Happy Monday ladies. The more casual my lifestyle becomes the more often I reach for comfy clothes. Anything that binds or feels stuffy has no place in my retirement wardrobe. I like clothes with unique shapes and details which make them stand out from the ordinary while being easy care and easy to wear.
Today I’m sharing the Bee Jacket by Fenini from Artful Home. This jacket is available in several great colors but I couldn’t resist this stunning periwinkle. Depending on your height it can be worn as a dress, jacket or tunic, which I’m styling for you here.
Because I’m petite, it makes a great casual dress over black tights and booties. Its soft fabric is very snuggly without being too warm. I’m one of those women who love pockets in everything and these on-seam ones are in the perfect spot so my hands naturally gravitate to them.
The bubble hem creates a tulip shape through the hip area which floats over tummy and thighs and can hide a multitude of sins. The waist has exposed seamed edging in the front waist and subtle gathers in the back which accentuates the bubble shape.
This Bee Jacket is part of the Artful Home Unwinding Collection which is filled with artist-designed soft clothes with creative touches. Each piece has unique detailing and distinctive silhouettes which can easily take you from work to casual in comfort.
Here I’ve styled it as a jacket over a simple white shirt, black jeans, black booties, and a leopard print belt. Classics topped with a fun piece elevates my look and keeps me from looking like everyone else.
On a blustery day with intermittent showers, I wore it as a long tunic over black leggings and tank with black sneakers. My hair got trashed pretty quickly but the Bee Jacket kept its polish. This was the perfect outfit for running errands on a day I needed to be comfy.
The lantern shaped silhouette is flattering on both straight and curvy figures. I love how it gives my straight figure the illusion of curves where I have none.
I can see this worn over a cotton maxi dress in the spring and over a slim 3/4 skirt in the fall. It will also be awesome over blue or white jeans in the summer. The weight of this jacket makes it a year-round piece that’s versatile and adds pizazz to everything you put it over.
Have you ever tried a knit jacket which adds so many styling options to your wardrobe?
