Never Fail

When I don’t know what to wear or don’t have the time to put a creative look together I always turn to the never fail blazer + tee combo.  When pairing dressy pieces with more casual ones a feeling of cohesiveness needs to be achieved.   The easiest way to achieve this is by having two pieces with the same dressy vibe in the look.  Using my outfit for example, even though I am pairing a dressy tuxedo jacket with a tee and extremely ripped jeans the addition of classic pumps pulls the look together.  If flats are preferred then a gorgeous loafer would also do the trick.

Now let’s get a little more advanced in our styling scenario.  If I paired this same look with nice sneakers the tuxedo would more often than not feel out of place.  The reason is that no other element ties in with the blazer (arguably the handbag could, but lets stick to the pieces we are wearing).  Now let’s switch out the jeans for leather leggings or even dressy trousers and keep those squeaky clean sneakers…low and behold the look could work because the trousers elevate the ensemble. This pairing is definitely for the more fashion forward, but it can work because two pieces in the look tie each other together.
