Before this winter season, I’ll admit it, a camo jacket was a little intimidating. I mean, I’ve seen girls rock them (the Kardashians are known for it) and they look really sexy and chic, but for me it took me a while to figure out how to wear this bad boy. What I’ve landed on (which I usually say in all my posts and you definitely know if you have read my blog before) is you should always try to find the balance between feminine and edgy (camo jacket being the edgy piece).
When thinking how to wear a camo jacket, I decided I really wanted to wear heels to add that feminine balance. I’m shorter, so big jackets can be overwhelming – the height adds a longer leg to balance out the material on top.
I was sent this camo jacket by a really fantastic boutique in New York, Twenty5a.com. They’re out of their camo jacket but I’ll be linking some others I really love. I’ve actually been considering getting another one that’s a little less bulky too.. Twenty5a.com is also worth a look as well – they have some really cute bomber jackets in stock and I also love this velvet dress for Valentine’s Day. When checking out a brand, I love looking at their Instagram first as that’s where you’ll see all of their pieces styled in different ways.
One more note on the picture above, I’m wearing my new Daniel Wellington watch in Classic Black and a matching cuff. The quality is really good and these pieces are timeless. They’re offering Style Wax Poetic readers 15% off with code STYLEWAXPOETIC.
After putting this look together, I soon realized these jeans have become a favorite – I can’t get enough of high-waisted jeans in may life! They go with everything and are so flattering. I almost didn’t keep these jeans because I thought the rips may be a little too edgy and I felt like they flatted my backside (now who wants that?! ha). However, I’ve received an endless amount of compliments. They’ve been worn into the ground over the last few weeks! See below all the different colorways they have in this style.
