1940s Teal, Red and Tan Checked Sports Blazer, by Thorntons, 40in Bust
Gordon bennett, someone buy this quick before I change my mind. Everything about this 1940s sports blazer is amazing.....the colours are so wonderfully complimentary but also unusual, this is not your average jacket! The shoulders are a little less pronounced on this, for ease of movement during your leisure time I suspect, but the nipped waist is still classic of the decade. The curved pockets accentuate the curve of the hip and the hem, so flattering for your figure, and the modest V-neck is not too low. The outfit options are endless, thanks to the colour and classic shape, and don't feel you must wear it with only true vintage. This would work with your favourite jeans and boots too. It will see you through many seasons, and many more decades to come.
