bedside chair.
Think what clothes you might wear under your coat. What length, style and colour will your skirts be?
Secure them in neutral solids such as black, dark brown, dark navy blue and beige/camel - which work well with absolutely everything you have in your wardrobe.
