Bye-Bye Basic Blazers..

I'm mixing it up today with a black and white striped blazer, and I did it without looking like a jailbird (that was actually my biggest concern when I bought the blazer!). Black blazers are always a must-have in your closet, but sometimes it's nice to be able to throw on a piece that just makes a statement, and this blazer from TJ Maxx definitely helped pull my almost-all-black outfit together. The key to any blazer is definitely the fit. Never should a blazer be too loose or baggy! Structure is the key. This striped blazer doesn't have any buttons on the front, however it does have shoulder pads that keep it from being too slouchy. Aside from my striped blazer, I've seen a lot of patterned blazers at Target and Forever 21! How do you all feel about patterned blazers? Be sure to let me know in the comments below or Tweet / Instagram your thoughts! Have a great Wednesday..
