*Will this outfit work on your body type? All my outfits emphasize flattering an apple shape -wider shoulders/narrow hips. In this picture I am 5’1″ 143lbs. I am petite and also have a high waist and short torso.
Autumn outfit ideas: What to do with that billowy top sitting in the back of your closet
You know that billowy top that you thought was a good idea– it’s loose, it’s comfy, it’s long, and the material is stretchy and thin? Yeah that one. It looks good on pear shapes for sure. On an apple shape it only makes us look more top heavy than we already are. I never knew what to do with it… until I paired it with this fitted, cropped moto jacket.
It’s billowy feature works well sitting around my mid-section, and it’s long length works well with elongating my torso. It just needed something fitted and dark to frame it. I love wearing it with a fitted boot cut jean and peep toe chunky heels. This simple outfit calls for a bright red beanie.
Where you can get items similar to what I’m wearing
My boot cut pants are from Cabi. Contact a local Cabi representative for a jean fitting.
I scored this pleather moto jacket from Target many years ago. I tend to like a flat front moto jacket as opposed to the traditional moto jacket with the giant front collar laying on the bust area. The flat front looks more streamlined. Here are some similar styles:
These are some great round beanies to choose from:
Here are some similar gray peep toe booties I also think look chic:
And if you don’t already have a billowy thin striped top in the back of your closet, here’s a similar one to mine.
