Covered Perfectly – review of light weight leopard vest

#over40 Perfectly Covered | High Latitude Style |

Covered Perfectly designs their clothes with women over 40 in mind

Today I want to introduce you to Covered Perfectly who sent me this luxurious light-weight faux fur vest for review. In case you never heard about them, they specialize in clothes for mature women.

What I love about this Covered Perfectly vest

This light weight vest provides just enough insulation to be paired with long-sleeve T-shirts, blouses, layering tops or shirts. This cozy vest has a hood and pockets that are large enough to hold a handkerchief, credit card and car keys. I can put my entire hand into the pocket (see photo below). The vest has a lining that ensures that the vest moves nicely even over more sticky fabrics like the cashmere sweater I am wearing underneath. Thus, no build-up of electrostatic charges which is important when you live in a region with cold and dry winters.

Women designing for women

Behind Covered Perfectly stands a great success story of the American Dream. Being 40+ herself, the founder, Pauline Durban knows well the challenges of women passed their 40s to find the clothes we want to buy to create our signature style. She well understands that showing the three Bs (boobs, belly, bum), arms and legs all at the same time is a recipe for fashion victim at any age. She had the vision to create a company that designs cute, and flattering clothing for women over 40. She invested all her savings to build such a company.

Their collection let’s us highlight our best assets

The Covered Perfectly collection considers that our style is advanced, and that we fully embrace that less is more. We know that show-casting our best feature is much sexier than showing lots of skin. The tops are long enough to cover a tummy or love-handles. Tops have sleeves long enough to cover the problem zones of arms. The fabrics are thin enough to allow stylish layering without adding bulk.

Covered Perfectly items are low maintenance

Moreover, who has ironing as a hobby? Modal fabrics are easy to care for, so we can spend our time on the important things in life. This understanding of the shopping criteria of us 40+ women makes Covered Perfectly a great short-cut to finding separates that make us over 40+ feel attractive, confident, highlight our best feature, and look our best. Some of my friends in the US probably also love to hear that the vest is made in the states.

The fabric is clearly recognizable as faux fur, which is extremely important for all the animal lovers among us. Faux fur on a 40 something that aims at looking real, could be mistaken as such and one might end up can-sprayed. Moreover, it would be much thicker which would add bulk which we don’t want. Furthermore, it would be heavier and drag our shoulders, which would make us look shorter than we are.

The faux fur is extremely soft and is cut short (see photo above). Air is a great insulator, and there is a lot of space for air between the “hairs” of the faux fur. Even better, from a physical point of view, the faux fur has nearly the optimal depths to provide the best insulation one can reach with air in clothing.

This trendy vest is eay to style

This faux fur vest can be styled in many ways as the photos show. I wore the vest with a cashmere sweater underneath to the office once with a plaid skirt, once with a leather pencil skirt. It is very important to wear the hood outside your coat for us 40+ ladies. You don’t want to look like the Hunckback of Notre Dame. The photos above and below show how stylish it looks when you wear the hood outside.

Who should buy the vest

This vest is perfect for women who want to layer to stay warm without adding bulk. The vest is very affordable and a great deal for its quality. I definitively would recommend it to my bff.
