How I Style

First day back to work in 2012. Oh, it’s always so hard to come back to reality, isn’t it?

Well it’s a new year so I have a new topic. How I Style… blazers. I’ve styled my cardigans for seven weeks now, so I thought I’d switch it up and show you how I’ve worn my inexpensive blazers for work.

This will be a short little post as I feel very corporate and businesslike workin the red blazer. I haven’t found an ideal way to dress it down just yet. But this is the way I’ve been styling it for the time being.This blazer was originally over $100 at Mexx. I never noticed it until it was on the sale rack for $40. It’s made of a really thick wool and there were a few other colors to choose from like grey and black. I’m somewhat kicking myself for not picking up the grey one. But from what you see below, I clearly don’t wear it often enough. I really dislike the middle look. I look like a middle-aged boss lady. Ew. My favorite has to be the one on the left, just paired everything all simple-like with black, and making the blazer pop on its own.

How would you pair this?

  1. I love the blazer ! I think it would look nice with dark jeans and I believe I saw that you have brown/tan color boots before on here? I could be totally wrong haha. Maybe that’s a fashion faux pas or something because I barely know how to dress myself – if it isn’t grey or black I basically don’t wear it but I’m so jealous because you can pull off so many different looks!

  2. My favorite look is also the far left, with the skinny black pants. It would look nice with a pair of dark jeans, and you could dress it down a bit with some boots.
