This week’s inspiration is the printed a blazer, a piece that’s stylish and comfortable, and sure to go with everything. We love the simplicity of the outfit underneath the blazer; it’s all black everything, but the printed blazer just ties everything together and makes the whole outfit come together.
When picking a printed blazer, go with a print that you think you can wear over and over again. If you like a bold, loud print, that’s fine, but just think about whether you can wear it often without it looking like you’re always wearing the same outfit. Because wearing certain prints can do that to you. Also, blazers are often a more expensive clothing item so invest in a style, print, and cut that you think will work with the rest of your wardrobe. We absolutely love this floral print blazer because its pastel hues are perfect for the Spring. It also has a background of black which means that it’s a piece that can make the transition from day to night effortlessly. It’s a piece that you can throw on over anything and instantly look put-together and polished.
Because our blazer is on the shorter side, we picked a top that was longer. Because our blazer is fairly straight cut, we picked a slightly flowy top to wear inside it. It’s a sleeveless tank, which can be worn on top of a t-shirt to get more coverage. We also added a statement necklace to add some sparkle to the outfit.
We loved the simplicity of the outfit when paired with the colourful, printed blazer, and that’s the look we decided to emulate. We continued the black theme with a pair of slim black jeans, a black scarf, and a black satchel. You could easily add punches of colour with the scarf and the bag, but we liked the black on black look throughout the outfit and thought it made the jacket stand out even more against the black canvas. But we decided to add our punch of colour in the shoes, a pair of heels in a gorgeous pale blue colour, which picks up on the blue in the blazer.
Having a piece like this in your closet is sure to help you on those days when you don’t know what to wear! Pair it with almost anything underneath and throw this on top. You’ll look so polished and chic! This is also an outfit that can easily be taken from day to night. Now that’s what you call a minimal effort outfit. 🙂
We hope you found inspiration in this week’s Modest Monday! Join us next week for some more style and fashion.
