Fit Your Perfect Coat, Then Find it On Sale Now

December 21, 2011

Have you had your eye on a new coat this season, but just couldn’t justify the expense? Good news! Now is the time to buy a quality coat. Stores take deep cuts on coat prices between Christmas and the New Year to make room for the upcoming Spring merchandise. In fact, this year, some deals are already here!

But, why is it so hard to find a coat that fits well? There is always a particular body part that makes it difficult to fit comfortably into your perfect coat. This is why I created Corporate Fashionista, a forum to help you feel fabulous…this time in the right coat! So I’ve put together an Outerwear Guide to provide you with solutions to the most common coat fit challenges. No matter if you have a well endowed chest or just the opposite, a muffin waistline, a full backside or your mother’s thick thighs, linebacker shoulders, super short or long, gangly arms; I’ve highlighted features you need to be looking for in your new coat.

Understanding these key fit tips will help you to quickly feel confident and chase the chills in style.
