Checked Blazer: True or False Tuesday

Older women wear styles that were popular 20 years ago. True or False

True!

Big shoulder pads and boxy men’s jackets were popular in the eighties, and voila! I found this checked blazer at a local thrift shop. It’s Talbot’s made in Italy and 100% wool. This jacket will last another 30 years. The skinny jeansĀ  (apparently a sin for older women) keep the oversize jacket in proportion and creates a taper to the ankle. The fabulously oversized shoulder pads are just an on-trend bonus.

Love, love, love Isabel Marant! Pair your jacket with a graphic tee and colored jeans for an on trend look.
