New Find: The Long Ruffle Blazer

Long Ruffle Blazer Riding Boots

Sometimes when I am out doing “research” I stumble upon things that I didn’t know I needed. Most of the time I can ignore these pangs of desire, but this silky black blazer got under my skin, and I couldn’t refuse it. I did my “can I wear this 17 different ways?” trick in the dressing room, then I tried it on again over a different shirt, and then I tried it with a skirt instead of pants. It passed all three tests, and it reminds me of a weird Stevie Nicks/Golden Girls hybrid, so that definitely sent it over the edge for me.

Long blazers or boyfriend-style ones can be tricky to pull off, and I never actually thought I would own one personally. However, this particular garment has a less boyfriend-y, more slim fit to it, and the ruffled opening is flattering and slimming as well. I think that if you’re gonna do long, a little lift in the sleeves helps as well, because it elongates you and makes you appear to stand up straight. Wearing a heel will also mitigate some of the leg-shortness too. So add this to my list of justifications for the week!

    What a cool blazer! It’s really unique and I like the dark gray color of it. I definitely can see how it’d be really versatile.

    lol @ the Stevie Nicks/Golden Girls comparison. I don’t see it, but maybe I am just blinded by the fact that I really like it..
