Now that boots season is about to depart from us, I’m about to milk what’s left of the season for all its worth! I detest the sub-zero temperatures winter brings with it, but I’m a self-proclaimed chair lady of the winter wear fan club, specializing in the winter footwear department. Out of the host of footwear options, over the knee boots are my absolute favorite. Over the years, I’ve learned the secret art of pairing them with the right outfits for an overall chic look. Pair them with an unsuitable outfit and you run the risk of looking tacky!
I wear blazers year round, with or without layers, depending on the heat index. In the winter, I mostly pair them with long sleeved button down shirts (and then throw on a coat when I’m out in the elements). I’d say that what draws me to blazers is the air of sophistication they emit. A well-fitted blazer can instantly transform pretty much any outfit it’s paired with from basic to chic!
Now, let’s talk about this week’s outfit, why don’t we?
I chose to pair this gorgeous red-detailed white blazer with a simple black button down shirt and navy blue high-waist, stirrup pants. I prefer to tuck my shirts/blouses into my pants for a preppy, polished look.
For footwear, I chose my favorite pair of over the knee boots, that I’ll probably wear until the soles fall off. That’s how much I love them! I kept my accessories relatively simple and chose to stick to a gold-toned theme. Note that I don’t subscribe to the “no girls allowed in the cufflinks club” school of thought. I am of the opinion that cufflinks should not be limited to menswear- ladies can and should don them if they so please. Brooches are also a staple in my accessories collection- they add a dose of glam to blazers, blouses, dresses etc.
This week’s outfit is a simple but chic look that has the added advantage of being easy to put together. As always, it’s my absolute pleasure to share details about how you can recreate the outfit. So here goes…
