With back to school quickly approaching, I know all of you Fashionista/os are putting together your shopping list of must-haves for the school year. In the midst of all this planning, it’s easy to forget a crucial item here or there, so let me help you out. If not already in your closet, at the very top of your list should be a tailored blazer.
A necessity for every Fashionista/o, blazers can be dressed up or down to fit almost any occasion. The fitted look is great on almost all body types, and it emphasizes the waist to create a flattering shape. One blazer presents endless opportunities, as you can style it to wear for pretty much any event; whether it’s an interview, a casual day of shopping or a night out on the town, you really can’t go wrong with this versatile piece! Another plus is that blazers span the seasons, so unlike those adorable jelly sandals itching their way to the top of your list, you won’t have to put your blazers away when summer comes to an end.
This Fashionista sticks to the basics with her tailored, black blazer. The black blazer has been a girl’s trusty “go-to” piece for many years now, but this Fashionista looks anything but old-fashioned. What I really love about her blazer is the notched, straight-lapels, as it gives the blazer a sharp and trendy look. I’m so used to seeing the conventional button blazer, which can come off as looking a little stuffy and boring sometimes. Seeing a stylish new spin on the classic caught my eye. With her bright coral shirt and necklace, striped pencil skirt and strappy sandals, the blazer ties her look together to help her attain the dressy, professional appearance she is going for.
How To: To achieve a put together look like this Fashionista, try her classic black blazer from BCBGMAXAZRIA and pair it with a bright colored pencil skirt and matching top. For a more casual outfit, style the blazer with a pair of skinny jeans, flats and a fun necklace and you’re ready for a laid-back lunch rather than a professional interview. Want to mix it up? Go for a colored or patterned blazer to really turn heads this upcoming school year!
