How to Build Your Outwear Collection with VIPme

Over the years I have built up a pretty solid collection of outerwear. It is one piece of clothing that I don’t mind splurging on because you can actually wear it often without being tagged as an outfit repeater. I’ve always loved outerwear because wearing a gorgeous coat makes me feel powerful. We all have that one thing that we wear that brings out another level of confidence. For some women it’s a bold red lip, or a mile high stiletto, but for me it’s a great coat.

When VIPme reached out to me about a Fall collaboration, I didn’t even have to think about it. They have the best selection of outerwear at the most amazing price points. Since I have been posting lately about all of my favorite styles in outerwear, I wanted to share a few ways that I select my pieces.

My secret to finding the best selection in outerwear is simple: keep it classic. Start building your collection with the basics. Every woman needs a camel coat, a black car coat, and a trench. I prefer to stay within the neutral colors of camel, black, gray and navy when I am shopping for a piece I know I will be wearing often.

When it comes to silhouette, make sure you are picking something that is flattering for your body type. I am partial to coats that fall either just above my knee or just below it. I also go for a coat that has a tailored waist or a trench coat that I can tie like this one. Since I have an hourglass figure it’s always important for me to highlight my waist so I won’t get swallowed up in the coat.

A trench coat is universally flattering, since it can create the illusion of a waist if you have more of an athletic figure, or highlight the narrowest part for an hour-glass when you cinch the belt. I also love to wear my trench coats open in the front with the belt tied in the back. This is not only slimming, but elongating, which I need.

I have worked with VIPme in the past and I love their selection. This navy suede trench coat might just go down as one of my favorites ever! The color is so rich and beautiful and the material is so soft that I even kept it on when I got back to the house. It feels like you are wearing a cozy robe, but you actually look chic! The best part of this coat? It is under $70 dollars! I love when I find a coat that feels and looks expensive but doesn’t break the bank. It’s always an immediate buy.

    I love the suede! I bought my very first trench not too long ago, and I agree, it definitely is a staple! I will have to invest in a few others to expand my collection!

    Love that navy on you, and like you said, it looks super flattering and doesn’t ‘swallow you up’ like a lot of coats too! <3
