Double breasted jacket for a pear shaped womanDouble breasted jackets on pear shaped woman? Does that look good? Yes and no.

Double breasted jacket  a pear shaped womanIt can look good if the double breasted jacket has a very defined waistline. Double breasted jackets add volume around the top, which is not a bad thing for us pear shaped women.
What is also great if it has some embellishments, is in a light color and ends above or below the widest points of the hips. Also, shoulder padding is  a good idea.

Double breasted jacket for a pear shaped woman – an example

This jacket has embellishments – check, the color is creamy white – check, it has a nice decoration on the front and golden buttons – check, it has shoulder paddings – check.. So overall, the jacket is great for a pear shape. (Still I would not recommend buying this one, it is too 80s power suit style, too much shoulder padding and too little waist definition).

PS: Sorry if the posts have gotten small. The new work is demanding and it is difficult to keep up the posts in the previous length only writing on free weekends. I also do not post regularly the brands and sources of my stuff any more. If you are interested in a particular item, just drop me a line.

PSPS: I have stopped taking the pill and now I have really bad problems with acne. I am over 30, this is not fair! On top of that, I tried out mixing different powders for mineral makeup. Anyone faux tan make up? Well, at least I look truly 80s, which matches with this vintage piece. Double breasted jacket pear shaped woman
