First, make sure you’ve got a nice, unstructured blazer.
- distressed jeans
- a plain white tee, front tucked
- a tote, for some color + texture
- ankle booties, for some cool factor
- minimal accessories, for some glimmer
And you’ve got yourself a cool look.
With a blazer! That doesn’t look stuffy!
Who would have thought? :)
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve tried to wear blazers — and failed. I loved them on other people, but then when I’d put them on they just didn’t feel like me, you know?
I think my problems with them in the past stemmed from the fact that I’d bought the wrong blazers.
They were either the wrong color for my taste (hello bright orange blazer — what was I thinking?) or the wrong style for my daily life (hello shoulder pads + stiff fabric) or the wrong fit for my body type (oh hey, cropped forever 21 blazer — yeesh).
But now I get it: all blazers aren’t created equal + it takes a bit of experimenting and patience to find the right one.
