Fashion Friday-Fitted Black Jacket to Lengthen Short Torso
Today on Fashion Friday I am sharing my fitted black jacket with gold buttons.
It is a great piece to have in your wardrobe. It can be dressed up or dressed down.
A couple of Sunday’s ago I put together this outfit…I call this jacket my “St. Peppers Lonely Heart Club Band Jacket” (The Beatles era for those of you who don’t know) :)
I have had this jacket for a few years now and it is a staple in my wardrobe. I love the fit, the round gold buttons, the detailing on the shoulders and the mandarin color
Even the back has great detailing too! I like how it cinches in the back and gives the illusion that I have a waist!
I think wearing a dark jacket and color on the lower half of me works best to draw your attention down instead up where my very wide shoulders are.
This is such a great jacket…I don’t remember where I bought it..(I think TJMaxx) I am wearing my black and white polka dot silky blouse and a stretchy pink pencil skirt.
Because of the strong button detailing I chose not to wear a necklace with this outfit instead I am wearing black earrings but I don’t think you can see them in any of the pics.
The buttons also draw your eye down instead of across which really helps if you are short waisted like I am.
One other tip…the blouse was too long as usual so I used a skinny black belt to blouson the blouse a little bit and pull it up.
