HOW I STYLE: BLAZERS



I've spent most of my life in leather or denim jackets, but as of recent years, I've started to love the clean lines and power that comes with wearing a blazer.  Originally associated with formality and masculinity, I love adding my own spin, wearing them with girly looks, or adorning them in safety pins, for total juxtaposition.  At first I found them difficult to style up, but now it feels natural, so thought I'd put together a guide, as I could have definitely done with this when I first bought one!  Which look is your favourite?

MY BLAZER PICKS:


1. LAYER IT UP
Wear it closed with a belt and wear it as a dress under a big cosy coat.

2. CUSTOMISE IT
Business punk is my fav aesthetic. Add a ton of safety pins, chains, badges & patches to make it your own.

3. CASUAL DENIM
Dress down formal pieces with denim shorts.

4. BAND TEE
Grunge, but make it professional..kinda
