Did you see John Varvatos, one of the Mentors on Fashion Star wearing a jacket similar to this last week, and I see he is also wearing it on his bio? Can you ask for more than androgyny, a jacket that you can dress up or down, and can you get any more on trend than John Varvatos?
Yours Clothing, a plus size store in the U.K. was generous enough to send me this Military Jacket and the best thing about it, for me, is that their UK Size 30-32 fits my US size 26-28 body and I love a tailored look. The arms are a good fit for me as are the shoulders, so it is very comfortable and you know that is important to me. And it is 100% cotton, which means that in the cool San Francisco Bay area I will be able to wear it most evenings since the temperatures stay in the 60°s here. I have always been a pacifist so I think more of it as a “band jacket” but regardless, it is everywhere this season, and now it comes in our size.
I thought you might also like to see my necklaces. The top and bottom ones are my husband’s grandfather’s watches (which I like to soften the military look and it keeps it in the right fashion era). And the middle pendant is a brass logo of an art piece that is being made for Burning Man this year, Truth is Beauty.
Here are the original photos of the jacket, just so you can see a little more detail. There are epaulets on the shoulders, with buttons and similar details in the back although it is dfficult to see in the photo.
Lots more to come from Yours Clothing, and maybe even a DIY glam version of the jacket from me, and some flirty little dresses (or tunics as they like to call them in the U.K.)
