I wanted to share some styling tips for a cute blazer today! I know you, like me, want to look cute while running errands. I think a nice blazer can really elevate a look both for during the day, running errands and for a date night. I also curated this look with the same black cotton dress under both. I am sure you all have a LBD somewhere in your closet. ;)
First up... is my street / casual style with comfy shoes for running around town and such. You can also throw on a cute flannel or plaid shirt underneath your blazer to give it a little something extra.
So... this how I would style the same dress and blazer to a dinner with friends or date night! I love to be able to transition my outfits as much as possible. Switch up the tennis shoes for heels, add a dressy clutch and jazz up the jewelry make for a simple dressed up look!!!! Don't yall think?
Also.... I will be blogging a tutorial on how to do this "up do" on Friday.... stay tuned for that!!
All my outfit details are below.... but I wanted to remind you that as of now nothing I am blogging is sponsored and these are my actual clothes from my real closet. So I am styling them to give you ideas on how to style your clothes in your closet.
As you can see the same black cotton dress and blazer look totally different depending on how you style them. These same two looks would also be super cute with a camo jacket if you had that instead of a blazer.
Style is always in the eye of the beholder IMO.... so what I think and feel is cute and trendy might be "too much" for someone else. So when I style clients I always take into consideration their personal views on their own body image and what they are each most comfortable in. I offer closet consultations where I can come and help you put NEW outfits together out of what you already own. Which is super fun because we have all been there.... where we were convinced we had "NOTHING TO WEAR". Am I right?!? Sometimes a fresh eye on your closet can really open up new doors and help you to feel cute and trendy again, in case you are in a rut. If you are interested in a closet consultation be sure to reach out to me HERE.
I did want to share a little story from one of my recent clients.... she was tired of her clothes and really thought she needed a whole new closet of clothes. I spent about 4 hours with her and put together over 100 new outfits from things she already owned and just paired differently. She was in a rut and just need a fresh perspective on her closet. During a closet consultation I will photograph you in each 'new' outfit I put together so you can reference how I styled what and be able to replicate the look for yourself. This particular client found it very helpful and stress relieving to not have to think about what she was wearing to work each day and could instead click through her styled look book and set out the outfit she wanted to wear the night before.
I would absolutely love to help you with your closet or style.... let me know what you need!!
As always, thank you for reading my blog and following along as it evolves and grows. If you have a particular item you aren't sure how to style, leave me a comment below and I will be sure to style something similar from my closet in future style post. Happy Wednesday Pretties!!
