Feel slimmer in seconds with our round up of the most flattering coats.
A fabulous coat is a style staple for winter, so feeling body confident is essential. Don't want to spend your Saturday traipsing up and down the high street? We don't blame you. Well you're in luck because we've rounded up the best slimming coats on the high street to suit all shapes and sizes.
When it comes to buying a winter coat to suit your shape, the key thing to look for is versatility. Coats are always on the higher end of the price scale so you need to make sure that you invest in something that you can wear for any occasion. Tailored pieces are incredibly adaptable for work or weekend, plus the structured shape always adds definition to your body, so perfect for looking slimmer.
Key prints to look out for this season are heritage checks and muted leopard. Classic shades such as navy, camel, burgundy and emerald are the palette to stick to for staying on-trend. Longer length cuts are dominating the high street, which is ideal for streamlining your shape. Whereas choosing a shorter coat that finishes above or on the hips cuts off your body making it look out of proportion, which is a big no no.
So without further ado, take a scroll through our best slimming coats for AW18.
In a classic double breasted cut and with a longer length, this emerald coat from M&S will last you for years to come. Ideal for elongating the body, so a great piece if you carry your weight around your middle.
Just because it's a loud print doesn't mean that this coat can't be slimming. With a darker shade, use this coat to contour your shape and wear it over lighter colours such as cream or white.
If you tend to carry your weight on your bottom half then this is the coat for you. The light camel at the top will instantly draw the eyes upwards, whilst the black and burgundy at the bottom will slim your worry zone in seconds.
