There’s nothing better than versatile pieces that can take you from the boardroom to Friday night drinks with your girlfriends. And while many of you may think that a blazer is not that piece, I’m here to tell you it is.
Take my navy belted blazer for example. Easily paired with slacks, a silk blouse and pointed toe pumps to rule your nine to five. Then just as easily paired with a pair of jeans and statement heels for happy hour. In fact my favorite way to wear this blazer is actually with a lace body suit underneath for date night. With just a peak of lace showing I still feel comfortable, covered up, and sophisticated, but just a tad on the saucy side.
And you don’t have to spend a fortune, this blazer is actually from Zara! Sadly, like all great Zara finds, it’s sold out, but I’ve linked similar blazer options here, here, here and here, and I’m OBSESSED with this striped one! I wore this jacket on stage at Create & Cultivate late last year, and it seriously made me feel like a million bucks the second I put it on. Can’t beat that!
Just keep in mind you want a blazer to be tailored, but not tight, and very few blazer will EVER fit you correctly off the shelf. My suggestion, especially if you’re investing in a more expensive one, size one size up and then take it to a tailor. That way you’ll have the length working for you which is where I find so many people get the look all wrong.
Another thing that happens to help this outfit is my favorite new ZAC Zac Posen bag. The overall structured feel of the bag accented with the delicate flowers is my favorite combo of masculine and feminine. Plus with the navy and red colors you don’t have to only wear this floral bag in spring. And just a little something to brighten your Friday, we’re giving away one of these killer ZAC Zac Posen bags (retail value $550)!
