Blazing Trails: How To Rework Your Fave Jacket For Fall

If you've ever read my blog, Stripes & Sequins, you'd know that I'm a sucker for blazers. While everyone else is in to the trendy crop tops or lucite everything, I'm sticking to my tried and true topper. My fashion mantra is simple. I've always preferred investing in the classics that would go with everything than the fast fashions that have a seasonal expiration date.
To me, this blazer is the sartorial equivalent to icing on a cake — it makes everything better. That's why when I spotted this designer find at T.J.Maxx I nearly pounced. The satin details on the collar scream luxe but I didn't balk at the price tag. To prove how the blazer is the final puzzle piece that'll make every outfit complete, see how I'm turning this everyday item into two outfits you can't resist, ahead.
