Every fashion-savvy girl knows that to dress up a look, you add a blazer and to, alternatively, dress down a look, you add a denim jacket.
Over time, these two basic tenets have expanded to include more than just the staple black blazer and light denim jacket. Silk or velvet blazers and denim jackets with leather sleeves have evolved into the new norm as those core pieces that add style flexibility into your wardrobe.
Britt of Britt + Whit is a prime example that the lines of your “work” and “weekend” garments can be easily blurred with the addition of the right jacket. The structure of the white blazer tames the flirty silhouette of her pleated dress to make Britt’s look perfect for a creative office or a fashion-job interview. Slipping on the thin black leather belt keeps her figure from being lost in these billowy styles.
Also, pairing her ensemble with a larger bag like the Vince Camuto Nadia Satchel helps her toe the line between on- and off- duty. The quiet color has the just-right amount of playfulness while the large size is ideal for her workplace essentials—it’s also a convenient size for holding your folded blazer while you head out to happy hour with your co-workers!
