It’s exciting to see some fitted pieces hitting stores for Spring, especially in the blouse and shirt department. And equally fun to see flared trousers and jeans begin to make a fashion statement. Here are some pieces that caught my eye. Remember to look at all the colour options.
- Theory 'Lorem' Belted Four Pocket Cotton Shirt: A safari style soft blousey jacket with self fabric belt. Needs a smooth and slim bottom to complement the look.
- NYDJ Fit Solution Wrap Front Blouse: A fitted wrap shirt with a V-neck collar. Good on an apple shape with a shorter neck. Not clingy but fairly structured.
- Elie Tahari 'Ginger' Draped V-Neck Sheath Dress: Tailored and classic in a fresh aquatic print. Nice length for tall gals. Great on a larger bust and strong shoulder line.
- Lafayette 148 New York Check Print Blouse & Curvy Fit Jeans: Gingham has its moment in a fitted blouse. Good on a long torso.
- Michael Kors Bell Bottom Stretch Jeans: '70s high-waisted flares are fun to wear with a tucked blouson blouse and shirt, or an untucked drape front blouse and welted sweater. A roomy crop top could look fab too.
- Sejour 'Jetsetter' Stripe Ottoman Knit Jacket (Plus Size): Knitted, tailored and stretchy for comfort. Great on an hourglass, pear shape or apple shape.
- Flecked Brighton Trousers: I haven't seen these trousers in person, but they come highly recommended by one of our forum members who likes the way they drape and fit. They are fairly crease-resistant and look professional. I love the lace waistband.
- Eileen Fisher Front Zip Linen Blend Peplum Jacket (Plus Size): A soft, lightweight casual jacket with waist definition is hard to find, but this one could fit the bill. Might run a little large.
- Banana Republic Coated Denim Jacket: The ink blue jacket is a little darker in person and quite fabulous. I love that it is feminine yet quite hard edge which I attribute to its tailored fit. It does not feel rubbery, nor is it distressed. Unique.
- Michael Kors Wrap Shirt & Skirt: Gorgeous statement waist definition. I love that the blouse is roomy but cinched at the waist.
- Sejour Geometric Jacquard Peplum Jacket (Plus Size): Fab on a petite apple or hourglass. Slimming, structured and comfortable.
