Topped with a Blazer

I have spoken before about topping outfits with a blazer for immediate polish to any outfit.  It is true.  But surprisingly, I find that many of my clients don’t have fitted blazers or associate blazers with suits, and therefore don’t wear them.  Blazers are a staple in my wardrobe and really go with everything: suits, skirts, dresses, jeans, and shorts.  Fitted blazers are also a great way to add some structure to an otherwise over-sized or flowy outfit.  If you don’t have a fitted blazer, but you do have a fabulous suit, try folding the sleeves and pushing them up to make your blazer seem less suit-like.  If you don’t have a fabulous fitted blazer, go get one!  Or, come to our shop October 22nd.  We have a TON of gorgeous fitted blazers.

Yesterday I wore my blazer to a meeting, shopping with a client, skying with a client, and then happy hour with a my good friend, Kate.  An outfit like this really can take you from day to night.  The only thing I changed from this picture was add another brooch at lunch.  Two or three brooches are always better than one!

  1. before i scrolled down, i wanted to ask you about the dress LOL
    it’s so amazing on you…

  2. Love the blazer – so sharp! I sometimes hesitate to wear mine with dresses because I wonder if it’s too long – it hits pretty well below my hips. Maybe an excuse to look for a more cropped one 🙂

    p.s. love your bag – now that’s a grownup purse!

  3. I love the lipcolor, Sydney!! You look amazing. (and I totally cracked-up when I checked out the credits for your outfit–THAT was priceless!!! )

  4. Love the navy blazer. You look so chic.
