Today’s blazer from Wet Seal has an abundance of adorable details. Tiny pockets with ruffled tops, slight gathering on the shoulders, and little (false) button tabs on the cap sleeves. I also love that the neckline on this one is a bit more narrow than the typical blazer cut, creating a more vertical opening that is an interesting change of pace. There’s also a tiny v-shaped notch out of the back of the collar that I failed to photograph. The fabric is very soft, in a weave similar to denim but much finer and just a teeny tiny bit fuzzy.
This was actually the perfect fit for me with no alteration, which is always a delight!
The only down side of really long skirts is it’s harder to create a variety of looks when both shoes and hosiery are effectively hidden. I’ve worn this white skirt once before, ages ago. It’s so drastically different from anything else in my wardrobe, making it an extreme challenge for me. I couldn’t think of any other way to style this piece, until I thought to try it with a blazer. The white lace cami from Newport News tied it together nicely (this is the cami I have in five colors; you’ve also seen it in mauve and black so far).
I have one more idea for how to style this skirt, and then I will be tapped out. For now. I might need you guys to come to the rescue with another fashion brainstorming session soon!
It’s been a while since I’ve done a Day-to-Evening series. Check back tomorrow to see how I will re-style this outfit for a quick dinnertime transformation!
