This is the fall jacket I have chosen to wear this year (it is not a maternity one!). I have been looking for a quilted jacket that looked good on me for several years and was happy to finally find one! This one is perfect because of the darts that shape it and because of the rich brown color.
If you still haven't gotten your jacket yet, here are some common styles as compared with body type guidelines to help you:
- Curvy or Full Bust: The pockets on jean jackets make this style less flattering than other jackets. Look for a high-collared version with a snug fit and without any detailing. Avoid jackets with dropped shoulders.
- Short-waisted or with Tummy: Opt for a jacket that hits the top of the hips, with a high collar, high armhole, and a straight body.
- Short in Height or Long-Waisted: Choose a snug, cropped fit.
- Bottom Heavy: You can wear the classic, straight style that hits at the top of the hipbone. A snug fit will look best.
- Curvy or Full Bust: Chose a high-collared version with a snug fit and no detailing.
- Boyish: You can wear the classic styler that hits at the top of the hipbone and has a bone asymmetrical closure.
- Short in Height or Long-Waisted: choose a snug, cropped fit.
- Bottom Heavy, Short-waisted or with Tummy: Opt for a jacket that hits at the tp of the hips, has a high collar, a natural fit at the shoulder and a straight body.
- Curvy or Full Bust: This style will look best on you if worn open. Chose one that fits in the shoulder, is more fitted that round, and has a high neck with no detailing.
- Boyish: You can wear the classic waist-length style.
- Short in Height or Long-Waisted: Opt for jackets that are waist-length or a bit shorter. Snug-fitting styles are best.
- Bottom Heavy, Short-waisted or with Tummy: The elasticized hem of this style makes it a poor choice for your body type.
- Curvy or Full Bust: Choose a single-breasted style with a high collar and minimal detailing. the jacket should hang at least to the hipbone and should not be over-sized.
- Boyish: A straight style that isn't too voluminous will look best.
- Short in Height or Long-Waisted: This is not a flattering style of this body type.
- Bottom Heavy, Short-waisted or with Tummy: A straight, single-breasted style that ends below the hips will be most flattering.
