There are 3 things you should consider when buying a new coat
1-The length of the coat
It's super important that you wear the perfect length coat for your height.
For petites - Choose a coat that finishes right below your hips - your goal is to try to show as much your legs as possible. That will give the feeling of longer and leaner.
For tall- You can use and abuse mid and longer coats styles
