Pick Winter Coats Suited to Body Type


The main requirement of a satisfying winter coat is its warmth and comfort, whereas its stylish look is secondary but still an important factor. But the fact is everybody has different shapes resulting in the difficulty to choose the appropriate one for your own body shape. But with the help of the following tips, you would be able to choose the right winter coat for you this fall/winter 2015.

Petite figure
If you have a petite figure then your winter coat must be of knee length with simple lines on sleeves. If you want to have a taller look, try empire waist, belts and fitted bodices. Avoid Long coats, double-breasted styles, voluminous details and wide lapels but can add tiny details to the neckline.

Curvy figure
Those with curvy figures should go for straight or belted winter coats along with shoulder padding and simple lines. Try to avoid high neckline flaps and patch pockets. You can go for knee-length, narrow lapels tapered to the waist or single-breasted coats.
Broad Shoulders
Those with broad shoulders can go for loose unstructured jackets with raglan sleeves or deep armholes. You may go for V-necks and can also try mid-hip length or longer with details that would balance your figure. Don’t go for double-breasted style as it will make your shoulders look broader. Also avoid breast pockets, trimming, epaulets and shoulder pads.
Narrow Shoulders
For those with narrow shoulders should go for military style winter coats with reasonable padding on shoulders. Don’t go for dropped or raglan sleeves instead go for straight sleeves. You can also use a belt for waist or double-breast to distract attention from your shoulders.
Boyish figure
Don’t exaggerate the shoulders but use seamed bodices. The best for you will be princess-shaped silhouette, bold details with large buttons and patch pockets.
Small Bust
If you have small bust you should go for nipped waist with flattering details on the top. Classic trench winter coats, wide lapels, seams, shoulder draping with high arm holes can help you a lot.
Full Bust
People with full bust should go for semi-fitted, single-breasted style winter coats with deep V-neck and narrow lapels. Also natural shoulders and high arm holes will make you look slimmer. Don’t try fitted waists but cuts should not be too high or tight.
Protruding belly
You could go for single-breasted style, straight cut, tailored style or A-line shaped winter coats. To give a slimmer look you can try high armholes and natural shoulders. Moreover, mid-hip or longer length will give a good touch to your shape. Avoid over-sized buttons and pockets.
