Following on from my last blog entry. I’m looking at some good black jacket choices around.
If you have a pear shape body type like me, then you’ll want a jacket that doesn’t cut off at your widest point: hip area and also perhaps a shoulder or neck detail that will balance out your hips. This little black jacket I’m wearing has got a little gathering in the shoulders, nips in at my waist and is shorter than my hips.
This little jacket is a great little cropped shape.
If you are a colomn shape – long, slim and angular; go for a double breasted jacket so you widen out your body and also one that nips in at the waist.
If you are a colomn shape – wide and straight; you need a jacket that nips in at the waist. Go for a single breasted jacket to ensure you don’t widen your figure. If you can find a jacket that has a fake or real waistband at the waistline then this will help with creating a waistline when your jacket is done up.
