What to wear this fall

Let's take a look at some of latest fall trends in outerwear and find out what's best suited for women with an hourglass figure.

The hourglass figure features a top and bottom that are evenly proportioned, with a well-defined waist. Contrary to popular belief, hourglass women aren't necessarily full-figured. Slim, plus-size and every size in between can be hourglass, as long as the body is curvy with a slim waistline.

What to wear this fall

Tailored coat

Women with hourglass figures are lucky because they can wear all lengths of coats and jackets. However, curvy women look best in curvy outerwear -- so skip the full-length shapeless coats and look for something that's tailored and nipped at the waist.

    What to wear this fall

      Flared trench

      A fantastic choice for fall is a classic trench coat with a slightly flared shape. Always use the belt on your trench to call attention to your fabulous waist. Look for a coat in a bold, bright color to liven up a dark fall wardrobe.

      Styles to avoid

        Steer clear of oversized boyfriend cardigans and swing coats -- they won't do your shape any justice. Look for coats that hint at your curves, rather than completely cover them up in a shapeless style.
