1 Jacket, 5 Ideas

So I haven’t had a very exciting time of it since my last post, hence my silence (apologies btw), so I decided to write a post that might give some inspiration for what you already have in your wardrobe! Does that make sense?

Basically I wanted to show 5 ways that you could wear an item that you may not have tried before. This is all about the humble black blazer.

My one is from Topshop, and I’ve had it about 8/9years so it was deffo a good investment!


First look.


This is geared towards a daytime look – possibly for shopping, going to the cinema, meeting friends for lunch/dinner, all very casual. The blazer as before, bright print tee is from Cotton On, skinny jeans are from Levi’s (the curve range as before), ballet pumps & green satchel are both from Penneys. A chunky brightly coloured bangle & a bright scarf would tie it all in together, & really finish off your outfit.

Second look.


This is a good look for a slightly more dressy look, one that might be worn on a date, at a BBQ, or out for drinks with friends. White lace detail vest is from Abercrombie, coral jeans are from Oasis, if you bought brightly coloured jeans last summer or any coloured jeans these will work. I like to roll them up so they’re a nice capri length & wear them with wedges like these ones from River Island or with gladiator sandals. A pale coloured bag like this quilted one from Penneys (as before). To accessorise this, some simple bangles (either bright colours or metallics will work) and earrings will complete the look.

Third look.


Again this is quite casual so may be suited more to occasions like those from look one. The stripy jersey dress is from H&M – it is super comfy, and I love the 3/4 length sleeves. I mainly wear it with tights & boots like these ones from Barratt’s (again had them forever, but they’ve been a great buy), and quite often will wear coloured tights instead of the usual black. The bag was a gift, but any casual bag will work with this. Just add a pretty scarf and you’ll be set!

Fourth look.


This is a look I would quite often wear on a night out, because the jacket works as part of the look as well as being a functional item. The gold one shoulder body con dress is from Drop Dead GorJess, black studded shoes & black quilted bag are from Penneys (as before). I would usually wear this with simple accessories & a very volumised ponytail.

Fifth look.


This is one that I have worn for a more formal occasion (wedding, christening, graduation, or family event) as its very ladylike, very simple and very classic. The blue gathered waist dress is from Monsoon, I bought it about 6 years ago, but with Kate Middleton wearing similar styles recently it’d be quite easy to find something like this in the shops. I like to wear it with these nude courts & clutch from Penneys, as these will keep the focus on the gorgeous colour of the dress. Very simple silver or gold jewellery will work with this outfit, keeping with the simple elegance of the look.

‘Til next time……
