Make sure your overcoat is perfectly fitted to your body.

Length Matter

Length also matters in overcoats. The good height is just above the knee or mid-thigh.

This length is good for any height person.

Color is important

Black color is good, but I found black is overrated when it comes to overcoat. Every second person chooses only black.

Try some other options like tan, gray, navy, brown, beige and so on. But yeah, you should stick to neutral colors and don’t buy patterns or overcoats with designs on them.

8 ways to wear Overcoat

A Basic plain T-shirt is good for a season when it’s not too cold. If you are comfortable with a T-shirt then pair it.

A good combination for your overcoat. This is perfect for any regular day of your life. Make sure to accessorize your outfit to add details.

2. Gray Turtleneck

Shirts can be white and don’t need to change the color of the shirt. For the bottom, you can choose according to your event. If not too formal, chinos or jeans can be Good. Again I’ll prefer boots.

4. With Suit

When you are done wearing a proper suit, but you still feel cold. In that case, you can replace your shirt with a turtleneck or you can add a layer of overcoat instead.

Honestly, an overcoat is a better option. First, it’s more classy and second you can take it off when you feel warm.

5 With a waistcoat
