h&m bf jackets in size 2

I didn't buy them, but thought I'd share pics of how they fit in case anyone is on the hunt for more petite-friendly, inexpensive bf jacket.

What I like ~
*fits at shoulder
*nips in at waist
*lined inside, and has inside pocket!
*feels, and looks, pretty well made
*since sleeve can be rolled up (also cute to show inner lining), no need to hem

They ranged from $59.99-79.99. Pictured below are all size 2.

This one was a shiny cream material.
Dark grey
Black
LOVE how it's so fitted at the waist and nips in. Much better fit compared to some other jackets I've tried on.
I didn't purchase b/c I would probably only wear once or twice. I adore the bf jacket look, but just not on me. I find it hard to pull off masculine outfits with my face and body type. And it looks "mature", which I hate on myself. Don't get me wrong - I'm not complaining or looking for sympathy. I'm okay with not wearing it, and I accept that it looks better on other people. I actually really like to see certain styles on other people and browsing lookbooks and stuff.

I personally find that bf jackets look best on skinny blondes. It just looks too serious and mature on us brunettes :\

This is how I like the bf jacket to be worn:

With feminine, short lil dress inside

With super skinny bottoms and feminine, deep cut tank

LOVE this. The combo of grey + white, and the sleeves rolled up. Just perfect. Of course, it doesn't hurt that the model is drop dead gorgeous and has a perfect body.

  15. I love the idea of the BF blazer but I think it's too overwhelming for us tiny petites :) I think I have tried on all the other ones you showed! You look really nice in them!!

    I love H & M size 2 blazers! Have several that I wear often! They fit in the waist really nicely and shows off our petite curves!
