If you’re like me, this time of year is all about figuring out how to layer up while looking cute! The most important piece of the winter, is a warm, yet stylish winter coat.
Although there are many holiday sales at our favorite big-box stores, finding a new winter coat that fits within our budget and on our figures can be tricky! Take it from me--I went shopping just last week, visiting 7 local stores in hopes to find my perfect winter coat and I didn’t stumble upon it until my final store… JCPenney!
If you’re struggling trying to find the perfect coat fit for your figure, use this blog as your personal shopping tool as I wish I had it for when I was shopping. Don’t forget to post a pic of you in your fabulous fitting winter coat this season and tag #bitsyknowsbest in it!
First thing’s first! Determine your shape:
Figure Shape: Apple
Apple shapes are usually women with more curves on the top of your body. You have slender legs, and a fuller chest. Your go-to outfit is a flowy top and either leggings or skinny pants.
Figure Shape: Pear
Pear shaped women have a small chest that gradually fills into their more full hips and booty. Often confused with the hourglass, a pear shaped woman typically gravitates towards A-Line garments and outfits that focus the attention upwards.
Figure Shape: Hourglass
An hourglass shape is defined as woman whose body measurements of the bust and hip balance out and the waist is more narrowed. If you are an hourglass, you may not shy away from fitted garments and are proud of your top to bottom ratio.
Figure Shape: Rectangle
Women with a rectangle shape don’t typically have as drastic measurements as an hourglass or pear and usually have an undefined waist line. Athletes or other strong woman may sometimes have this figure shape. As a rectangle shape, you aren’t afraid of adding belts to the waistline, boot cut pants or other garments that generate curves.
