|tuxedo blazer - JC Penny, trousers - JC Penny, pumps - Steve Madden, choker & bracelet - H&M, clutch (old) Jessica Simpson|
I have to admit to you all that I regret buying this tuxedo blazer! I bought it a week ago, and I must have seen about three people with it already, which is the same reason that I passed on this Forever21 studded jacket that I really liked (just too cliche). I can see I am going to have to be very careful with my shopping selections because everyone is loving the same places these days. How awful would it be to show up at an event with the same outfit on as someone else! Ugh!
Although this blazer is making its rounds, I haven't seen anyone actually pair it with the trousers that accompanied it. I am not a huge fan of white. It is a very unforgiving color, and it gets dirty quickly, but there was just something about this look that made me pick it up. I would describe this look as the modern "power suit". Still classic, yet updated with a modern edge. This tuxedo blazer has the perfect amount of shoulder padding, and the suit paired together with trousers has a very tailored appearance. I have to say I love it! I do not wear suits often because they never have the right fit! This suit is not a perfect fit, but it is pretty close. What are your thoughts? Are you a suit wearer?
