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
As an hourglass, you're definitely not lacking in curves. So, how do you show off your voluptuous shape in a bulky jacket? Just like with clothing, you want to emphasize your waist -- the smallest part of your body.
According to Rygorsky, an hourglass figure should look for a belted knee-length style. "It's important to emphasize the waistline with an hourglass figure, otherwise your shape can get lost in a jacket," she says. And if you already own a coat, but it didn't come with a belt, don't be afraid to add your own. Rygorsky says, "a wide belt looks especially good over a winter coat."
