CAROLYN THE PETITE HOURGLASS: LAYERED LOOK

CAROLYN THE PETITE HOURGLASS: LAYERED LOOK

 

Style Cliff Notes:

Sweater - Monki

Blouse - Joseph

Pants – Forever 21

Shoes – Rachel Zoe

 

Extended Style Notes

Monki Cropped Sweater – Size XS

What she loved…

  • Crop silhouette - She loves how this sweater defines her waist and it looks so flattering on her hourglass figure!  She likes how versatile the sweater is - it can be worn alone or with flowy shirts/dresses underneath.

 

Joseph Blouse - Size IT40 / US 6

What she loved…

  • Clean, relaxed silhouette ­ - Carolyn loved the loose flowy fabric of this blouse because it’s very comfortable and easy to wear.

What could be better...

  • Very long - Although she normally likes to wear blouses tucked in, It’s hard for her to wear this blouse tucked in because it's so much fabric. Therefore, she usually wears this blouse layered under a sweater or another top. One lesson she learned from buying this Joseph blouse was not to size up. She wishes that she bought a size IT38.

 

Forever 21 Pants – Size 26

What she loved…

  • Perfect length - Most Forever 21 pants are the perfect length for her. These ones are just the right length for her to tuck in booties or wear with sandals/heels! (Generally pants with a 27’’ inseam fit her well).

 

Body measurements:

Height = 5'4"
