I love how pairing a well fitted blazer can add an air of sophistication to any look. My black blazer is similar to this, with touches of a tuxedo. Stay away from inexpensive blazers sold at teen stores - if it is cheap it looks cheap. Remember, things don't have to be expensive to look expensive. I found mine at an outlet on severe discount, and was thrilled. I've probably worn it with a million outfits in a million ways. It's especially great for traveling. Also, a red shoe and red leather belt are wardrobe staples. A simple touch that revs up a look. Don't be afraid to try different colors (imagine these shoes and belt in a cobalt blue) and pattern. Leopard is another pattern I think of as a staple. I would not hesitate to pair this same look with leopard shoes and a belt. Remember, when you're doing these unusual pairings, keep the rest of the look simple. Your fresh face, simple earrings, easy hair will make you look effortlessly chic and professional.
