Take your pick of black jackets

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.

When shoulders are the widest point of your body then you’ll need to create width further down to balance them out. You can do this with the peplum jackets that have been around at the moment. For example:
