Were officially back into the new work week in a New Year 2016. Just wanted to quickly say that the another holiday giveaway was a success on the blog. Thanks to all of the brands that I closely work with for making it happen, it made my holiday.
After being spoiled with a 4 day weekend half of you should be energized and refreshed or exhausted from all the partying and hanging out. Anyway lets get into todays look..wool.
How To Pair It:
Use the wool blazer as a final layering piece. It doesn’t have to be as intense as the blazer here but make sure its fitted and cut to your proportions. Usually heavier fabrics like wool tend to look ill fitted if it’s not tailored, compared to a cotton. That’s not the case for all though, I’ve found the warmest wool blazers that fit perfectly. It may cost a little more to tailor a wool blazer compared to cotton but its way worth it. If you work in an office setting its most likely you don’t have control of the temperature. Wearing a t-shirt under a blazer is one of my favorite combos for work. During Winter if its gets too warm you can take your blazer off and still have your crisp t-shirt. Its paired with plaid wool slacks and brown dress shoes so it doesn’t look to relaxed when combined together.
Note: Ive found some options to closely match my look but I will be making a separate post on how to get this look with all similar options.
