One of my main objectives when shopping for outerwear is to pick pieces with an interesting shape and minimal frills. I gravitate towards moto and utility jackets because moto cuts usually have sharp lapels and flat buttons and utility cuts have cinched waists and a longer length to elongate the torso. A peacoat doesn’t work on my apple-shaped body because they usually look too square, and straight coats that hit the knee make me look short.
This jacket creates an interesting shape when open, and conceals my larger tummy and broad shoulders. I think the triangular shape of the hem creates a narrower torso, and just looks so damn cool. Like, let’s go to London and have beers at a pub after we attend this underground rock concert in an abandoned warehouse cool.
God that sounds fun.
Prepare to see a lot of these Sam & Libby boots. I can’t seem to take them off. High school Leah would be proud of adult Leah right now.
