life in the moment | makeover around jackets, cardigans and vests. (I call these “third pieces.”) A third piece balances the shape of the body, flatters all figures, camouflages and highlights strategically, gives us lots of flexibility to create other outfits and elevates the look of professionalism. Here are the outﬁts that made the cut on the day of the photo shoot: Our first outfit features a long, shapely teal cardigan that buttons just at the bust. Underneath, I’ve layered a sorbet multi-coloured print blouse that peeks out from the cardi, giving a fresh, face-flattering boost of colour. Our cranberry ballet flats in one of Jodi’s favourite colours complete the look right down to her toes! The deep V of the necklines and necklace create the illusion of a stronger shoulder and more whittled waist. Jodi loves nature and fell in love with our next outfit, featuring a silky exotic botanicalprint top! Both elegant and comfortable, this key piece works beautifully with the narrow-leg black pant you see here (by Tan Jay) or a pair of dark-wash jeans. A little bit of polish has been added with the blush-coloured, unstructured blazer and super-comfy grey flannel wedges. Preparing for chillier days ahead, we were inspired to create a stylish outdoor look that Jodi can feel great wearing on weekends! A terrific leopard-print, grey-and-black zip-front tunic has a high collar that frames her face, is fitted through the bust and rib cage, flattering all the right places (wink, wink) AND is super roomy and feminine around the bottom and hips, with pleated pockets.
