The Structured Life

Standard

A must have for everyone’s wardrobe, men and women alike – The Blazer.

I know many of you think a blazer belongs in the office, are uncomfortable, and give you shoulders like Tim Tebow.  Rest assured,  if you think these things, you are dead wrong!  Not only is menswear the hottest trend in ladies fashion right now, but a solid, structured blazer is a classic piece and should be a staple in everyone’s wardrobe.  It anchors any outfit taking you from daytime casual, to work,  and into evening.

Take this black boyfriend blazer for example…

Daytime Casual

Think grabbing lunch or running errands. Try pairing with a bold stripe or graphic tee,  a dark wash denim, and some flats. Simple accessories and a statement handbag finish the look!

At Work

Paired with a dress pant (I chose a black super skinny, but bright colored slacks or a wide leg trouser would also work) and a fun all over print blouse is perfect for the office. Grab some heels for some extra power!

Evening

Have a date after work? This animal print dress, clutch and accessories could fit easily in your over sized work tote or just stash in your car. You’ve already got on your power heels, so just let your hair down, re-apply your Maybelline Baby Lips and you’re ready to go!

One blazer, three looks.  Piece of cake!

The One Hit Wonder

How about that super dressy blazer you bought for that interview and haven’t worn since? Try pairing with your fave band tee, some cute flats, and a pop of color for a cool & casual weekend look.

Try A Trend!

Pale pink is predicted to be this Spring’s biggest trend. This pink number ($44.90 at Dynamite stores)  is a rayon and spandex blend, so not only is it stylish, but wears like a cozy cardigan.  Pair with distressed denim and a printed scarf for a movie date or shopping with the girls.

* 2 things to keep in mind… 1. shoulder pads can ALWAYS be removed! 2.  If  it’s uncomfortable, it’s probably too small.  Try the next size up! If you’re in-between sizes just have it tailored.  It’s inexpensive and worth every penny.

Happy Shopping!
