African Print of the Day with Christelle: Blazers for Days
I love blazers. They're hitting this spring with a vengeance, and its something I can't wait to get on board with!
So with Spring just around the corner (thank goodness the cold weather is over!) I've decided to take a look at blazers, and why they're a fashion staple in any women wardrobe.
The blazer will never be out of fashion - it comes and goes with the seasons, but never fails to make a fashionable return, or creep through the boundaries of Autumn/Winter fashion. There's a near-unlimited end to the style of blazers available, from fitted, to the boyfriend, slouch, oversized and classic - all of which hold their own important place in our wardrobes.
The fact that a blazer goes with absolutely anything, whilst giving it a slightly preppy or classic vibe is the best. You can style them a million different ways, and male them appropriate for almost any occasion.
The thing is, we all want a bit of variety in our lives. Take a look into my wardrobe, and you have every colour in existence... and every style of blazer, culotte, dress or coat under the sun! I love my prints, my loosely fitted denim, slouch blazers; they all speak to me in different ways.
With so many ways to style a blazer, it can be difficult to figure out the correct style for the right occasion. Today it's all about this stunning blazer, crafted out of the same material as the beautiful Tatiana Pencil Dress. I've paired it with the matching cropped pants, and kept it basic with a simple grey vest top and silver heels, perfect for a smart casual look.
Dress this look up by giving it a sexy edge, by removing the top and wearing the blazer buttoned up, with the matching trousers, patent black court shoes and a black bag, or pair it with skinny cropped jeans, sneakers and a simple t-shirt for a more casual look.
Let me know how your thoughts on blazers, and how you love to wear them! You know I love to hear your thoughts. x
