MOVING INTO FALL WITH A CINCHED-WAIST JACKET LAYER
This was an outfit I wore for dinner out with my husband. It’s still really warm here (in the upper 80s to lower 90s Fahrenheit), so I wanted the look of fall without too much weight. We sat indoors with air-conditioning, so my layers worked out well.
I like this jacket because it’s faux suede (so it’s light weight), and it has a cinched waist. That gives the illusion of an hourglass, which flatters the figure. It also adds interesting detail.
In this post, I show what it looks like both open and closed. Either way, it defines the narrowest part of the torso, and I love that!
This particular jacket is no longer at Nordstrom, where I bought it originally. But I did find it elsewhere on line (the photos there do not do it justice), and it’s marked down quite a bit. It was $240 at Nordstrom but is now $67.20 at this site. So if you’re interested in it, you might want to nab it sooner rather than later. Same with the cute matching-color interchangeable-strap sandals. (The other strap is a leopard print!) As for the denim shirt and white jeans, I found nearly identical matches to those. See the links to everything, including my makeup and new lipstick, at the bottom of this page.
Hope your fall is a lovely one so far.
