We’re officially one week into January and resolutions are still in play, the new season of The Bachelor has started (and I already despise all the girls) and I’m back with a new look post to start the year off stylish.
The start of a very long winter typically makes sweatpants and bulky sweater even more appealing than usual. I’m trying my best to make sure I try to shy away from my tendencies and embrace dressy looks and try new options the season. This look is a great example of that. I’ve already welcomed turtlenecks with open arms, but now it’s about how to pull in other pieces like blazers to dress them up.
This navy velvet blazer is a such a show stopper in this winter look. Against my white turtleneck from Uniqlo is great for a day at work when you’re feeling a little fancy and even better for night out in the winter. Instead of going for the standard khakis or black pants, I went for a cobalt blue color, to add an extra pop. A pair of printed pants would be another way to add texture to the look!
I love this look because it’s just an easy way to elevate a rather easy winter ensemble. Anytime you add color, texture, or pattern, especially with basic pieces, it’s a win. Here’s to hoping our outfits and resolutions remain in tact as we get through the first month of the new year!
