Outfits for work: a vest creates a vertical line for the torso and horizontal lines on the skirt widen the lower half.

*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′ 140lbs. I am petite and also have a high waist and short torso.

Outfits for work – I’m obsessed with belted cardigans and vests

If you’ve seen any of my other outfits for work related posts, you know I’m a huge fan of stretchy wide belts with cardigans and vests. Here’s one. Here’s another.

So the obsession continues with this outfit post and now a gray vest. Here’s a similar one if you’re in the market. Or if you’re looking for a more casual one, I love that this one has a hood!

Wide stretch belts are for cinching the waist but still being comfortable. I’ve tried this outfit with a skinny belt and it doesn’t look as flattering.  This one is very close to what I’m wearing.

Where you can find other items similar to what i’m wearing

Every apple shaped gal has an arsenal of black 3/4th sleeve tops that aren’t too short. But in case you need one, I love that this one also has a scoop neck to elongate the neck. It also has a nice draped silhouette (read: not clingy) and a high-low hemline.

This pencil skirt is also gray and black with stripes, but a little longer.

And I could not be more in love with these booties.

I wrote about why and featured them in this post as well.
