Flattering Coats For Your Shape

As the mercury drops, your winter coat is your single most viewed wardrobe item. If your coat doesn’t fit your shape, you tend to look frumpy instead of polished as you move in and out of the office, and to and from business engagements.

In the interest of creating a fabulous sartorial experience for all – I found flattering coats for every shape.

Click on any coat to discover more, or use these tips as a guide when you search for the perfect winter coat.

Boyish:

If you have a narrow  frame, a long tailored jacket will flatter you. Belt your coat to create additional curves. Use the belt the coat comes with, or try adding your own for professional sartorial flair.

Unfortunately, the metaphorical glass ceiling still stands.

What Hillary achieved shows how far we’ve come, but we still have work to do. As I read Slate’s July article The Hillary Haters, three points struck me since the election favored Donald Trump. These three points parallel barriers I often hear from women in senior management in corporate America, and my own personal experience.

Ambitious TGI Friday Find

*Ambitious Finds  items hunted to help you feel haughter, happier, and more confident in the boardroom and out.

   Dressing up all week is great for getting in the zone, but when casual Friday comes around I love to relax a little and dress up my jeans.

Today I found this beautiful purple Classiques Entier tweed blazer inspired the J.Crew purple tweed blazer look I posted on Instagram.

Classiques Entier combines a striking  blend of quality and style without the high price points of other quality workwear brands. For a polished powerful casual Friday look, coordinate your tweed jacket with a tie blouse in white, light blue, or the spicy yellow that is so popular this fall.
