How To Wear A Blazer Outside Of The Boardroom

If you know me, you know I’m a sucker for anything astrology-related. I strongly identify with my zodiac (Aquarius!), and I take my horoscope very seriously. That being said, any time I see an article relating to astrology, I read it.

Just a week or two ago, I saw an article from Elle that laid out a fall trend for every Zodiac sign. My Aquarius self was itching to see what trend I should rock this season, so I decided to read it. I scrolled all the way down to the bottom (who decided that Aquarius should be the 11th house??) to see that my trend was the “Deconstructed business suit” – basically a blazer and jeans. I scratched my head because the last time I wore a blazer casually was my junior year in high school and that’s not really a time I like to look back on *shudders at the mental image*. The more I thought about it, though, the more it made sense. I’d like to think of myself as a #GIRLBOSS, so why not give this look a shot?

I dug into my closet to retrieve the lone black blazer I own. The only time its seen the light of day is for the career fairs I’m supposed to go to every year. At first, I was going to style it with a graphic tee that said “Holy Chic”, but you couldn’t really see any of the letters except for “Ho”. Since that’s not really the message I want to give out, I rummaged around the rest of my tees in search for the perfect one. At last, I found one!

This Chanel perfume top was the first purchase I ever made in London 3 years ago, so it holds a lot of sentimental value for me. I knew it was the perfect fit for this look. I finished the look with my favorite pair of distressed boyfriend jeans, mules, and a fun bag from Charming Charlie!
