Jackets, Blazers, and Cardis

With December just around the corner, it finally gets a little cooler in the Philippines! Woot-woot! Due to the very hot and unpredictable rainy months that we have all year, I'll take what I can get and that means donning jackets and layers as soon as I manage to not sweat buckets it's acceptable, because an outfit, no matter how put together, loses the cool factor when you sweat non-stop while in it.

Since we still have limited local options that offer trendy outerwear for the curvy/plus size girls, I just decided to show off my window shopping picks from Forever 21+. While admittedly, F21 don't always produce the highest quality items, they also offer these items at affordable prices (you get what you pay for), so you won't hear me complaining.

 Paneled Faux Leather Jacket and Double Zipper Moto Jacket

 Chain Trim Faux Leather Jacket and Herringbone Tweed Blazer

Leopard Print Cardigan and Lime Boyfriend Cardigan (Comes in Bright Pink too!)

Have you picked out any favorites so far? I'd love to hear about what's currently in your shopping cart. :)

  3. Hi Abi! You are a brave woman for donning jackets in the Philippines! But I'd sweat my makeup off to wear that faux leather jacket over here in Malaysia. You're probably on to something good here.

    1. I strategize before leaving the house by finding out where we're going and if the place has air-conditioning. Haha!

  6. Whew, I think I'd roast to death there, we get a above zero degrees day and it feels like a heat wave! I love your picks here, F21 can have some lovely items from time to time and the bright, patterned cardigans are really fun for brightening up an outfit.

    1. True! Sometimes, the heat seems almost unbearable, but we're used to it by wearing lighter fabrics. It feels like summer here all year round. :D

  7. For the girl who wants to infuse some toughness, I'm definitely fond of moto jackets and bomber jackets. They'll surely be ridiculously warm while also looking tough (without overdoing it). Absolutely nothing wrong with a cardigan on cooler days.

    1. I agree! :D I love how moto jackets add edginess but could be layered with a feminine piece or a simple tee.

    1. Yes! I've been on the lookout for a fitted leopard cardi. I'm so regretting not buying the one I found in Taiwan. :(
