If You Are Petite
Look for: A shortish coat, either a bomber or hip-length, which shows more leg, making you seem taller, says Ilan Elfassy, the founder of Soia & Kyo. Knee-length works if the waistline aligns with yours.
Avoid: Maxis, too-long sleeves, or broad shoulders—you’ll look lost.
To buy: Improvd polyester coat that converts to a bomber or vest, $398, 212-242-4020.
