Do you have a signature style… or a signature piece that is so you… a piece, that you can never imagine living without?
I think we all have an article of clothing or an accessory that we not only wear over and over but that we buy over and over.
For me, it’s the blazer.
I can’t have enough blazers and I would be happy wearing them every day… actually, most days I do… In summer, cotton or linen… In winter, wool and cashmere.
It’s a look I like and more importantly, that I feel comfortable in.
Blazers as suits… blazers as separates… structured and unstructured…
The masculine element of the blazer either tailored or over sized and mixed with a little femininity is a timeless, classic and elegant look… one of those styles that we have been and will be wearing forever.
Blazers are my go to if I am carrying extra pounds and they are my favourite item of clothing if I am feeling in good form…
When I don’t know what to wear… or on those days when nothing feels right… I traditionally choose a blazer with jeans or a suit… When I need a jacket over an LBD… it’s tuxedo style.
It’s Paris Fashion Week… Let’s talk fashion… Tell me, what is your signature style? Or your can’t-live-without-piece? xv
