The more casual my lifestyle becomes the more often I reach for comfy clothes. Anything that binds or feels stuffy has no place in my retirement wardrobe. I like clothes with unique shapes and details that make them stand out from the ordinary while being easy care and wear.
Today I’m sharing the Bee Jacket by Fenini.
This jacket is available in several great colors, but I couldn’t resist this stunning periwinkle. Depending on your height, it can be worn as a dress, jacket, or tunic, which I’m styling for you here.
Because I’m petite, it makes a great casual dress over black tights and booties. Its soft fabric is very snuggly without being too warm. I’m one of those women who love pockets in everything, and these on-seam ones are in a perfect spot that my hands naturally gravitate to.
The bubble hem creates a tulip shape through the hip area, which floats over tummy and thighs and can hide a multitude of sins. The waist has an exposed seam in the front and subtle gathers in the back that accentuate the bubble shape.
This Bee Jacket is part of the Artful Home Unwind Collection, which is filled with soft, artist-designed clothes with creative touches. Each piece has unique detailing and distinctive silhouettes that can easily take you from work to casual in comfort. This jacket is designed and made in the USA from a soft cotton-spandex fabric that holds its shape, making it perfect for downtime and travel.
Here I’ve styled the Bee Jacket over a simple white shirt, black jeans, black booties, and a leopard-print belt. Topping classics with a fun piece elevates my ensemble and keeps me from looking like everyone else.
On a blustery day with intermittent showers, I wore the Bee Jacket as a long tunic over a tank and black leggings with black sneakers. My hair got trashed pretty quickly, but the jacket kept its polish. This was the perfect outfit for running errands on a day when I needed to be comfy.
The lantern-shaped silhouette is flattering on both straight and curvy figures. I love how it gives my straight figure the illusion of curves where I have none.
I can see this worn over a cotton maxi dress in the spring and over a slim three-quarter skirt in the fall. It will also be awesome over blue or white jeans in the summer. The weight of this jacket makes it a year-round piece that’s versatile and adds pizazz to everything it’s layered with.
