Off-Season Shopping: Coats & Choosing The Right Style For You

A great way to save money is to buy clothing offseason. Now that summer is just around the corner, it may seem a bit strange, but it's the perfect time to get a great deal on a coat. Fabulous toppers are a great way to pull an outfit together, but once fall is in full swing, you'll be hard-pressed to find a good deal on a gorgeous coat. Now's the time to prepare for your cold-weather layering.  Here are a few tips to make sure you're choosing the right style:

If you are going to invest in a coat, you will want to make sure that the coats you choose for yourself suit your body shape and your style. Here are some of the different body types alongside the type of coat that suits them.

If you have a long torso and long legs, choosing a coat to suit your body shape can be pretty annoying. A lot of the time taller women struggle finding a coat which is long enough, fits them right and has long enough sleeves. If you are familiar with this problem, you will be glad to hear that an oversized style will look great on your body type. Oversized coats can be left open throughout the day and will cover your frame bringing a sense of femininity to your body.

If you are on the opposite end of the scale and you are a small woman, you might feel drowned in many of the coats you pick up, and this can end up making you feel pretty dumpy. To accentuate your figure as well as accommodate your smaller size, you can go for a cropped pea coat which will end at the hips and help to make you feel more in proportion.

If you are a woman who has a very slim and flat chested figure, the good news is that pretty much any style will suit your body shape. To accentuate your femininity and give the idea of a fuller bust and curves, you can go for a coat which has an exaggerated collar and frills. Navy style coats can be ideal for a woman of this shape and one which is cut just above the knee will always be flattering.

For women who have larger busts, it can be difficult to find a coat which flatters the body as well as fitting over the bust area. The best type of coats you can look for if you are this shape is a coat which accentuates that hourglass shape. You will want a coat which is simple in design and which cinches in at the waist. Look for a tailored women's coat which flairs out a little below the waist to really accentuate your figure. 

Remember, that shopping off-season may mean great deals, but you will have to search a bit harder to find the perfect piece. Make sure you check local and online retailers and familiarize yourself with the return policy before you buy.
