Years ago my Mom used to tell me ALL THE TIME that I should be wearing little jackets. She wore them and they looked so cute on her but I just never tried it. Turns out Mother is always right….once I tried one I've never looked back and now I'm the proud owner of approx 20 jackets of all types - leather, bomber, moto, blazer, tweed but they all have a common theme - cropped and fitted. I swear a cropped jacket is a curvy girls best friend. If you have it tailored properly it will fit perfectly in the shoulders, cover the nipple area but not be able to do up and sit just above or at the hips. Remember I'm speaking for curvy girls right now!!! Boobs and hips - jackets are a great way to tie an outfit together but still emphasis the right areas.
The one I'm wearing in this picture is by IRO who hands down makes my favourite leather jackets and tweed blazers. Don't kid yourself that they are affordable - the regular blazers and little jackets start at around $695 and the leather jackets can go up to $2200 or more (Canadian funds) but I will never get rid of an IRO jacket - they are timeless pieces so more than worth the money. My leather jackets get worn probably on average of 45 times a year and they just get better year after year. I have two fabulous IRO jackets coming for 2017 and I'm excited to show them off - a fabulous silver leather jacket that is such a statement and a gorgeous unlined black and white casual blazer.
This one is so pretty in red and navy and I have combined it with a navy Elizabeth and James sleeveless top and white Joe's Jeans that I cuffed in order to show off the beautiful yet horrifyingly uncomfortable Aquazurra heels. (don't think I'll ever get a sponsorship from Aquazurra) I finished it off with some new Rebekah Price necklaces - she has a bunch of mix and match necklaces this season that are super fun. And always a great pair of sunnies - these are my Diors from 2016 that I still wear all the time.
