FALL '16 FASHION WEEK RECAP: THE BOMBER JACKET & MINI SKIRT

FALL '16 FASHION WEEK RECAP: THE BOMBER JACKET & MINI SKIRT

 

Why do I love this look for petite pears?

  • The Cropped Jacket - As a petite girl with a short torso, I appreciate a cropped jacket because it fits me just right and does not overwhelm my small frame.
  • The Mini Skirt -  Since I'm only 5' 2'' its easy for me to pull of shorter skirts because they fall right at the mid-thigh and show off my legs.

Love this cropped varsity jacket & mini skirt with leather panels! Sometimes the sporty trend can feel a little been there done that,  but paring the jacket & skirt is a great update!

This is not your average bomber/varsity jacket with it's one-of-a-kind details like the palm trees on the sleeves. The side slit in this mini is cool & flirty!

The pairing of this mini skirt with the over-the-knee boots looks so fierce and works well for petites because you can still show off a little leg with this skirt style.

A-line mini skirts are an easy go-to style for petite pears because they flatter your curves and don't make you look short. Also love the geometric-print design on this jacket!

Coach really dominated the runway on this trend! Love how they mixed up this look with a flippy fit & flare mini skirt.

Don't worry this jacket & skirt combo is also perfect for classy events and the workplace. Michael Kors made this ensemble look elegant with the bow blouse paired underneath.

Jason Wu really kicked this look up a notch with the fur collar on the cropped bomber jacket and the bold plaid fabric.

Ok so... this jacket is technically paired back to shorts, but I loved his interpretation of the bomber jacket with floral appliques & tie-front closure so I had to share :)
