Coats, jackets and blazers are all fashion staples for the winter season. Matter of fact, a basic trench is a fashion must have for everyone. Coats are designed to gorgeously sculpt the body by emphasizing the waist line and the feminine form of the body. At the same time you want to make sure your coat offers a great coverage which creates a mysterious and elegant look. Finding the perfect coat for you maybe a trial and error process, but your search can be easier once you figure out what fits your body shape. If you are heavier on top, stick with single breasted and straight cut styles that won’t clinch much at the waist making you appear slimmer. Swing style peacoats are a good match for women with heavier hips and thighs, and expectant mothers who need some extra room in the middle. An hourglass shape will make a coat that is double breasted and tailored look amazing while emphasizing your waist. You could even pick one with a small buckle on the back. Fitted peacoats with bold prints are a good fit for tall and skinny women who need to add some curves and flare to their look. No matter what style you choose, adding a classic pea coat to your closet will make your winters warmer and more fashionable.
