Last minute holiday party outfit idea

On Sunday morning I found out that I had a Christmas party to attend that evening and my day was already booked with plans, so there was no way I was heading to the mall to find an outfit to wear. However I knew that I didn’t need to do that. Instead of panicking, I knew that I could put a look together last minute because I had the key items in my closet.

I tucked my black turtleneck into my black pencil skirt which instantly created a little black dress! Put on my double breasted grey plaid blazer, black tights, black ankle boots and of course what takes the outfit to that dressy level is the statement jewelry.

Having the wardrobe essentials in my closet, allows me to create endless outfit options. ❤️

No matter your lifestyle. No matter if you work in an office, stay at home, or you wear a uniform or scrubs every day. Every woman needs at least one blazer in their wardrobe, that they can depend on.

Just like my wardrobe basic #1 jeans, the blazer gives you countless options. I’ve mentioned before that I don’t own a lot of clothing but I invest in the wardrobe basics and have some great accessories that allow me to create many different looks.

Wear your blazer with any trouser, dress or skirt, you have now created a suit.

Wear your blazer with any pair of jeans.

Blazer can be dressed up or down, depending on the shoes you are wearing.

Add a fur vest to give an entirely different look.

Wear over your shoulders to add instant glam. (I love wearing a blazer over your shoulders when wearing a dress).

You can add accessories to your blazer and no one will even remember it’s the same one. Accessories such as a fur collar, silk scarf, necklaces, and broaches.

Belt the outside of the blazer.

Roll the sleeves up to make it more causal.

7 Days of Style Tip: Fit is everything. If you purchase a blazer that doesn’t look like it was meant for you, go and visit a tailor.
