This is the essential wardrobe piece that can take you from work to dinner to a party! It’s not as structured as a blazer, but has more polish and shape than a sweater. It has enough body to hide figure flaws and enhance your good points.
Look for texture and interesting details, and stay with a neutral color like black (of course), gray or navy. Length should be from just above your waist to just below your waist (try on a few to see which flatters your figure best–trust me, you’ll know). Wear unbuttoned over a tunic, tank , tee, or blouse. You may have noticed– it’s no longer necessary to tuck in your shirts. In fact, it can narrow and elongate your waist. Try rolling the cuff for variety-and for the chance to show off a spectacular watch or bracelet! This look goes with work pants or jeans.
