Fashion My Style

A Pinstripes and Crisp White Affair

July 23, 2016

I mention this in pretty much almost every blog post, but just in case you’re not privy to this information, I’ll share it again- I love blazers! My body literally has an endorphin release party anytime I think of blazers and all the amazing looks I can create with them! Now that that’s off my chest, let’s proceed with the blog post, why don’t we?

This particular pin-striped  blazer was actually thrifted, I kid you not! There’s no shame in my vintage clothing game. I love thrift shopping because I discover unique pieces that I wouldn’t otherwise find at a regular clothing store. A quick dash to the dry cleaners, and voila, my thrift finds are as good as new. The secret to pulling off an overall ‘posh’ look is in how you coordinate pieces. I’ve seen some high-end brands look like ‘rags’ because of poor style coordination.  Besides coordination, accessorization is equally important. The right shoes and accessories can completely transform an outfit.

For this particular look, I chose to pair the blazer with a simple white tank top and  a pair of white high-waist jeans for a crisp, polished look.  I kept my accessories simple, opting for a classic gold watch and matching bracelets. Finally, I completed the look with these gorgeous pair of stiletto heels (which I talked about here), and hey presto an effortlessly chic versatile outfit! I say versatile because this is an outfit I can wear to work and play. For a more casual-running errands about town- look, I’d trade the heels for a comfortable pair of loafers.
