Fall coats for rectangle shapes

Women with rectangle-shaped figures should wear clothes that give the illusion of more curves. Read on to find out which fall coats and other outerwear are best for rectangle-shaped body types.

      Hip-length coat

      A coat that stops at the hip is a fabulous option for rectangle-shaped figures. A tailored style that nips in at the waist or has a belt will also give you the curvier look that you desire. Rectangle-shaped women should look for any coats that make them look a little more like an hourglass.

      Styles to avoid

        Avoid double-breasted coats because they look too boxy for your body shape. Drop-waist coats are also poor options for your rectangle-shaped figure.
