My latest installment of structured piece for fall 2010 is something EVERYONE needs in their closet all year round; structured blazers!
They are classic, timeless, and can create a sleek shape like nobody’s business. Although they can look a little “stuffy”, you can avoid all that by pair them with flowy skirt, baggy shorts, or a wide leg trouser that would put the chicest business woman to SHAME!
Anyway, hopefully these structured jackets help give you an idea!
Excuse my absence yesterday, but I didn’t have to come to the office yesterday and Mother nature rewarded us Memphians with a sunny day in upper 50s! So, needless to day, my BF and I decided to enjoy it.
It was so nice to be able to leave the house without bundling up in 2-3 layers of outerwear. All I did was grab my simple black blazer and a nice pashmina scarf and it was just enough warmth for a fabulous day or enjoying life.
However, what would have made me and the day a little more fabulous is if I would have been able to rock this affordable piece of hotness, purple label’s ray leather sleeve jacket!
Its a uber chic black blazer with a hint of edginess thanks to the sleeves being half faux leather. It would look great with a jeans, a white tee, and simple pair of shoes. Plus, its on sale for $42 at 80s Purple! Yes, large is still available!
Sequins should definitely be the official embellishment of winter! Sequins are a staple for any winter holiday wardrobe, because they just dazzle any LBD for a holiday party or polish, shine, and pull together a tee and jeans combo.
Well, this season, I am all about the sequin blazer. It has the shape of chic, but the glitz of glam. You can get in boxy, fitted, long, or cropped. Whatever style that tickles your fancy, you should add one to your winter wardrobe. Below are a couple of options to spark some interest for you!
