Oversized Blazer: Styling for Work and Play

Happy Thursday, everyone!

I'm back this week styling the season's must-have item: the oversized blazer. The blazer I'm styling today had just been featured in this Fashion Short Video filmed and edited by my good friend Edward (@edchyau). If you've seen it, then you know where the blazer is from and what it means to me. If you haven't, check it out!

I love this trend because any outfit with a blazer just makes you look instantly "put-together." You could be wearing leggings or shorts and boots or sneakers, and it would still work! You can easily go from work to a dinner date or even a cocktail event with the same piece.

Styling Look No. 1

The first look simply features the use of a belt. I wore it outside the blazer to highlight my waistline. In order to keep the look sleek and clean, and avoid looking too "office-y," I went with a white denim skirt and paired it with black Chelsea boots. I've also worn dresses underneath the blazer before for a similar look.

 I added a touch of "bling" and let it peep through the blazer.

I like to mix and match different materials and add texture to an outfit. For the second look, I've paired the oversized blazer with a lace-trimmed silk top and a pair of jeans adorned with pearl accents.

Jeans are usually more casual, but this pair looks a little bit more dressed-up thanks to the pearls.

 This pair of studded black pumps is from Sezane, one of my new favorite brands!

And that's all for today! I hope you like the two looks I put together!
