I love blazers of every variety! And Stephanie seems to be on the same page. We've seen her wear a plethora of classic suit blazers of varying cut and stance. However, once of the most accessible pieces she's broken out lately is this version done in denim. If you're new to blazers, this kind of piece is a great place to break in. think of it as your classic denim jacket, but a bit more mature. Like the denim jacket, it can make dressy outfits more casual, in a more polished way. Stephanie tossed it over a pretty robin's egg blue sheath dress, a look I'm a huge fan of. It makes the dress much more versatile and cries it from spring/summer into fall. Since she was wearing it in August, Stephanie paired it with white sandals. To make the outfit more autumn-appropriate, I've envisioned it with sand suede ankle booties, which enhance the casual feel. In keeping with Steph's style sensibilities, accessorize with refined gold jewelry, accented with clear crystal (or diamonds if you're the Chief Brand Officer of a super-successful co., doing quite well in life, or just want to give yourself a treat ;)). Try something classic mixed with something with a bit of an edge, like spikes or ear crawlers ;). The denim blazer works just as well over a maxi dress as it does over a sheath. So, if you happen to have a pretty one hanging in your current closet, don't relegate it to the warm-weather-only section! Any multi-season fabric (cotton, cotton blends, silk, ponte, crepe) as well as lace pieces can transition easily to cooler months with the aid of a blazer. (Avoid specifically-summer fabrics like seersucker, gingham and linen though). I'm holding on to summer as long as possible, so I imagined completing this look with ankle-strap pumps :). If you're ready for full-on fall, pair it with flat tan or caramel knee boots instead. I hope you're inspired to try a denim blazer soon, loves! Happy fashioning!
