1. Petite like Nicole Richie
Why it works: Both the loud print and the length could have worked against the 5'1 reality star. So why does she look so good? She paired the coat with an all black look which creates the illusion of height. Her choice of skinny jeans and sleek chelsea boots elongates her figure as well.
2. Athletic like Ciara
Why it works: Many athletic women have boxier shoulders therefore and don't want to emphasize them with an oversized look. Ciara has the solution. The huge lapels distracts from her broad frame and feminizes the silhouette. We love how she decided to make the coat the statement and keep the rest simple.
3. Skinny like Victoria Beckham
Why it works: When you're super thin you do not always want to emphasize it. The oversized coat could easily wear you and not the other way around. The Spice Girl pulls it off thanks to a perfectly tailored pair of trousers. They add shape to her body by finding the perfect balance between baggy and tight. We also like how she wears the coat on her shoulders. Très posh!
4. Curvy like Kim Kardashian
Why it works: Because she isn't hiding her curves completely! Although her body is covered by the coat, her pencil skirt and cropped shirt show off her full figure. It's subtle yet sexy.
5. Plus-size like Adele
Why it works: The cinched waist adds form to the coats whilst the billowing sleeves enables that oversize effortless cool. We approve of this all black ensemble.
