14 Jan Turning Heads Linkup -How to Style a Double Breasted Blazer
Lately, I have been on a jean kick, ( See my white jeans and puffy sleeves post yesterday) and also a faux leather kick. Last week I shared my paper bag waist faux leather trousers, this week I am wearing my Zara brown faux leather leggings.
In 2019 we saw a lot of plaid blazers, I’ve always been a blazer girl, as its a great way to look put together with a 3rd piece. We will see more blazers in 2020. I look at it more of a classic style as blazers don’t go out of fashion.
I have a few plaid blazers I bought last year, this one you have seen in this post where I styled a different plaid fitted blazer with matching trousers. A suit if you will.:-) Read post here- Plaid Suiting -Ways to Wear
Today I have styled my double-breasted plaid blazer from H&M with a pair of Zara brown leggings in faux leather material. I am wearing this blazer in a size 4. Although this exact blazer is no longer available, I love the look and cut of this Mango plaid blazer.
How else might I style this plaid blazer?
I like to balance proportions, so I may wear it with a pair of skinny jeans and tall boots.
For varying lengths, I would style this blazer with a camel turtleneck and wide-leg cropped jeans.
Try a fashion-forward look wearing this blazer over a midi dress.
Wear it open with a floral blouse and jean skirt, tights and booties for a pattern mixed look.
Leading into Spring, try a cami and lighter wash straight jeans with heels.
Mix checks. Try a different pair of smaller checked trousers for an eye-catching look.
Wear a pair of kick cropped flared jeans with a light sweater, blazer and booties.
You all know I love my accessories and just bought these hoop earrings and this delicate gold necklace with a gold and pearl pendant. I’ve been enjoying wearing some classic gold pieces.
I made a goal of going to the gym, ( as I now am accepted into the “Silver and Fit” program,) and began to swim at the local gym. I’ve also been using my new earbuds ( to walk on the treadmill at home.) Going to the gym, I have a similar neoprene jacket to keep the body heat in, when in the pool. I did some pool weights and will take a class on Sundays. It’s easy to go and get upset and look back on what I used to do prior to EDS, but I can also look back and see that 10 years ago I was hardly leaving the couch and bed because of pain. So I am choosing to think positively about what I can accomplish now.
We went to see “Uncut Gems” and I can say, It wasn’t bad. Adam Sandler was very good in the film, but I wasn’t crazy about any of the characters. You know, when you don’t feel for any character to the point where you don’t care what happens to them? I like to connect with movie characters. I do think he is underrated as an actor, and I still love him as a comedian and watching him on SNL. “Opera Man” was one of my favs!
Heres the 2 canvas photos I received from my hubby for Christmas. I love them!
This was the first day we picked up Gibby 8 years ago!! See how red his hair was! It matched mine!
My girl Truffles! She used to not let us take her picture, so this was a rare moment. She is still a fireball at 10, running around the house.
