This spring, we've been lucky enough to have a surplus of sunny days in Seattle. However, today was not one of them. No, today was the rainy and gray Seattle that we all know and love. On this misty afternoon, the streets were not filled with skirts, sandals or floral dresses. Instead they were once again filled with a lot of black puffy jackets. But one outfit stood out to me. It was this Fashionista's outfit, comprised of skinny jeans, oxford-like flats, a white blouse and a bright red blazer, that brought a little light to this dreary day.
This Fashionista's cherry-red blazer is by Sparkle and Fade and was found at Urban Outfitters. Lucky for us, red blazers are aplenty and can be found at a number of trendy stores. I love this inexpensive round-hem blazer, which is from Forever 21. However, I adore the structured fit of this coral red blazer from Tobi. Her skinny jeans are J Brand, while her blouse is one of Urban Outfitters' renewal vintage pieces. As for the shoes, these fine leather flats are by Rive Gauche and are a memento from a trip this Fashionista took to Italy. But I also love this slightly similar pair of leather flats from ASOS with their modern laser cut-out design.
I love how this Fashionista uses her red blazer to dress up an otherwise casual street outfit. In addition, this outfit has just enough class and elegance with the addition of this Fashionista's Neiman Marcus “love” necklace, Tiffany stud necklace, Michele watch and bangles from her sister.
Red blazers can be worn in a number of ways, but there is nothing more chic than pairing it with your best-fitting skinny jeans, a white blouse and your favorite pair of shoes.
Remember that no matter what, you should always dress the way you want. There are no rules in fashion.
