Military-Inspired Jackets

{image a la Atlantic-Pacific}

When I’m not babbling on about fashion, clothes, shoes, and other ground-breaking world events, I play a lawyer. I’m petite (whatever that awful word means), and my signature look is the dress, tights, and cardigan combo. Try as I might to venture, I stick with this ensemble.

But in a law office, clients pop by all.the.time., and I can’t risk looking like a seven year-old. So I’m working on adding structured jackets to the mix. I’m sticking with structured jackets for two very practical reasons: (1) petite implies that I am less than busty – the implication is entirely true – I melt away in big shouldered numbers – so fitted I go, and (2) structured is way more fashionable – I reserve boxy attorney jackets for only the most formal of federal court hearings (shaking in my conservative pumps.)

My latest jacket crush – the military-inspired blazer. Ever in style, military buttons and bold piping are right up my fashion alley.
