Wrap coats and skirts have one thing in common–too much fabric! If you are very slender, you can wear this look effortlessly. If you are short waisted or thick in the waist, don’t do it. The coats have too much fabric for you to wear open-they add width. They both add more fabric around your body (never good), and draw attention to your waist. The skirts often open when you’re walking or sitting–too much work. It’s also hard to find a top that works with a wrap skirt–you already have the opening flap in the front and often a buckle or belt–go with a simple pullover sweater or plain tee. Stick with a pencil skirt–always great!
