Number One Classic Piece That’ll Update Any Closet

WARDROBE ESSENTIAL

Don’t make fashion complicated, it’s suppose to be an exploratory experience right? Certainly! So you know what that means, you don’t have to do much to create a fashion statement. Sometimes the simplest item transcends your outfit into A-list fashion. Whether it’s a bold necklace, plush leopard print shoes or sequins jeans, you only need one piece to take your look from typical to original. Starting with your outerwear choices, ditch the leather jackets and knitted cardigans. I want to share with you why blazers are becoming part of my go-to closet items.

Asymmetrical, cropped, over-sized, long, quilted, double-breasted or printed this classic piece freshens any outdated look by adding more contrast to your style identity. Blazers are an honorary look among my favorite fashion bloggers such as Camila Coelho, Aimee Song, Tabitha Warley, Mary Orton, Victoria Magrath, Brittany Xavier, Addie Oh, Lydia Rose, Chloe Plumstead and Amra Olevic.

Each style content creator has managed to showcase this classic outerwear piece as a fashion statement in forms of streetwear, casual luxe, work attire or date-night material. Either way you choose to identify with this trend, it’ll certainly kick your look up a few notches.

How to Wear Blazers

One of the greatest aspects to Instagram is the inspirational factor. I always discover style game-changers from some of my favorite fashion bloggers. You don’t need labels like Prada, Balmain, Dolce & Gabbana, or Fendi across your back to declare yourself as fashionable. Style is all about transcending a mood through your clothes with confidence.

Essentially, treat your blazer like a regular outerwear piece. Instead of a denim jacket with your peasant dress, try a cropped blazer. How about skipping your camel trench coat and throw your asymmetrical blazer over some skinny jeans? Try rolling the sleeves on your blazer and show off the length of your button-down tee.

I used to think blazers were only meant for the office, so not true!

You can wear this transformable jacket with anything. Girl you can wear this classic piece to the movies with a band tee, mini skirt and converse, you’ll look one of those LA chicks you see walking the streets. Or style your blazer as a top! That’s right, show off your bralette or wear a camisole underneath for more comfort. Even opt for a belted look with the blazer or skip the top idea and wear your blazer as a dress too.

Hey Girl, Describe Your Look!

Ever since my style revelation, mixed print and textures are a common blend for my OOTD. I’m discovering urban rock is part of my style element, which is why I couldn’t shy away from my Fergie ankle studded booties my sister gave me for Christmas. Those dazzling beauties was the one thing I wanted and Chanel bought it for me ❤ #BestLittleSis

Anyways, I forever stay in band/film merch so I wanted to take my look out of the my usual style. Typically, I wear my t-shirts with skinny jeans and canvas sneakers but for my lunch outing, I decided to try something new. Pairing my Shawn Mendes tee (also gifted by my little sis) with my Charlotte Russe high-waisted jeans was a no brainer. I tucked the over-sized t-shirt in and added my Boohoo striped blazer. I pushed the sleeves up on my blazer to add some skin to this style and break-up the block look effect.

  1. Look at you sis! Love how you rocked that striped blazer! I am digging this trend. I used to be one who thought blazers belonged only to workwear but I love how casual they are becoming. I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect one for me, oversized and a casual material… and the suggestions you gave, spot on! Btw, love fashioninflux’s insta! Lol.

    Me too! I always thought blazers looked too dressy for everyday. But I recently thrifted a boyfriend style plaid blazer and I’m in love. It looks so good with a simple tee and jeans outfit.

    I totally agree that item can make your outfit! I love blazers but I haven’t came across one that I think I would be able to style or that would suit me yet. I am obsessed looking at instagrammers outfit pics of them wearing a blazer. Especially if it is colourful or unique. I love the one your’re wearing, it looks amazing with your boots! I would love to get myself a nice check blazer xx

    That monochrome blazer is gorgeous! Love the way that you’ve styled it too. Totally agree that blazers can totally transform an outfit. I only own one blazer at the moment in a plain black. All of the images you’ve shared have inspired me to look for a new one though!
