Every so often I find myself recreating a look over and over again. Lately, this has been in great skinny jeans, a spring perfect camisole and this blazer. It’s the perfect way to dress up jeans for an effortless everyday look that can go from day to night easily. Plus, I’m having a major high school throwback with where these pieces are from. Per usual, my Abercrombie obsession continues. This camisole comes in a dozen colors just about and is simply perfection. Oh and did I mention it’s on sale today for only $20? Yes, $20, and for size reference I’m wearing a medium. But this blazer is the real throwback and in my opinion, surprising brand, bebe.
I always feel like a great blazer can instantly elevate an outfit. You’ve seen me do this here to complete a great sweater and jeans, and here over a classic LBD and again with a white tee and jeans. Here’s the thing, adding a third piece (top is one, bottom are two, and blazer/jacket/scarf/whatever is your third) instantly completes an outfit. The blazer is my go to way to effortlessly elevate just about anything. Just like adding a denim jacket is my favorite way to complete a casual look.
When looking for great blazers that don’t feel like you’re just wearing your 9-5 suit blazer on the weekend, choose the boyfriend style. A boyfriend style usually is a bit longer and ever so slightly oversized. It’s got a little less tailoring but still isn’t sloppy. Keep an eye out for fun detailing like great buttons, a pattern or even a more trendy fabric like silk or sateen (like this one). You can also totally repurpose these more stylish blazers at your 9-5 so you can get more out of your closet. Just pair with sleek pants or a dress to get more use out of them.
