With so many hot jackets hanging on the racks these days, it can be a struggle to figure out which styles you should add to your wish list. On top of this, it's often downright difficult to find one that fits your body shape. To make things easier, take a look at these beautiful, must-have jackets that work for different body types, then get to shopping!

Trendy Trench

A stylish, classic trench coat with clean lines is just one of those coats that looks great on any body type. Throw one on over a simple dress, like British tennis star Laura Robson did here, or a basic jeans and T-shirt combo to add polish to your look.

If you have an apple-shaped body -- meaning you're curvier around your midsection than anywhere else -- a blazer that buttons right under the bust is a great look for you. Copy Laura Prepon's style and pair this polished look with a sleek pair of black or dark denim pants.

Leather jackets are rocker-chic and hot on everyone, but a structured style with larger shoulders, like the one on fashion fixture Poppy Delevigne, is great for skinny ladies with a rectangular body shape. The structured shoulders will help give you some volume up top, creating the illusion of curves.

Mad for Plaid

Most women can totally pull off a three-quarter length coat -- add a splash of print with a simple plaid like model Florence Brundell Bruce. Keep things timeless by finding a plaid coat in classic colors like red, black, beige, navy, green, etc. Embellishments like buckles and toggles add sophistication.

Another perfect look for pear-shaped women is a cropped jacket or shrug with voluminous sleeves, like the one Solange Knowles is rocking here. Try to keep the rest of your outfit simple, because the sleeves make such a statement on their own.

Add Some Flare

For ladies with an inverted triangle shape -- meaning their shoulders and upper half are broader than the rest of their body -- a jacket that flares out at the waist creates a curvier figure for your bottom half. Go for an edgy look with a jacket like this one from John Paul Gaultier Haute Couture or tone it down to match your style.

Crop It Off

If you're a lady with an enviable hourglass figure, don't hide it in a bulky, shapeless jacket. Show it off with a cropped piece, like the adorable one seen here on Hailee Steinfeld. Shorter jackets are the perfect way to accentuate your small waist and sexy curves.

Belted Beauty

Belted jackets, like the one Australian actress Kimberley Davies is wearing here, nip in your waist and make it look tiny. Opt for one of these if you’re rectangular, as it makes you seem more voluptuous. And if you’ve got an hourglass figure, this jacket will make your small waist and ladylike curves stand out.

Fur coats look luxe on everyone, but a hip-length coat with volume up top -- seen here on model Beth Whitson -- works wonders for girls who want to add a little shape to their normally skinny frame. If you’re curvier or sporting a longer fur coat, add on a belt to cinch your waist.

Nail the Knee-Length Look

Nail the Knee-Length Look

Knee-length coats -- like the one seen here on Donna Air -- are an awesome and trendy way for petite women to add some height by showing off just the right amount of leg. And if you're curvy, a knee-length coat with clean, simple lines will help streamline your look and make you appear leaner.

A knockout, embellished coat with exaggerated shoulders, like the one seen here on Fergie, is a great way for women with pear shapes -- when your bottom half is larger than your top half -- to balance out their bodies for an evening look.

Structured coats with a basic Peter Pan collar and hidden buttons will flatter most body shapes. Look for coats that fit your shoulders. You can tailor the rest to your waistline. A classic coat will look beautiful in many different colors like this white one worn by Camilla Belle; choose one that will complement your wardrobe, work from day to night, and is made from a high-quality fabric. You don't want this one to wear out since it will always be in style.

Alicia Keys looks stunning in an emerald jacket that's thin enough for warm autumn nights and ideal for layering on the cooler ones. Ladies with an hourglass or pair shape like Keys can strut their stuff in this blazer-inspired jacket with gold buttons.
