Dear Budget Fashionista: I have a question regarding shopping for jackets. I always have a hard time finding blazers/jackets that fit because my upper arms are disproportionately larger than the rest of my body. Any suggestions on what type of jackets I should buy?
Answer: Look for jackets with a Dolman Sleeve or Kimono sleeve. These sleeves tend to be fuller than the sleeve on your standard jacket/blazer (think flared gaucho pants, but on your arms, not legs). Also look for jackets with a bit of stretch (no more than 5% spandex/lycra content), which will give a little more in the sleeve. If all else fails, try a jacket in a bigger size and get it tailored to fit your torso.
