The Bomb Jacket

One thing I love about this blog is that it makes me take a hard look at my closet and figure out what to wear.  The biggest benefit?  I find things I haven’t worn in years and make them new again with a little styling fun.  Take this jacket.  It’s Anna Sui for Target circa 2009 (does that make it vintage?)  I haven’t worn it but a few times and it has sat in the back of my closet for at least three years.  Thankfully, it has lasted many a closet edit and I have never given it away or sold it on eBay because I am newly obsessed with it.  You could say it’s the bomb!  Take a look in your closet and see if there’s anything you can recycle next time you’re searching for something to wear.

Pear Shaped Pointer: For ladies with hips (like me) wearing a jacket that tapers in at the waist like a bomber jacket can be a dicey endeavor.  Paired with jeans, it’s likely to cut you off in just the wrong place.  Try pairing it with a flared skirt or over a dress like I am here for a more flattering look.

    I have an ivory motorcycle style jacket that I love. It adds just that right amount of tough to an outfit! Also, I find that wearing high waist trouser jeans with a top tucked in gives that emphasis to my waist that I need. :)

      Great tip, Adrienne! I will try the high-waisted pants with this jacket next!
