In this article, I share with you my list of favorite coats based on different body shapes.


The Hourglass body shape 

To emphasize your figure, choose slim coats. Ladies with the hourglass body shape shouldn’t hesitate to show their waist by adding a large belt over the coat. This will draw attention to the strongest point of their body.

The A body shape

For this body shape, choose long coats with epaulettes to add structure to the upper body part and create balance.

The V body shape

If your shoulders are larger than your hips, capes are a great choice. As for your coats, choose them with round necks, A line shape, and without epaulettes. Our goal will be to create balance by adding volume to your hips.

The H body shape

Trench coats, straight coats and A line shapes are the best choices for this body shape.

The O Body shape

When you choose your coats, focus on the neck line. Waterfall and shawl collar create a vertical illusion and elongates the body, therefore they should be your number one choice.

If you are tall, don’t hesitate on choosing long coats.

If you are « petite », short coats are your best friends.
