DIY Blazer Vest
If you remember, my last fashion post was about renewing your wardrobe in simple ways. This DIY blazer vest is one of the items I made to finally catch on to this trend!
I was so excited to wear this blazer vest mainly because it's DIY. It wasn't too hard to do, if you remember from my DIY post, I just used a seam ripper to cut the sleeves off right at the shoulder. If it's a good jacket, it will have shoulder pads so it will still maintain its' structure. Then, I just pinned the arm hole down and sewed it up!
I think it looks very similar to any blazer vest I would buy in a store.
For the top, I went with a simple white silk tank. I think the silk makes this outfit look chic with just the leggings and a blazer vest.
My pants are plain Forever21 leggings. I have to say I'm glad that it's now a trend to wear these as pants! I go through about two a year, which I'd say is pretty good for Forever21! Here are some better quality pants that I'll want to invest in one of these days:
Finally! I'm getting to wear my Dior t-strap sandals! Did I mention these are really uncomfortable? Hopefully these Tom Ford ones are better. I love t-strap sandals and am so glad they're back in. These Gianvitto Rossi are gorgeous, and I love the fur on these Manolos! These sandals from Nordstrom are a more affordable option.
For my bag, I went with a simple shopper. I think it helps keep this look classic even though it's paired with some plain leggings.
If you remember yesterday's post, I talked about investing in classic jewelry that will stay in style forever. This gold chain is a perfect example of something that you will get a ton of use out of, because it's never going to go out of style! I also wore a few plain gold bangles; another key investment for your jewelry collection.
What do you guys think about this blazer? Would you try something like this?
