Outfit Post and Inspiration: How to wear a Blazer This Season

As we reach the end of the year (so many thoughts about that!), we also reach the coldest time of the year for most of us (unless you live in Australia). I was just thinking about how I used to have at least 3 blazers from Mango and Zara when I used to work at magazines like FHM and Prevention. For the past two years (and five months), I’ve been working from home and seeing how hot things are in Delhi, I barely wear blazers in summers.

As soon as it was Autumn, I thought I’d do a look with a blazer. The idea behind this look was to try something new with it: make it more casual in a way that it also helps break the monotony (I mostly wore black and white in 2016).

About the Blazer

I think I caught the blazer bug from my sister, Pragati who had a very good collection (which she shared as good older sister!) seeing she worked at a senior position the IT industry. I guess I’m usually fascinated with pin-stripes but this time, I went in for a lighter blue (I’m usually into navy blue or charcoal blue) ‘coz it gave off a faux denim blazer look. I think the color, too, has a younger vibe to it.

The blazer is well tailored with two slit pockets and front enclosure.

How an accessory made a huge difference

As a blogger, you’re constantly expected to style yourself differently and I have to be honest: I’m not the best at it. Don’t get me wrong: I’ve been complimented for my aesthetics as long as I remember but I’m not a pro at eclectic accessories or at color blocking. I learn new things everyday.

Over the years, especially when you work for a brand or our representing one at a meeting, you were expected to hold yourself back. But since I work for myself: I have no one to answer to, except me. And you guys!

4 Styling Inspirations to Re-create your Blazer Ensemble

While I decided to pair this blazer with white shorts and a quirky bag (it was Autumn here!), I decided to go on Polyvore and do a set on 4 Ways with 1 Blazer. Now I couldn’t find the same blazer and the closest that came to it was from Stella Mc Cartney (and is super expensive!). My point is this is just a mood board and not just about brands. I hope you find new inspiration for makeup, fits, accessories and bags here!
