I recently decided that I am going to be the kind of person that wears blazers all the time. Ever since doing the research for my French girl outfits, I’ve just fallen in love with the look of an oversize blazer. I think it’s such an easy way to look a little bit more put together and structured. Because of that, I ordered an oversize blazer from Everlane because I’ve also been obsessed with Everlane lately. I specifically loved the pattern of this blazer, because instead of being your typical gray plaid, it’s gray herringbone. I think it looks a little bit more unique than the plaid blazer that everyone has and the fit of it is perfectly oversize, without needing to size up. I’m also impressed with the quality! It’s a wool blazer, but it’s surprisingly lightweight and not itchy like I expected it to be, which means I can even wear it in the spring as well as through the fall and winter. Basically, because of this blazer, I’m becoming a blazer person and I’m so excited about it. Keep on reading to see how I styled it!
For this first outfit, I took my newest and favorite pair of mid wash Jamie jeans from Topshop and decided to pair them with this navy t-shirt from Something Navy (similar). I like that the base of this outfit is monochromatic and not your typical pairing that you would see with a gray blazer. I added my white Adidas sneakers to keep the look casual and I love how it turned out! This is the outfit I would probably wear the most often out of all three!
As I’m sure the same is true for tons of people recently, Princess Diana has become a true style icon for me. She’s got such a classic, effortless, and chic wardrobe and being a princess, always looked beautifully put together. I personally really love her casual style and I find that her style is still perfect for what’s popular today. So today, I wanted to challenge myself to recreate some of her iconic casual looks with pieces I have in my own closet. Keep on reading to see what I came up and the photos that inspired these looks!
This next outfit was from a street style photo I saw of Lady Diana. She wore a tan blazer, a white shirt and jeans for a super simple and classic look. I took my (very) old BCBG beige blazer (similar) and layered it over a plain white t-shirt. I wore a super light wash pair of mom jeans from Topshop, the same white flats from Target and added a brown belt. This is another one that I think is perfect for spring and that I would wear to work once we got back!
