A good winter coat is often one of our higher-ticket wardrobe expenditures so you will want to find one that's not only enduringly stylish-- but that flatters your figure.
There's a great selection of coats from Woodfield Mall stores, covering just about any body type.
(1)Barb in Talbots
The classic "camel coat" is back in a big way this season!
Styling is good for a pear-shaped figure (carries weight in hips).
Large, open collar draws eyes upward while the coat skims the rest of the body.
The straight line of buttons helps create a slimming silhouette by leading the eye down past the hips.
(2) Maria in White House, Black Market
To better fit a curvy figure, we've left the collar open, showing a little neck.
Triple princess seams naturally follow the curve of the figure.
To emphasize the waist and to give the coat a little pop, she's replaced the coat belt with a red and black belt.
Replacing belts or adding accessories are a great way to update your classic coat from year to year.
(3) Brigid in White House Black Market
Modern Plaid Ruffle Coat
Great coat for a "less curvy" figure.
Large ruffled collar and belted waist create curves.
Ruffles and plaid are very hot this year.
Black striped metallic scarf and red leather gloves add sparkle and a pop of color.
(4) Bernette in Eddie Bauer
Sundown Express Down Jacket
This coat will flatter apple-shaped figure (carries weight in mid-section).
Faux-fur lined hood is both on-trend and draws the eye up.
Diagonal stiching emphasizes the waist line.
The zippered pockets lie flat so there's no extra bulk around the middle.
(5) Alka in Ann Taylor
Modern luxe coat in classic camel ? season's number-one coat trend!
For the petite women, coat length is particularly important.
Length should never be more than three-quarters of the leg, ending just above the knee is best for creating a longer silhouette.
Double-breasted front closure and wide notch lapels complete the classic look.
(6) Jennifer in Torrid
Gray is another big coat color this season (along with camel and black).
Princess seaming flatters a fuller figure.
Belt emphasizes waist to create an hourglass figure.
Shorter coat length makes the legs look longer.
Open collar and buttons on front and sleeves provide interest.
