Wrap Coats For The Win – Channelling Our Inner Meghan Markle
We’re stealing a page from Meghan Markle’s style book: Wrap coats are the way to make an impression on the world. The flattering silhouette is for everyone.
Wrap coats fit for a princess
Meghan Markle knows a thing or two about looking good in front of a camera. Have you seen Suits? So when she announced her engagement to Prince Harry, she wore this beautiful white wrap from the Canadian fashion brand Line. Why? Likely because it is the most flattering silhouette on the outwear market. Cinched-in waist. Adjustable belt. Leggy length. V-shaped neckline. All the hourglass ingredients are there. Thankfully wrap coats are all the rage right now, and you can get your own “princess-cut” jacket too.
If your itinerary demands that you slay at work, employ a wrap coat. The hourglass silhouette conveys instant polish and works with all body types. Neutrals offer foolproof longevity, but don’t overlook a colour that calls to you. This swoon-worthy pink will make you feel like a boss. (Plus, future sis-in-law Kate Middleton has worn this jacket!)
