This time of year has come when we must give it a twist to our closet and take out all those trendy garments and outfits that also protect us from the cold, and that includes coats, which require a precise length for the petite women, in order to avoid ‘cutting’ the figure.
The length of a coat that best suits petite women
Surely by now you already know that a coat in beige It is essential in your wardrobe, but has someone told you something about the length? If not, it is time for you to know that the best measurement for a ‘short’ coat is that it reaches the middle of the leg. On the other hand, if the cold outside is not forgiving and you need something a little longer, then it is best if you wear it to the middle of the calf.
Alter this measurement and wearing it lower can shorten your figure, particularly if you wear shoes with measurements that are a few inches from your coat. It is best to wear short ankle boots and boots that go over the length of your coat to avoid committing that faux-pas.
We know it seems too simple and almost obvious, but you would be surprised how many times we have seen this faux-pas in the fall. Details matter, particularly when we want to avoid reducing our height or when we look wider without our intention.
If you are going to invest this season in a coat, the best thing is that you look at its dimensions: If you are going to buy it online, take into account your height when purchasing it, as well as the measurements of this design, and if you are going to buy it at a store, definitely try it on before taking it. Wear low shoes to make sure they get the exact size.
Another detail that you should pay attention to is the sleeves size, ensure that these are not wide or flared, because they will add unfavorable dimensions for your silhouette.
Quality matters too
Well, since we are talking about the length of a coat, it does not hurt to tell you that this is another important thing to take into account when investing in one. Brands like Burberry are undoubtedly a reference par excellence, but you can opt for other options such as Hugo Boss, Tommy Hilfiger, Massimo Dutti or JW Anderson to find ideal pieces for you.
Beige is an excellent option, if possible, opt for the darker ranges of this shade, as well as terracotta, because if stained, the faux-pas will not be as evident as in a light-colored one. That said, it’s time you looked like the best dressed, hand in hand with the correct coat for petite women.
