The Black Blazer - A Closet Staple!


Every girl should have a black blazer in her closet.  It's a staple piece that never goes out of style and is super versatile.  And guess what ... the one I have on was less than $30!  And the lace tank underneath is less than $10!  Forever 21 always carries a variety of black blazers at affordable prices.  Pair it with a cute sleeveless top, skinnies, and heels, and you're ready for casual Friday at work or a night out. 




 BLAZER: Old from Forever 21, similar here and here
LACE TOP: H&M (under $10 and comes in 4 colors!)
DENIM: Express
HEELS: Sam Edelman Yardley (similar here and here)
BRACELET: Baublebar
SUNGLASSES: Ily Couture (under $20)
BAG: Coach Penny, old
 
Let's talk about these heels!  I've been wanting these for months, but once I finally decided to splurge on them, they were all sold out of this color.  I had to stalk Nordstrom for a few weeks before they came back in stock, but I'm so glad I did.  I LOVE them.  Not only are they gorgeous, but they're actually comfortable.  I love that the chunky heel is back in style!  If you don't want to drop $120 on the heels check out this dupe for under $30.

    1. Thanks Katy! I always hate when I click on a link in a fashion post and find out that the shoes are $800 or something ridiculous like that, so I try to keep it affordable - to what I would really spend! Glad you enjoyed the post.

    1. Yuliya, they are actually really comfortable! I think it's the chunky heel that makes them more comfy than skinny heels. Definitely recommend!

  6. Wow, this blazer is such a great find! I guess I should visit Forever 21 more often, lol. I really like how you matched the blazer with skinny jeans and a nice pair of heels. It's such a beautiful combination:) Thanks so much for sharing and have a great week ahead!
