Outerwear – those pieces that yo wear over the top of your clothes.  Jackets, cardigans and coats – depending on the season and climate.

Coats – if you are someone who wants only one coat then look for a coat in a colour similar to your hair colour.  This is called a hair enhancer and as we always wear our hair, then a coat in a similar colour will work with whatever you’re wearing it with.

Alternatively if you want a coat that isn’t in a neutral colour, consider a colour that is opposite to your hair colour – this is called a hair intensifier.

Jackets are a great way of adding that 3rd piece.  Their structure and design can cover what lies beneath.  Waistcoats are another 3rd piece option.  You can also express your personality through your jackets.

Here are more tips on finding a flattering jacket to work with your features.
