This Fashionista was on her way to class when her bright floral blazer caught my eye. Her blazer is a good example of a piece that is easy to wear in transition from the end of summer and into fall. She paired her statement blazer with a statement necklace which she told me that she found at a vintage shop! Both pieces are bold but this did not cause the look to seem too overwhelming. This outfit worked because both items had a vintage feeling or flare to them. Take inspiration from this Fashionista if you’re looking for how to pair two statement pieces when you’re feeling bold!
