The style is flattering on even those with straighter figures, not unlike my own, with a slight flare at the waist. It's only moderately warm on its own but can be easily winterized with the right accessories.
Most female members of my extended family--from age 20 to age 80--own this coat (thanks to me) and all wear it remarkably well. It doesn't age or infantilize the wearer, which speaks to its accessibility and versatility.
I am thrilled that J. Crew decided to bring it back in a dozen colors this fall (also in sunny yellow and light gray, which are not pictured below).
