Blazers + Bling!

Keira Knightley in Elle, March 2010.

I apologize this is two work wear posts in a row, but I’m all about blazers & bling right now! I love love boyfriend blazers and I just couldn't stop myself from doing this post. Keira Knightley wore a really great blazer on the cover of Elle this past month (as shown above) and she glammed it up with a lot of sparkle!

I really love blazers either paired with extra feminine pieces (like ruffles, florals, or sparkles & bling like Keira) or with casual wear (white tees, jeans, oversized tees). I think these options keep the structured business-blazer from being too stuffy, and help make the transition from work time to fun time a little bit easier. I found a couple here I’m drooling over (and by a couple, I mean A LOT).

Aqua French Terry 3/4 Blazer, $98(the brass buttons are a cute touch)

Aqua Fitted Girlfriend Blazer, $88(this seems like a very close look alike to Keira's blazer from Elle)

Free People Long Seam-Detailed Linen Blazer, $128(some more glammed up options)

Free People Oversized Knit Blazer, $118(even more glammed up! love it!)

Theory "Chateau Blinn" Tailored Blazer, $415(great casual chic vibe)

All this research has given me a bit of a shopping bug that needs to be cured with some purchases. :)

  10. In Highschool our dress code required us to wear blazers with our pants. Let me tell you, if these cute options existed then I would not have looked NEARLY as dykey/unfortunate for those formative years...

  11. Beautiful selection of blazers. I love slightly oversize versions with rolled-up sleeves.

  12. I LOVE love love these blazers!
    I want every single one :D xxx
