The wrap jacket.

To me, there’s nothing more feminine about our bodies than our waist. The waist is the element that makes the female’s hourglass silhouette and cinching it with a tiny belt makes all the difference in giving a woman some shape. I’ve always been inspired by classic style icons like Audrey Hepburn who always made a point to look graceful and soft – and most of her outfit choices are ones which accentuate the waist (btw did you know her waist is abnormally small – she grew up in poverty and apparently does not eat much as a habit – swear I didn’t make that up, it was in her book).

I wish more local designers made wrap tops / wrap dresses and am happy to have found this kimono wrap jacket to keep me warm in my cold office!

Wearing wrap jacket (detachable belt if you prefer a loose look) from Mimpikita, flats from Nelissa Hilman, mens watch from Daniel Wellington and Milkshake satin silk scarf from dUCk, all FashionValet.
