Joe’s perfect coat for your shape

Your winter coat is such a staple item. It’ll last you years and if you get it right you’ll look forward to cold days when you can pop it on and wait for all the amazing remarks to come flooding your way!

But with so many stunning designs to choose from it can be a minefield knowing which one is the best suited for your unique body shape.

 

So with the help of some sweets we had lying around (we’re never without sweets in JB HQ) we’ve matched up the styles that best suit all your beautiful body shapes….

A great trick to finding the right coat is to find a style that flatters not flattens your best assets. Single-breasted options are best for hourglasses, with a skirted bottom and tailored waist to show off your curvy figure.

Go for a big dramatic collar to draw the eyes up towards your shoulders. The gorgeous print of this patchwork balances out your awesome below-the-waistline curves.

In general, when you’re picking a coat, try not to go for something that clings to your biggest measurement. This oversized coat is perfect for creating an a-line shape that won’t draw any unwanted attention to your middle.

Create instant curves with this feminine shaped coat. The flattering full-skirt will accentuate your gorgeous lean shape and an assortment of off-center buttons adds an element of sophisticated charm.

Steer clear of billowy or double breasted designs. A cool stand collar will not only keep you warm and look stunning, but balance out a bigger bust.

ways to wear a waistcoat

Ways to wear a waistcoat

You might have noticed we can’t get enough of fun and funky waistcoats here at Joe Browns!

 

But knowing how to wear it, dress it up or down and give it your own distinctive twist can be a bit tricky, so we nabbed our head buyer Caroline, to give us a few pointers…

For the ladies:

She said: “Waistcoats are so versatile, you can easily style them for a smart or casual look. They’re great for adding an extra layer of warmth without being too bulky, as well as making a fun yet sophisticated impact to your outfit.

“My favourite from the new collection is the One Of a Kind Waistcoat because I love the stunning checked fabric teamed with funky buttons and a lace up back. It’s a really bold and bright look perfect for brightening up the cold dark nights to come!

“For a casual look you could pair it with an Understated Tie Neck Blouse with a lovely peter pan collar and ribbon tie – ideal for a trip to the shops or an impromptu coffee with friends.

“For a slightly smarter look, maybe for the office or evening drinks, it looks great with a crisp white shirt – like the Ruffle Blouse.

Or if you want to go even smarter for a special occasion and want a real wow factor, it looks amazing with a contrasting textured jacket. I think Our Favourite Jacket sets it off perfectly.”

Here’s a few more pics from our last shoot at the North York Moors Railway Station that’ll hopefully inspire you to rock a waistcoat this season… (click on the pic to be taken to the waistcoat).

For the guys:

 

This little beauty – the Charismatic Waistcoat – makes for the ultimate staple. In a quality wool mix with simple styling, it’s a great addition to pretty much any outfit.

Want to keep it cas for daytime drinks with the boys, but fancy a funky twist that they’ll all envy? Wack it over the top of a graphic tee like this Wild Night T-Shirt for a laid back look.

Go just that little bit further than a plain white shirt for a cool dapper style. The Tripple It Shirt has a few signature Joe Browns details, from the tripple collar to double contrast buttons and is spot on for date night or an evening out on the town.

For a complete distinguished gent style add on this awesome contrasting Charismatic Blazer. A great check is given a funky twist with mix and match cuff buttons creating a distinctive look. It comes complete with a pull out chest pocket lining that doubles as a pocket square – The ideal statement for special occasions.

An autumn capsule wardrobe that packs a punch

Our lovely customer Cheryl recently got in touch to demand an apology for producing too many gorgeous clothes she wanted to buy and couldn’t afford while going through an expensive divorce (sorry again Cheryl).

 

So if you’re like Cheryl and trying to keep the cost of feeling gorgeous down, a capsule wardrobe can be a great idea to force yourself to be selective and pick pieces you can mix ‘n’ match.

 

So we reckon we’ve come up with a 10 piece capsule wardrobe that’ll speed up the getting ready process, leaving more time to go out and have some fun!

 

For the sexy ladies:
