LOOK FOR… A style that hovers just at the knee, like Christina Ricci's. A coat with bracelet sleeves will also help elongate your look. AVOID… Long coats, voluminous or double-breasted styles, wide lapels and excess flourish or detail.
LOOK FOR… A semifitted style that hits at the point where the hips start to curve out or that just covers the derriere. Belted styles are also flattering. AVOID… Cropped shapes and styles that button up to the neck.
