The suit jacket - a favorite to dress up an outfit in a flash- Instant pizzazz with just one item. They should re-name it the auto-confidence-builder, especially when worn with a pair of heels (well, at least for me...)!
Sometimes, I think that even if I haven't had time to put on makeup, or do a full face of makeup, by throwing a suit jacket over whatever I'm wearing, I've just leveled up my look for the day (yes, I am a nerd who enjoys "leveling" things up...in case you were wondering...). Toss on some heels, and I could rule the world (well at least for a few hours...until my toes start getting sore)!
Similarly to my heel post, I think both items (heels and suit jackets) are things that can not only improve an outfit by using one item, but can also improve how you feel about yourself, and I'm all for upgrading your look and confidence level simultaneously!
Here are some of my favorite outfits to improve via "suiting up":
- Sundress = Cute... Sundress + Suit Jacket: Classy
- Jeans/Blouse = Casual ...Jeans/Blouse + Suit Jacket: Chic
- T-shirt+Skirt = Office Ready ...T-shirt/Skirt + Suit Jacket: CEO READY
How do you feel about suit jackets? Do you find them too stuffy? Or are you one of those people that can pull off a band shirt, skinny jeans, chucks, and add a suit jacket for serious swagger points (I'm ALL for that look, even if I can't always pull it off...just FYI...)?
