*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″ and starting to show my baby bump. I am petite and also have a high waist and short torso.

Menswear style inspiration from your grandpa

I took style inspiration for this outfit from older men walking down the street, the ones wearing the flat bill cap and V-neck cardigan combo. Have you seen them? It’s such a fabulous look, I had to steal it. Usually it’s a brown cap and brown/beige cardigan I see. To keep things from going too mousy on me, and to add a modern element, I stuck to black and gray bold stripes.  I kept the cardigan fitted and cuffed my skinny jeans to flatter my apple shape.
