Wardrobe Cluster Look One: The Blazer Dress

Incidentally, the first look from my wardrobe cluster is a night out look: the blazer dress.

I've seen this trend around and I thought it would be perfect to try with the blazer in my wardrobe cluster. That's the beauty of this experiment, almost everything works to create the outfit you want.

It's an easy look to create with a long blazer, but if it's too short I'd recommend wearing a mini skirt underneath. Since I don't consider underwear as part of the wardrobe cluster, I'm wearing a lingerie tube dress underneath.

The blazer dress is a really cool trend right now, and I think it's an awesome outfit. It stands out so much from the usual LBDs or mini skirts that people wear. It's also a really easy outfit to make out of things you already have.

The wardrobe cluster is a great way to start creating a complete wardrobe. I always recommend getting a long black blazer as one of the key pieces. Having a jacket that can double as a blazer dress prevents us from over consuming and buying more things when we can make do with what we already have.

Another great asset to the long blazer is that it can double as fall 'jacket,' if it's not too cold. I love the ability to wear a jacket like this indoors and out.

I have to apologize that I shot this look before I settled on my shoes and handbags, so I'm wearing mules. However, the blazer dress would be perfect with plain tan pumps.

I settled on a different bag as well, since the one I was originally carrying doesn't even fit my cell phone ;PP

The clutch bag I chose would look great with a blazer dress and a lot of other things in the wardrobe cluster.

And finally, since I don't include jewelry in the cluster, I went with some big wing earrings (similar here and here), and a cat brooch to hold this blazer dress together!
