Fashion Dos and Dont’s: The Jacket

1.  Do get measured for a custom fit.  Tip: Some department stores have a free alteration service.

2.  Do look for this season’s “Boyfriend” jacket.  Longer and boxier, this trend gives a nice contrast to a frilly blouse.

3.  Don’t be quick to throw out your old jackets; alterations, new buttons, trims, and a little creativity just might bring these oldies back to life.

4.  Don’t always match your jacket to your skirt or slacks.  Try a dark one with a light bottom or a light one with a dark bottom.  Color is good, too!

5.  Do look for unique jackets in trendy boutiques.  These pieces can end up being staple wardrobe items.

6.  Do spend more on suits.  The better fit will pull you together like nothing else.

7.  Don’t pass up that cute, leather jacket in your favorite color.  Color trends come and go; you might not see it come around for awhile.

8.  Do look for classic pieces at Goodwill or thrift stores.  I once found a vintage, black velvet jacket for $3.00.

9.  Do belt a classic blazer with your favorite scarf for a pop of color.

10.  Do look for A-line trenches if you are pear-shaped.

About Kellie R. Stone

"I make no excuses for my diverse roles as a Rock Your Feminine Type Coach™ and Branding Expert, best-selling author, and crime thriller novelist. Yes, I do still chuckle a bit at the irony. I kick ass as a women’s biz coach by day and kill off vulnerable fiction characters at night. What the hell, it makes for some interesting dreams. I believe that everyone should pursue their passions no matter how out there they seem to be. One of those pure heart-fluttering passions for me has always been writing. Since I did, indeed, chase my dream of being a writer, I've published two non-fiction books in the self-development genre, co-authored an international best seller, and now I'm finally pushing my much-too-old-to-be-in-the-nest novel out the door and into the world. My whole world is empowering and I adore showing others how to live life unfiltered, whether I do that through the written word or my coaching work. I love my job!" ~Kellie R. Stone
