Which style coat is most flattering for your body?

November 26, 2012
Although Kate Middleton looks fabulous in anything, coats with a slim-fit and belt are especially flattering.

We've said farewell to warm weather, espadrilles, sundresses and shorts and most of us have welcomed the cooler weather with open arms. It's not that we didn't love summer, but humid weather, frizzy hair and breakouts were getting old, right? Well, now that we've taken out scarves and other cool weather accessories, like the Marc Jacobs tall leather grey boots from Dellamoda.com, it's time to thinking about what type of coat we'll be wearing this season.

Because there are so many different types to choose from, finding the perfect jacket for your body type can be a bit daunting. However, InStyle.com will tell you that going shopping for this staple doesn't have to give you a headache, if you follow the tips below:

Boyish figures
If you have a boyish figure like the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Milddleton, then a slim-fitting coat with a belt is your best bet. It'll give you the curves you crave without making you look too bulky.

Curves, curves and more curves
Every time we see her on "Mad Men," actress Christina Hendricks amazes us with her killer figure. If you've got envy inducing curves like she does, then you'll look best in a tailored coat that shows off how small your waist is and highlights, how shall we say, your fabulous backside.

Short and sweet
If you are petite, then it's important that you don't buy a coat that is going to overwhelm you. Michelle Williams is a pro at looking gorgeous and she knows that because she's on smaller side, it's a good idea to pick out a jacket that doesn't fall below the knee.
