What sort of jacket or cardi is a good all rounder to wear in this weather?
One minute I'm cold when the sun goes in and the next I'm baking hot when it comes out again.
I don't suit blazer styles as I have big boobs and big hips and also don't like short jackets, no matter what Gok, Trinny or susannah say.
Any recommendations please, with links if possible.
Many thanks. I'm completely rubbish at clothes. At the pub today I wore dP's black fleece jacket as I only have a boden rainy day mac, which is fleece lined or a Didrikson winter coat. I am confused so any help would be really appreciated.
Yay, that's three votes for jersey blazer! Another one at Uniqlo. I found this shape a bit boxy - might be the same on you if you go in at the middle.
Thing is, I know you're conscious of your weight, but the shapes that suit your figure are pretty much the same whatever weight you are. The difference is you can feel a bit shy about having it all on display when you feel overweight.
But clothes that don't flatter your basic shape are just camouflage, imo, and don't make you look thinner anyway, so what's the point? If you have an hourglass figure you're blessed with the ideal proportions - even if there's more of you than you'd like. Just go with it - you only live once! < old gimmer >
Thanks Juniper. What colour would you recommend? I'm thinking navy, as I'm not good with colour so that's brave of me
Thanks again Shotgun! I know you're right. What you say makes so much sense. I know it's just a confidence thing. Also, I'm very lazy when it comes to things like hair removal so the long skirt was a lazy option as well as a cover-all one.
Navy's a good all rounder. I bought a nice navy one from ebay, goes lovely with jeans. I've ordered the maroon one on there. Then if it's not nice it's not much cash wasted is it and it'll go elswhere. charityshop
