Every girl needs at least one good black blazer. It’s a perfect go-to piece, whether you throw it over a blouse for insta-professional, or pair it with skinny jeans and a sparkly top for a classy night-out look.
I went the more professional route for work the other day, combining the blazer with a ruffly skirt so I didn’t look too stuffy.
The thing about this blazer is it makes me look a little boxy. I almost didn’t buy it for that reason. But then I realized it was $7.50 at H&M, and I’d get at least $7.50’s use out of it. To distract from the boxy-ness, I put a scarf behind the lapels and tied a knot at both ends so it wasn’t too long. The scarf was a Christmas present from my mom, and it was the perfect color to add to this otherwise neutral outfit of black, off-white, olive, and gray.
