Why You Need a Blazer In Your Life

A classic item for any wardrobe, I think that blazers are more than just a seasonal trend. Pairing a blazer with any outfit instantly elevates it to the next level. For the mornings where you’re busy and need something quick, this is your BFF. Not to mention, #LADYBOSS amiright?

I got this blazer last year and even now I still get compliments about it. My absolute go-to outfit is a t-shirt and jeans. The blazer adds the impression of effort into my outfit #winner. But when I have an event, I can just add the blazer and some heels to a basic outfit and I’m good to go. A great piece to take from day to night.

It’s important to make sure you invest in a good quality blazer that can last you more than one season. While it might hurt your hip pocket now, factoring in cost per wear can sometimes justify the purchase. If you buy an item that you love and will continue to wear for many years then you’re onto a good thing.

The fit of the blazer is also really important, I find that sometimes it can be too constricting in the back, or it just doesn’t sit right. Theres always the option to do the oversized blazer look, also known as the boyfriend blazer, as seen in the photos below.

I don’t think you need much convincing how good a blazer is, but here are some currently available online that I’m crushing over.

Adelaide Fashion Festival 2017 Runway 4: David Jones Australian Fashion Showcase

David Jones showcased their range of premium labels for upcoming spring and summer. There was an amazing range of designers like Aje, Alice McCall, Camilla, PE Nation, and  swimwear from Jets, Calvin Klein Sunseeker. There was also menswear from Politix, Ted Baker, and The Academy Brand, which was refreshing. I hadn’t seen any menswear in the other shows so far.

Statement Earrings

I’m loving statement earrings right now. They’re a really easy way to uplift any outfit. They’re excellent for self-expression and the wide variety can really show your off your individuality.

I really love gold accents at the moment (as you can tell!) and these earrings don’t disappoint. Silver accents are also high on the list, it’s like choosing between 2 cute puppies.

Spring Trend: Mules

 

The mule is a popular shoe this season, and with good reason.  A simple heel that elevates any outfit they’re a hit for this spring and summer. You can dress them up or down, and transition from day to night, they’re essential for any girl’s wardrobe. Commonly with a comfortable block heel, they’re a cute alternative to a flat or heel. And it doesn’t look like they’re going away anytime soon!
