Things don’t get much more timeless than the classic blue blazer. An iconic piece to say the least, the navy blue blazer is so versatile that it can be paired with numerous items you likely already have in your closet. Today I have styled my favourite new release from local fashion designer, Anneke Forbes.
I am completely obsessed with the attention to detail Anneke has shown in this piece. The covered (and functional) buttons, pockets, adorable gingham piping in lining, all complete with an inner pocket just big enough for your phone, wallet, or lipgloss. No detail is forgotten. The fabric, a light cotton/linen blend is perfect for keeping the evening breeze off your shoulders this Summer and is one that can be dressed up or down for whatever occasion.
Today I’ve styled Anneke’s blazer in a very ladylike and modern way. I love the contrast of the navy blue with the lighter neutrals (girl loves neutrals). The beaded Free People top and CoutuKitsch statement necklace, while together are quite dressy, are given a slightly more edgy vibe paired with ripped Black Orchid jeans.
What do you think of this look? I’ve actually styled this particular blazer another way which I will be sharing next week, so be sure to keep an eye out for my Lady In Red post.
