The Cover Up!

ESSENCE.com Fashion Editor Celia Smith talks about the coats that will have you covered this season.

SHOW TRANSCRIPT

[MUSIC] We all know it's what's on the inside that counts. But when it comes to chic transitional wear, it's definitely what's on the outside. As we wrap up summer time, let's add some amazing jackets into your fall wardrobe. Petite? Elongate your neckline with the ultimate v-neck jacket. This camel coat is. Super cute, over sized, boyfriend style while still being a little tailored. The shape is still feminine. Semi-curvy and full figured ladies, just know that chic and comfort can both be accomplished by picking a v-neck jacket similar to my own. But make sure your buttons are beneath your bust, tailoring the look precisely to your shape. So, bustier babes, peplum jackets never looked so good. Remember, keep it classy by making sure the fit up top is always tailored. Bulging at the sides is a no-no. Triangle ladies, voluminous sleeves and structured shoulders will balance you out from top to bottom. Lastly, to my hourglass darlings, please try not to hide your shape in the wrong jacket. Belted jackets and trenches are the ultimate look for your contour. Yes, we're feeling a little summertime sadness, but not to worry. Head over to our fashion closet and stock up on the most stylish jackets this season, including this one.
