a new tux jacket

I'm into all the new jackets these days, relaxed boyfriend jackets, shrunken jackets, tux jackets, what a great and stylish way to both keep warm and hide anything.

Piperlime now has a great selection in a range of prices, starting with this tux-inspired version under $100 -

The same brand also makes an inexpensive relaxed, double breasted boyfrend jacket -

Personally, I think the shrunken jacket is a more universally flattering look. It adds curves if you need them, or hides a multitude of sins. You can throw either jacket over something as simple as a t-shirt, and make it look special.

This is a Central Park West ponte jacket, I would probably wear this every day over everything, think of it like a much better shaped sweatshirt...

This Marc by Marc Jacobs stretch wool version is pricey but great - check out the waist,

Love them all...
