If years ago anybody had told me that K-mart would be placing ads in Vogue magazine to promote their fall line I'm sure I would've fallen flat on my... hhmmm behind. But things do change! Available now at K-mart - Fashion Forward Fall 2010. Military jackets, Skinny jeans & Rocker Chic Bomber jackets are at hand's reach at your local stores. Very reasonable prices! Nothing is more than $100.00. I have to admit, K-mart has never been my first choice when I think of shopping for clothing, but this line has put them on my top 20 for sure!
Kathy Huynh, VP of Women’s Apparel Design, says “We want fresh fashion that’s on-trend but also understandable and affordable. It’s about buying those few new pieces and incorporating them into your wardrobe to give everything else a fresh lift.”
Now that coat season is almost here, I want to talk about my favorite style of coat - The Military Jacket. There is something very nostalgic about Military jackets that makes me love them. The Sgt. Pepper style makes them both casual or elegant but always fabulous, which is the reason I love to wear them. If you need to go with the casual look: depending on how cold it is outside, you can wear a shirt underneath, skinny jeans and you may wear flats (I don't think I have flats, but that's what works for me) or flat boots. This same look can work with a cute skirt and leggings. Make sure your jacket is the same length or a little shorter than your skirt. If you need a more elegant look: make sure the jacket is buttoned, wear pants (dark jeans work too), high heels - they don't have to be 4 inches - and give it a nice touch with a scarf or a hat. The idea is to let the jacket be the center of attention. You won't need a lot of accessories since usually the buttons on the jacket serve this purpose.
Go check out your local store, and if you buy something, send me a picture! Would love to see how you are pairing your fabulous Jackets. Happy Shopping!
Stay tuned. In the next few weeks I'll be blogging about H&M's 2010 Collaboration with Lanvin!! Ohh the anticipation is so big, I may go camping in front of the store the night before! See you next week.
