10 Must-Have Coats For Petites To Wear This Winter
Petite frames normally need to be careful when choosing winter coats. Either the cut is too long, it's too loose, or the style is entirely disproportionate. With that in mind, your petite AMIE editors have done all the research to find the outerwear that fits your figure just right. Scroll down to check out our top 10 picks at a variety of styles and price points.
Down puffers are a must for your winter wardrobe. To temper too much bulk, find ones that come equipped with a drawcord waist or belt. It will help accentuate your figure. Inspired by the great American landscape, this puffer vest features unexpected details that make it fit for the city. A belt at the waist helps define the shape.
When you're petite, loud clothing can overwhelm a small frame. The solution is to pick a minimal coat in neutral basic colors, such as black, camel or white. No matter what you're wearing underneath, this camel coat with a custom-molded wool poppy applique at the lapel, commands attention.
Leopard, the iconic print, comes back with a decidedly polished and wearable slant this year. This fuzzy, brushed wool coat layers perfectly over your entire winter wardrobe. It offers petite sizes that designed with smaller proportions in mind.
Choose bright colors that help petites stand out in a crowd. Hues such as yellow or red help make the most of your small stature by bringing your figure to the fore while adding a pop to more neutral outfits underneath. A bouclé weave adds a unique texture to this double-breasted mustard coat.
A hemline that isn't too long is especially important for petites because the more leg you show, the taller you'll appear. Invest in your new winter wardrobe staple with this navy hooded coat that ends above the knee. It's pockets add a military vibe, with the ring clasp closure to the front adding some edge.
Look for sleek and simple cuts that aren't too boxy or voluminous. A long, lean line will create the illusion of height. This grey coat is cut from an ultra-soft blend of wool and cashmere, and simply wraps around the figure with an open front and matching waist belt.
Tailored coats that fit your frame are your best bet. Look for ones with minute details, like a fur color, structured piping, or a double-breasted silhouette that can bring interest without overwhelming.
Bundle up against the bitter cold by layering on a khaki parka coat. Choosing one with contrasting embroidered bead patches and shimmery details for an hourglass-accentuating (and stylish!) effect.
Bomber jackets are always the perfect partner for your petite frame. Opt for a faux fur bomber jacket that gives you a sporty and luxe look and keeps you stylish without sacrificing the warmth!
