Our Blaire Houndstooth Blazer Is A Year Round Classic
It’s that time of the year when everyone is pulling out their blazers, even if they are not a big “blazer person”. You all know that I love them and wear them year-round. When it comes to Jackets and blazers I tend to look for classics that will last a long time and can be worn for many seasons. Our Blaire Houndstooth blazer, in my opinion, is such an item.
I wore this blazer last week for my husband’s birthday dinner in downtown Los Angeles and shared the look on our social media. I got so many compliments that night so I decided to show the look on my blog with a few little styling updates.
Before I start to describe how I styled it, I want to mention that this blazer is also a perfect piece for the holidays because of its color combo, black/white/red and the gold buttons. Because the houndstooth pattern is small you can’t really see it from a distance. I have included a close up photo below that shoes the pattern and the cute under collar which is black.
For my husband’s birthday dinner, I wore it with a white camisole type blouse because it was for a night time look. For today’s look, I wanted to change the blouse to a daytime look, so I styled it with a beautiful and soft white shirt that we have just added to our shop, our white shirt with roll up sleeves.
This is a great shirt made out of 100% rayon fabric with a loose and easy body. It has a collar and a short opening on the front but no buttons. It is long sleeve with a cuff but you can roll it up and use a tab to shorten the sleeves. This is the look I have shown you below in the style photos, but you can see it long sleeve in the shop photos. It is an all-around great white shirt that you can wear to work or any other occasion.
The white shirt with the houndstooth jacket is such a classic look, especially with black pants and great heels. To take it even further, I also added one of our new scarves, the Red Black Gray Geometric Scarf with Tassels, that works perfectly with this look because of its color combo.
As for a necklace, I used our Gunmetal Bead and Pearl Y Necklace with Craystal Pendant that is a beautiful and unique piece. Since the jacket and the scarf have red in them, I finished off the look with my red Prada bag and black Chanel mules and belt.
Before I go, I wanted to mention the pants that I am wearing are from Ann Taylor. I recently purchased them and I am surprised as to how much I love them. It is their Devin fit pant which must be a classic that they run all the time. I chose to buy the petit cropped version because of the length. I wanted a cropped look so their regular version should be a bit longer in the pant length if that is what you prefer. Its a great classic black pant that is beautifully made and has a bit of stretch for comfort. I have included the link below if you are interested in checking them out.
