Discovering the perfect winter coat for your body shape

Lets find the perfect coat for your body shape…

When it comes to autumn/winter, one of the essential basics for our wardrobes is a coat (or two). So what should we consider when ensuring the coat we buy fits the bill and can be a sustainable classic in our capsule wardrobe?

Coats can be one of the most important investments in a wardrobe, so getting it right could mean having one for years. What we want is to get excited for the colder months and feel great each time we wear our favourite coat. So lets get stuck into to some styling advise, so you can find the perfect coat…

BODY SHAPE

Looking at length, waist-line and shape/style of coat is essential. Discover personalised tips for your body shape below, including what style of coat to look out for.

MATERIAL & CUT

You are looking for a fabric that will last the test of time. Beware 100% wool can bobble and naturally catches hair if you have animals. The best blend is a mix between wool, cashmere and a synthetic fabric
