Put down that sleeping bag puffer coat! Say buh-bye to the bum look and get a crisp weather jacket that actually flatters your body type. It's easy if you follow these tips
Do you have trouble finding a jacket that flatters your tiny frame? Does a "normal" knee-length coat hit at your ankles? No worries. There are plenty of jackets out there that complement petite body types.
According to fashion editor Stephanie Rygorsky, one of the biggest mistakes a petite girl can make is by buying a large, bulky jacket that engulfs the body. Instead "aim for a cropped jacket that shows off your small shape," she says. And if you haven't looked for coats made specifically for petite sizes, you're missing out. Since these jackets are made with the right proportions for your body type, a knee-length coat will actually fit like a knee-length coat -- not a gigantic sleeping bag.
