Happy Friday, friends! Hope your week has been great! I have been down with a flare-up of all of my usual symptoms and have been really sick. So, I’ve been chilling at home all week, trying to recover. It comes out of nowhere sometimes and really sets me back. But, I know it won’t last forever, so I’m giving myself time to heal and then I’ll keep moving forward. If you’re struggling today, know that it’s okay to stop, rest, and give your body the break it needs to rebuild. You will get through it!
On the fashion front, I’m talking all about Double-Breasted Blazers today! The blazer trend was huge last season and it’s back this year! But, instead of a lot of single breasted blazers, we are seeing the boxy, double-breasted ones making a big splash!
I love this menswear trend for my ladies because it makes us look like the BOSSES we are! Isn’t it about time that men have womenswear trends, though? I did buy my husband a leopard print sweatshirt the other day, LOL! I LOVE it! I hope he wears it proudly, haha!! 🙂 But seriously, this trend makes you feel confident and in charge! I love how clothing can really change the way we feel on the inside like that.
Plaid blazers are really popular! I love the neutral tones, but the colorful ones are really fun, too! You can also find solid colored (lots of bright colors!) blazers, and often times they come with matching pants so you have a full suit! I love this look. I think it is so fashion-forward and such a powerful statement! GO FOR IT!
I found this cute, plaid blazer at Shopbop.com! I love the neutral tones. It’s so easy to style. You could totally rock it with a skirt of any length, button it up and wear it over leggings, or throw it over a dress! I paired it with my favorite pair of faux leather pants. It looks amazing with jeans as well.
I wanted to bring out the colors in the plaid, so I picked my Gucci wine-colored belt and Louis Vuitton monogram bag to pull out the browns and maroon in the jacket. I went for my favorite block heel pumps by Steve Madden (from last season – but there are still so many pumps like this out again this year) to complete this neutral look!
For my petites, this look can sometimes be a bit overwhelming. So, I try to keep everything else relatively fitted. I tend to get lost when I try to do too much of the over-sized trend, so keeping it to one piece works really well for those of us who are smaller. 🙂
What do you guys think about the over-sized blazer trend? Are you into it? Let me know your thoughts! I’ve linked this look and some other double-breasted blazer favorites under $200 below! Have a wonderful weekend 🙂
