OOTD: Feeling Blue

DSC_1041

I recently found a $15 blazer at Dynamite, since I love blazers and $15 is such a big steal… I got it D: It’s like a sailor inspired blazer with white and blue vertical stripes. I would say this blazer is not the most flattering on all body shapes as the small stripes can make one look a tad wider. Even though vertical stripes should make you look elongated and very slim, small stripes can make you look wider by the mass of stripes, while thicker stripes will definitely elongate you. Small stripes are an inch or smaller, anything larger than 1-inch stripes will be a plus if you want to look slimmer. Also, this blazer uses lighter-weight fabric than normal blazers, so you don’t have to worry about baking like a rotisserie chicken during the summer.

I just chose clothes to wear and they ended up being all blue. Maybe it’s a sign I was feeling blue that day… Well let’s begin with the OOTD.

OOTD: Light Up the Sky [Neon Blazer]

DSC_0618

As I promised, today I have an OOTD with a bright statement, a neon yellow blazer. With this, anyone is sure to stand out from the crowd, neon blazer are actually more versatile than you would think. You can pair them with jeans and a tee for a casual everyday look, with your business formal black&white work clothes, with some nice yellow trousers for a monochrome pantsuit, or with a nice party dress to add some colour to your LBD (Little Black Dress), white dress, pastel dress, patterned dress, dark coloured dress, or metallic dress. As you can see, this neon blazer is actually reusable for any occasion.

Today I felt like wearing my neon blazer in a casual outfit, but knowing me, plain blue jeans will not be in this OOTD. Instead, I’ve paired the blazer with a pair of faux leather pants. A casual outfit cannot go wrong with a white graphic tee. Throw on some shades, booties and bling bling and it’s all complete. Now it’s time to hop to the pictures!

Oh! This blazer also has a bit of colour blocking. There’s a tan coloured panel under the colour and in the inside of the blazer, so if you want to add colour blocking to your outfit too, just roll up your sleeves and pop that collar!

These have a small hidden wedge in them to give you a little lift without being too obvious

These leather pants are actually very breathable and very thin, so you won’t break a sweat in 20 degree weather

If you are getting too warm, then you can ditch that jacket!… or just leave it in your car.

That’s it for today, hope you can find your own neon blazer! Let me know what neon colour you would buy! Also, let me know if you find any cheap finds!
