Jackets are your closet’s secret weapons: they update your outfit, keep you warm, and can be total showstoppers all in one. The key is finding the best version for your body. Luckily, we have options and answers. Scroll through to find the best looks just for you.
The Moto Jacket
Perfect for Petites
Diminutive in stature? Rev things up in a style that’s iconic with a bit of edge. The trick is to avoid overpowering your frame. Motorcycle jackets are a perfect case in point. Look for shorter lengths, structured seams, and thoughtfully edited embellishments that add interest, without adding bulk. Click to buy.
The Collared Jacket
Hips, What Hips?
Pear-shaped proportions are beautifully balanced by a statement collar, like the one above. The heightened drama of this faux-fur jacket draws the eye up away, while the belt defines your waist, for a nicely balanced proportion. (Miracles do happen.) Click to buy.
Narrow Shoulders Solved
Quite possibly our favorite fashion power move. Slight frames command attention in a classic structured blazer. The secret? Look for sleeves with seams just beyond the edge of the shoulder for a subtle boost in width. Trim tailoring will keep your silhouette well defined. Click to buy.
The Bomber Jacket
Straight Frames, Right This Way
Your mission here: accentuate the narrowest part of your waist. A banded hem and slightly cropped length go above and beyond to add some curve in all the right places. (Tall girls, you’ll love how this style plays-up long legs, as well.) Click to buy.
The Military Jacket
Best for Bombshell Figures
If your shape is a little more busty, choose a cut that extends down the torso to streamline your silhouette, without fighting it. Symmetrical embellishments create a nice visual balance with beautiful precision. Click to buy.
The Cape Coat
Breeze-Over Broad Shoulders
Elementary, really: A loose-fitting layer helps de-emphasize a broader build. This A-line cape coat gives the illusion of structure without constricting your body. Arms are elongated, while a stand-up collar draws attention to your most show-stopping asset: your face. Click to buy.
The Trench Vest
Your Finest Hourglass
The timeless trench is a waist-defining wonder for all body types from straight to curved, tall to petite. (And in other news, the sky is blue.) We’re loving this abbreviated version, cut in a sleeveless vest that’s perfect for lightened-up layering. A tie-belt detail carves out a custom fit to complement your form. Click to buy.
