Do you own outerwear that fits all your needs including making you look your best? If you have an hourglass shape, the coats that look best on the inverted triangle shape would flatten you out and take away your curves. I’ve given you one example of why it is essential to learn which style of coat is best for your shape.
The hourglass figure looks best in the style of coat that has a belt and a fit and flare silhouette. The wrapped style will look great on you. The trench coat shown below is here.
Your best leather jacket would be similar to the shape below. This coat is here.
The pear shape figure has hips that are wider than the bust and the waist. Your best coat style will bring the attention up to the shoulders. Wider collars with fur or a hood and other details such as epaulets are great for you. Never let the hem end at your widest part. Keep the hem of short coats above the hips. Long coats should be fitted and sleek with no extra fabric below the waist. The coat below is here.
The best style of biker jacket for a pear shape figure would be similar to this coat found here.
If you have a rectangle shape, belted coats are best for you. A long tailored straight coat such as the one below found here can also work for you.
Your best biker jacket will have details that mimic a waistline such the jacket below found here.
Those of us with inverted triangle shapes can wear trapeze and bell-shaped coats which add a little volume below the waist to balance wider shoulders and smaller hips. The upper part of coats and jackets should fit close to the body without adding bulk. The coat shown below is here.
The best biker style jacket for the woman with an inverted triangle shape is sleek and fitted without studs, zippers, padding or other shoulder details. The jacket below is here.
The woman with an apple shape gains weight in the tummy area first. Swing coats and other coat styles which are fitted in the bodice and then flare out under the bust are best for you. The coat below can be found here.
The apple shape requires a biker jacket which ends below the tummy area without adding bulk with its details. The jacket below is found here. Links in my posts will generate a small commission for Susan After 60 Inc if you place an order using my referral links.
Always hang your coat on a hook or rack to air out and dry thoroughly before hanging it back in your closet. Use sturdy hangers so that coats maintain their shape.
I hope my examples, descriptions and tips are helpful to you. The video below shares my retirement wardrobe of coats and one of my favorite scarves. I am planning for my retirement time now, so I am only buying things I can wear for several years as I travel more often and enjoy a low-key lifestyle. In the video, I am wearing the navy crepe items and the Carousel Square Scarf Navy & Tan from my shopping site at SusanAfter60.
