You should have at least one boucle jacket in your closet. Boucle is very chic and can dress up a pair of black pants or a black skirt very easily. Boucle jackets come in a variety of colors.

Skirts are longer, falling either just above knee or just below knee. You’ll find skirts with asymmetric cuts, ruffles at bottom, or with a free flowing feel. Why not add a flowery or ethnic print skirt to your collection. Pair it with a jean jacket in blue, pink or white for extra pizzazz.
5 Tips for a Great Fashion FitWritten by Donna Monday
Ladies, have you ever been in a department store dressing room and talked yourself into buying an outfit that looked great – on someone else?
Face it. If it doesn’t fit right in dressing room, it won’t fit well or look good when you wear it out in public. Here are five quick and easy tips to remember when buying clothes that look good and fit well on your body type.
Tip #1 – Stick to a Color Theme
Wear same color from head to toe. This will create illusion of a long lean line. Neutral colors work best for this effect: black, brown, camel or cream. (Note: add a splash of color with a jacket or wrap)
Tip #2 – Wear Your Correct Size
Dress in size you are – not size you want to be. In spite of what you might believe, wearing clothes that are too tight or too big will make you look LARGER.
