Nothing screams boss-like energy like a GOOD blazer. This olive green suit jacket is a part of the Power Up Blazer set from Rich Addiction. A staple piece for your fall wardrobe that emotes power, style, and grace. I’m a firm believer in dressing how you want to feel. For the days where I need a little motivation or when I want to own the room or even when I need to embody CEO-like energy--I’ll put on a blazer and step into the essence of being a boss.
Now onto the faux leather shorts. We’ve seen the faux leather short trend emerge during the summer months, and have now transitioned seasons to remain fashionably relevant this fall. But can you blame them? The leather fabric is the perfect material for the crisp and cool fall weather. And the short length can vary from a mid-length Bermuda short to right above the knee. Not too short and not too long and perfect for the fall.
Onto the breakdown of how I experiment with manipulating principles of the formality scale to achieve a bossed-up and edgy look. With this ensemble, I pieced together three garments from three different parts of the formality scale. There is the contrast of the 1) formal olive green blazer against the 2) semi-formal casual black leather faux shorts and 3) casual black crop top. The trinity offers a style combination that garners a dynamic and powerful outfit.
Now, ya girl loves a good bargain. I got these lilac slingback heels from Target two years ago and they have yet to fail me. What I love about lilac is, this paler hue of purple adds a subtle pop of color to any outfit.
The low heel of the slingback- shoe inspired me to style my accessories with a ’60s - inspired feel. The shape of the earrings along with their playful and bright lime green color embodies the color scheme of the ’60s. While the shape of the crotchet purses’ gold handles also mimic the styles of classic handbags from the 60’s.
Stay tuned for new blog posts every Tuesday.
