The Fitting Room: Finding a Coat That Flatters
Coat season. Why, hello – here you are. And with you? The fear of looking overly bulky in your layers. But we promise: it’s possible to appear slim and streamlined in that coat no matter your shape, thanks to these quick fit tips.
Disguise a tummy… with a coat that’s relatively straight or slightly A-lined. Avoid oversized buttons and anything that nips too much at the middle. But don’t be afraid to have fun – the leather detailing on this number keeps it on-trend.
Flatter your curves… with a knee-length coat that ties at the waist. Single-breasted coats are particularly flattering – especially if you have a larger bust.
Boost a boyish frame… with detailing like toggles, buttons, and pockets. This straight look-at-me red number has plenty of flattering detail – and the fur at the hood makes it uber cozy.
