My jacket 2 ways


I was looking through my closet one evening last week and wanted to wear my Jak and Rae jacket the next day to work. I started trying on different options. I wanted to keep the theme of a nice jacket with a simple v-neck T. I love the look. It's comfy and it looks good. I was so surprised of the outcome that I decided to document the results with the pics attached. Both outfits are slimming for me and all the pieces that I am wearing are basics that I can use all year round. They are "must haves" in any wardrobe.
The Basics here are...

1. Black and white tee,
2. A straight leg dark wash pair of jeans,
3. black and white heels ,
4. A pencil skirt.
5. A jacket in a neutral color that is cut properly. This means that the jacket comes in at the waist and has pleats to give your chest room.
The jacket looks more formal without the belt. But looks beautiful either way. All the items shown in the pictures can be bought at very affordable prices. The bulk of the money should be spent on the skirt and the jacket. The quality and cut of the jacket will set the mood for the outfit.

By the way... I decided on the jacket with the white top and shoes with jeans, since it's Summer in New York I thought that the white accented outfit gave me more of a summer airy feel.

This is funny, I like the one with the skirt much better. I guess they're both amzing in they're own way. I find the skirt more slimming if that's what you're going for, but you my dear you do not need to search for slimmimg clothes you are beatifully slim, the way you are.
