Welcome to my February newsletter. I'm not quite sure where January went but I have to say i'm glad to see the back of what has been a dark and dreary month.
As I write this we are a few days from February and its strangely feeling much more like winter, with a frost on the ground and clear blue skies above.
In this newsletter I thought i'd give you some helpful advice on choosing the best winter coat for your body shape.
I have also included my top style tips for slimming your tum, as we continue to fight the post Christmas bulge, which is free for you to download as a valued subscriber.
Hope you enjoy the read x

The best winter coat for your body shape
A winter coat is a staple item in every women's wardrobe, and choosing the best style to suit your body shape will make this an investment piece for years to come! 

A classic pear shaped lady will be wider around the hips and bottom and smaller on the top. To balance this shape a coat with shoulder detail, lapels or a fur edged hood will draw attention upwards and create balance. Biker style and short jackets are great for you. As long as the hemline doesn't finish on your hips which will accentuate your widest point.

This lady is the opposite to a pear shape and will find her widest area is her shoulders and or bust, her hips and bottom will be narrow in comparison. To balance this shape a coat that flares out at bottom and that is simple at the top would be perfect, known as a trapeze shape. Alternatively a belted bell shaped coat or flared hem would work well. Both options give detail and fullness to the lower half of the body.

If you are a rectangle shape you will see little difference between your shoulder, waist and hip measurement. The secret here is to define and create a waist. A belted coat will draw you in at the waist, some structure in the shoulders and a flared hem will add to the curved silhouette and give you femininity. If however you are a rectangle that doesn't want to add femininity and instead wants to accentuate your tall lean figure then a very long slightly flowy coat will do just that.

If you gain weight around your middle you are most likely an apple shape. A coat that fits nicely and is quite straight at the top half and then really swings out will be the most flattering for you. Preferably knee length.

Hourglass ladies have balanced shoulders and hips and a small defined waist.
You lucky things have the pick of the bunch. But be warned as an hourglass you must work to maintain the focus on your curvy figure as its easy to change your shape and appear more rectangular in a shapeless coat for example! The easiest coat for you to wear is a tailored coat which you can wear open and casual or belted and elegant. Below the knee works well for you.
Classic camel coat
We can be any of the above shapes with the addition of being petite (5'3 and under) and tall (5'6 and over)
As a general rule for winter coats if you are petite keep your coat  above the knee or shorter and if you are tall below the knee or longer.
