I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect Camel coat for a couple of seasons. I scored this One in a sale two summers ago but the Boxy fit did nothing for my shape (will be included in closet sale Join the mailing list for details) so I knew I needed to get another one. I remembered vaguely seeing on Instagram that one of the plus models was the face of the new HM studio collection, I was definitely intrigued. By the time I got a chance to check it out online almost everything was sold out, so I made a mental note that when I was in NY for Fashion Week that Id check it out (New York always gets the best stuff 😫).
SHOP THE POST
The entire trip was a whirlwind but on the last day I had some down time between a show and an event so I decided to hit up HM
. As soon as I spotted the Coat
I made a beeline for it and I started praying that the arms would fit, the jacket isnt plus. It fit so well, with room even that I had to Snap about it
Tip: Your outerwear should fit just as well as your clothes try on as many as you need to in order to find the right fit an silhouette why? It’s the first thing anybody sees
SHOP ESSENTIAL OUTERWEAR
is probably one of my fav purchases of the year, so for this look I wanted it to be the star. I paired it with a black base (girlfriend Jeans
and black top), Snakeskin midi boots
and a black saddle bag.
Every woman needs a Wrap coat
, (like This
) it’s the perfect silhouette
for most body types
; because unlike other coats that tend to add bulk the belt on it cinches
you in and creates
. Now if you have a straight
or an Inverted triangle
body type then a Boyfriend coat
will work for you. Another coat that looks great on most is the car coat, finally if you’re pear shaped and even hourglassed shape stay clear of boyfriend styles.Looking for more info on coats, I filmed an Outerwear guide
that should be up shortly on Youtube Subscribe Here
so you know once its up. Also come back tomorrow AKA midnight EST for my Black Friday deals and steals round up.
Finally with all the deals going on, this is truly the perfect time to splurge
on some great outerwear
if you choose to, don’t forget to use your Ebates

How often do you buy Coats? when buying what’s the most important thing after price, style?
