The Bountiful Blazer

The blazer, much like the white button-up shirt and the grey pencil skirt, is often used only as business attire.  However, this wardrobe staple can easily dress up any outfit.  A well tailored blazer can even offer feminine curves to an otherwise shapeless ensemble.   My blazer of choice is a navy, single-button blazer with rolled sleeves.

The Crisp, Clean and Classic White Button-Up

A fitted White Button-Up shirt is an essential piece of any stylish wardrobe because it is incredibly versatile and can easily elevate the “classy” perception of an outfit.  The white button-up shirt makes almost any outfit look well thought out and well put together.  Here are just a few of my favorite ways to wear this classic piece.  Remember, almost all of these outfits can be tailored to what is already in your closet.  Just get creative!
