Â Â Look We Love: We adore the idea of wearing a winter jacket or blazer with any outfit, to flatter almost all post-partum figures. Anyone who has ever seen an episode of TLC’s What Not To Wear knows that a fitted jacket is a swift way to trim down your waistline (while hiding your more negative areas).
Make It Work For You:Try keeping things classic and elegant, like new mother Jennifer Lopez (above), by pairing a fitted blazer or tuxedo style jacket with perfect fit jeans, a sleek blouse, and a fun belt. If you prefer to keep things more casual, try finding aÂ boho chic style of jacket (like the sweater version worn on Nicole Richie, shown above) and pairing with dark wash denim and knee-high boots. Keep this look clean and classy, so the focus remains on your jacket (and not any potential faux-pas).
Â Skip the skirt and pair your jacket with casual denim and fun accessories.
- A Classic Blazer: Satin Trim Exec Blazer from Forever 21 ($27.80), is fun and fancy (just like J.Lo herself).
- A Sweater Jacket: This sleek Ballet V-neck Sweater from Victoria Secret (on sale for $14.99) isn’t actually a jacket, but with a belted waistline and sleek fit…it sure could pass for one!
- A Flattering Jacket: The City Stretch Jacket from New York & Company is not only solid black (which goes with everything) and super comfortable, but it’s small waist and sleek form will make you look lean and put together.
