Like no other clothing item, the coat has the power to transform us. Its secret is simple; it consists of more fabric and covers up most garments. In other words, it is the perfect moderator.
Women who have short legs can wear a high waisted coat – and instantly resemble a long legged runway model. Someone who is strongly built around the legs and hips but has a petite upper body can wear a coat with an A-Line shape. A coat can compensate for most body shape imbalances.
You should never be a penny pincher when buying a coat – after all, it’ll last longer than any T-Shirt or a flimsy dress and because you’ll wear it more often, it is more visible. A quality coat crafted with premium materials can last you a decade. Go for classics like wool or cashmere in staple colours like navy, grey or black.
