What DO I Wear: The Blazin’ Blazers Edition
Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening. ~ Coco Chanel
Since I was a teenager (which is a scary thought) I have loved blazers. As a nineties baby, I grew up in an era of Abercrombie and Express where stylish grunge and clunky were the trends. Their was something glamorous and mature about a blazer that appealed to my hormonal driven angsty self. I wanted to be taken seriously and nothing is more ball busting then a suit jacket.
As I have aged – gracefully, hopefully- blazers haven’t just appealed to me for the “I am woman” of the business world, but also because of the chicness they give to any outfit.
I have paired a blazer with ripped jeans, dresses, skirts, and yes suits. Blazers aren’t the typical black or pinstripe, they once were. I have blazers in stripes, with ruffles, long, cropped, and caped among many styles. Designers are constantly giving this staple piece an updated look.
Recently I just bought a long powder blue called the Boatman Blazer from Anthro, an online exclusive, it was also on sale! I love a fashionable steal.
Once you find the right one and right fit, your look will go from drab to fab instantly! Here are some of my favorite blazers – Including the Boatman – and yes most of them are from Anthro. I did cheat on them by adding the girlie lace jacket from Bloomies. I am obsessed with the delicateness and femininity!
