Blazer Fashion Trend

blue tuxedo jacket

A huge holiday box arrived from Kohl’s a few days ago. I dug in. After sorting through the goodies I decided to feature this blazer.  Why was my favorite piece from the collection this blue tuxedo blazer from Rock and Republic?

I was feeling fairly “downtown” on this particular day so I slipped (ha! it was more like wiggled into) these coated denim leggings and added a black t-shirt, black boots and a black necklace. A pop of color was necessary. I felt the blue gave me more than enough color–and it’s a color I never ever wear. The blazer is just $56–a steal and right on trend for the holiday season. The price is right for a fashion risk don’t you think?

When it comes to the other pieces, they are what I already had in my closet–the black necklace is from Avon’s jewelry collection, the jeans/leggings are 3×1 denim and the top is Michael Stars.

This look is quite young and trendy. I wouldn’t wear it around the in-laws for sure, but on a day full of fashion-oriented fun (and lunch with Glamamom) I didn’t feel completely ridiculous.

    I love this look. I haven’t been brave enough to try the coated denim trend yet, but I think with a blazer it makes it feel a little more grown up and more my style.

    I have a similar cobalt blazer. It’s lovely, isn’t it? I really like that color on you too. It’s a very cooling color. And the shot next to the subway… classic!

      Yes, sadly the HIV sign is in the pic too. Oh well, city reality.
