How I wore Simplicity 1849 Today

The weather in New York today is an unbelievably nice 77 degrees, however, being that my job is sandwiched between the Hudson River and  the New York Harbor... a jacket is required and decided to sport my crop leather jacket with Simplicity 1849.

My initial plan was to sport S1849 with my latest houndstooth skirt, but chucked that and opted for a casual cool look today.  The jacket is from the Loft as well as the pinstripe pants.

Only in the last year have I reacquainted myself with the several rtw crop jackets I own.  Honestly, the way I started out wearing them was atrocious, having a short torso and tucking my blouse inside my pants... ummm yeah... I was urkle bound.  Finally grasped that I must wear my blouse untuck and not too long yield a nic look. 



What is your take on crop cardi/jackets and how do you like to wear it?

The pink is a perfect compliment to your outfit. YOu lookm flirty and yet business like. Now that's hard to do!

I have a belly so I kinda steer clear of cropped garments. You look very nice in them though.

Great look.
I wear cropped jackets and tops the way you do for the same reason.

Beautiduk combination. I wear it same way, I cant even tuck because of the extra tummy fold....

I love the look of a cropped jacket over a tunic or longer tee. I have to really be careful with proportion, though. Being short with a larger bust, I haven't been brave enough to try it!
