Winter Wonderland of Coats

With the winter season just around the corner, some serious winter coat shopping needs to be done. There's so many different kinds of shapes, colors and patterns. Don't be afraid this winter to go with something daring that maybe you wouldn't normally try, like a fuschia or teal. Or if you like to play it safe, brighten up a black coat with a bright scarf or gloves. And be sure to buy the right coat for your body type! These tips will help you chose while looking through the racks of wool, cotton, and cashmere and give you a cheap alternative to this season's hottest designer looks. Bundle up!

Try to find a coat that isn’t too long. Length will make you look like your coat is swallowing you, and that’s just not good. Aim for a length that falls just below your butt. Don’t be afraid to add some color or accent with a cute scarf!

Since we know you’ve got killer legs, why not show them off? Look for a shorter coat that will show off just how long your legs are. It should stop right at the hips. Don’t be afraid to play with some new shapes like this one from Forever.

Since you’ve had summer and fall to show off what your mama gave ya, winter is the perfect time to focus on something else, like your legs! Shop for a coat that buttons high at the neck and that isn’t too long. Wear with a pair of skinny jeans and heels and your legs with look miles long.
