Fashion Advice: Coat 101

January 2, 2017

Now that the snow is here, coats are out in full force. While every client I work with has very different coat needs, I find myself looking for the following main things for nearly every one of my clients:


1) Waist definition:  

If you can’t see your waist (or the coat does not fake one) you are making yourself look bigger.  Look for a jacket that has a great cut in at the waist or even better has a belt detail or waist seam to show off your fabulous shape!




2) Length:
In terms of length look for a jacket that is either hitting you mid butt or higher or just above the knee.  Covering your butt fully, but then stopping immediately after it is not a great proportion on anyone.  So keep it lower or higher depending on your warmth preference!




3) Fit:
Finally, whenever possible try to get a jacket that is either single breasted or has a zipper.  While a double-breasted wool jacket is definitely the “classic” look, they also add a lot of bulk. A jacket that does not have a ton of extra fabric in the front will always be more figure flattering!




Happy coat hunting!
