01 Oct Turning Heads Tuesday – Tweed Blazer, Leopard Cami and Suede Booties
I can’t believe it is October! Time is whooshing by and I am looking forward to all of the upcoming Holidays. But let’s not rush things. I wanted to style a blazer today with denim, and this tweed blazer was one I’ve had for many years in my closet.
Although you don’t see me much in black, I do enjoy wearing it from time to time. I’ve had this Loft tweed blazer for many years and like the ruffles and fitted style. I’ve added several camis to my closet, as they are a great staple to wear with blazers and cardigans in the Fall, alone in the summer.
Tweed was made popular in Donegal, Ireland. “Weaving as a hand-craft, using wooden handlooms, is a skill that goes back many centuries in Donegal.” It was also thought of like the hunter’s garment, in England. Why wear camo hunting when you can look dapper in your tweed blazer as British Royalty!
Wearing Black with Fair Skin
If you are like me and have fairer skin, there are some ways for you to wear black. I always wear a warm color near my face when wearing black. This can be in the form of a scarf or other accessories like a colorful pair of earrings. This draws the attention then to those items, making the black less harsh against your skin tone. Here I am wearing a mustard gold scarf which draws your eye to it, instead of the black jacket. The gold and leopard statement earrings add another touch of gold near my face.
I bought this lace cami on H&M, and the print alone would detract from the black, so if worn alone, you would not need to wear the scarf, but I love it anyway!
My new rich rust brown pointed Marc Fisher booties have a bit of a western vibe. I love the pointed toe, as it elongates the leg with the skinny jeans. I was excited to get these new boots for $50 on Poshmark!
