While I love the camel sport jacket all year round, it feels especially appropriate for fall fashion and is one of my closet staples that can be paired with jeans, overalls, or even with faux leather for going out. This sport jacket is one of Express’ classics and the small is almost always sold out, so I was surprised to see that both colors are available in sizes small XS – XXL and on sale! You can also see these expressions on my IG scroll.
These are the same cut as the ankle pants I’ve been loving for the past two years (pictured below in the cream color), now available in soft, lightweight faux leather. If you haven’t gotten on the leather bottoms train yet, these loose fitting shorts can be a less intimidating and more forgiving way to try this trend! Pair them with a simple black tank top and a sports jacket for a regal look for dinner or drinks. I always get asked what the difference is between a Petite and a Short at Express, so I have them try it again on the same garment and the fit and length turns out to be the same! So I alternate between buying their Short and Petite, mostly depending on stock. If you’re looking for faux leather shorts, they have a tailored fit and an elasticized option.
These pants come in three darker shades for fall – black is usually the safest bet, but the butterscotch color of the pair I tried on was actually very pretty and colorful. Here’s how the silhouette sweater undershirt turned out that I shared earlier in this post, and I also wanted to show how these pants look with sneakers and heels.
Open Ex-Boyfriend Jacket
I’ve been wearing this blazer for a couple months now and never saw the xxsp in stock so I bought the xs in a size small and it’s so comfy and there’s room for me to throw a long sleeved top on underneath. I do think it’s TTS so I would recommend sticking with your usual size. This color is the perfect medium camel and is perfect for pairing with a variety of denim whites, blacks or blues to go with my everyday casual outfits.
The material is a smooth woven fabric that is stretchy, cozy and smooth for wearing at home or over a t-shirt or tank. It’s cut so that the sleeves aren’t too baggy and tuck right in at the waist. As you can see below, even the XS petite fit me well in terms of overall length and sleeve length.
