I rarely purchase anything during the fall season since the golden hues are not flattering on my skin tone, but I recently found three items to add to my collection. Shopping tip: The cool, clear colors of the winter season are perfect for those of us with blue undertones.
The fully lined knit jacket’s style is very forgiving, and the eggplant color is flattering on almost everyone. I avoid knit blazers which quickly lose their shape. However, the seamed style of this casual jacket is very comfortable and versatile. I can throw it on over faded jeans and sneakers to run to the grocery store or take it up a few notches with black slightly bootcut jeans, as I’ve shown you here. The hero pieces are the ones you can wear in many ways, but they always make you feel like the best version of yourself.
I have always enjoyed wearing a vest, so I know this one will get a lot of use. It is linen, fully lined, and has a collar. It’s almost like wearing a blazer without the bulk. A vest is flattering on my inverted triangle shape because it breaks the volume of the upper body into smaller vertical lines.
Jeans here. Top here. Similar bag here. Shoes here. No-show sock liners are here. My lip color in these photos is Little Black Dress here.
I’ve owned countless striped tops, but my favorite continues to be slightly oversized with a primarily white background and thin black lines. The versatility of a classic stripe top offers unlimited styling possibilities. Another style bonus that makes this top a winner is the scooped neckline. I buy a larger size for a relaxed fit when I plan to wear them without another layer. I am wearing a Chico’s size 2 here. Tip: Wash your striped tops with light colors.
If you’ve read the posts here for a while, you already know that I am mostly retired and only purchase things I intend to wear often. In that regard, I am different from many other bloggers. I do not accept free merchandise to advertise here. Everything I show you is something I purchased with my own money after much consideration. It must have a purpose in my wardrobe and blend well with almost everything else I own.
