COAT IS CLEAR

I’m not going to sugarcoat this – you need a new coat because chances are the one you have is a write-off. And it has to be your signature coat – one that looks like it was created just for you.
Here’s a guide to help you pick your most flattering winter coat yet.
BOYISH Girls with straight up and down figures like Kate Middleton’s can create curves with coats that cinch the waist. Choose a classic trench (belted) or Forever New’s Sisi single-breasted coat in Coral, which nips in at the waist and flares out at the hips to create a feminine silhouette.
PEAR So you have a bodacious booty like Beyonce? Then choose an A-line coat with wide lapels to highlight the top half of your body and draw attention away from your bottom and thighs. Try Witchery’s Trim Wrap Coat in Light Grey Marle, which has a winter-white wide collar and fauxleather black trim.
HOURGLASS If you have a shapely chest and bottom with a wasp waist like Scarlett Johansson look for a coat which plays up your assets and always wear it belted. Trenery’s Milano Trench in Night Sky, pictured, is knitted and therefore more structured than a traditional trench – which means it skims the body.
APPLE If your tummy is bigger than your bust, an above-the-knee (to show off your great legs) duster coat worn open will help even things up by cutting your figure into three equal parts. If you like tartan check out Portman’s Ex Boyfriend Coat in black and white.
When you’ve found your perfect need-it-now coat be sure to donate your old one to St Vinnies at one of the collection points in the city. Because everyone needs a coat.
