Knit Sweater Coats for All Body Types - Fall Fashion
With the right cut, a well-textured sweater-coat can be as sweet on a petite or plus size as on someone tall and willowy.

King has a crush on this cuddly yet polished knit wool coat (Magaschoni, $698). The fit is important: easy but not baggy (tentlike garments make larger figures look bigger). Similarly, the A-line dress (Christopher Fischer Cashmere, $325) skims rather than clings and carves her waist with a built-in sash. Glittery jewelry near the face (necklace, available at Jennifer Miller) takes the focus away from problem areas—a trick King learned from her mother: "She always asks me, 'Where's the sparkle?'" Watch, Cartier. Ring, Dean Davidson at Supplements NY. Tights, Falke.
