boxy jacket

InStyle November issue -gathering of 8 boxy jackets:The article just reminded me that I have had one boxy jacket in my closet for a long time. I wore it just a few times, with narrow black pants.
You know that this iconic jacket is a must-have investment piece. This type of cardigan jacket, which has been around since the 1920s, never goes out of style. Boxy jackets may seem challenging because of their shorter lengths, broader shoulders and single or double-breasted styling. The jackets run the risk of making shorter or full-figured gals look dumpy. Figure flaws? Who cares? You’re covered with a perfect hug at the shoulders, which makes this straight silhouette hang just right. So go and feel powerful and confident!
A matching suit? Let's talk!
A tweed jacket works well with a turtleneck, jeans, and heels. At night, metallic looks cool with sleek black pants and pumps.
Some other editors offer advice to pairing boxy jackets with tailored skirts (pleated or pencil) or narrow trousers.
The boxy jacket is one trend that doesn’t need to be toned down for work. In fact, the conservative-chic cut means you can afford to amp up the rest of your outfit — they recommend a little sheer chiffon and downright sexy sandals.
Still it's hard to look modern, not old-fashioned in it.
It's just funny, for my first Sunday outfit look I used at least three more trends: 1) a skinny turtle neck; 2) shiny metallic; 3) pointy toy shoes. All the best at once:))
