A blazer over a pair of jeans has been one of my favorite fall combinations since the nineties. The elements have become a little more sophisticated as I age, and thoughtful styling is more important.
Today, I’m sharing the styling tips that have been most helpful to me: Blazers should close, even if you intend always to wear them open. When I wear a long blazer, such as the one shown here, I always tuck in the top or wear a belt over it since losing the waistline under another long layer always makes me look shorter and broader. If the blazer is oversized, wear more fitted garments beneath it.
Necklaces should rest comfortably over your neckline above the bust. The French Kande necklace is long, so I slipped the toggle through one of the links to make it shorter. Here is a similar necklace.
All of the elements in my look are more than a year old, so I will share links to similar items. Blazer – Jeans – Cami – Bag – Shoes here and here. My lip color is Plum: True Berry here.
Mr. Mickey also wore elements purchased a few years ago. Here are similar items to his. Shirt – Pants – Loafers.
We wore these casual looks to enjoy a drive through the mountains and a late afternoon meal at Antler’s Bar in Blowing Rock, NC. The rain had stopped for the day, but the temperatures were only in the high sixties.
