Behold, one of my go-to outfits for work particularly during this cooler Autumn weather.  If winter is for coats, Autumn is when the trusty blazer gets thrust into the spotlight! I’m sporting Everlane’s ‘80s Blazer in black.  You might recognise the style from one of my earlier blog posts where I shared the dusty blue version.  It’s made from Italian wool and has exaggerated shoulders and a slightly oversized fit, a nod to the ‘80s.  With additional room in the blazer, it easily accommodates a knit.

Size wise, I opted for a size 00 in the black blazer, sizing down from the size 0 that I have in the dusty blue.  The smaller size is slightly more fitted on the torso and the arms but it still maintains an oversized feel.

To bring this look to life, I’m wearing my Sezane Leontine Knit in ecru and navy that has been a much loved piece in my wardrobe for the past year.  While it’s typically one of my off-duty pieces, I really enjoyed styling the knit with the dressier items in my wardrobe for a day of work.  For that added bit of texture, I’ve relied on my Anine Bing Silk Satin Midi Skirt, one of my favourite purchases this year that has been put to good use (see here and here).  And to cap it all off, I’m sporting my Manolo Blahnik Maysale mules and I’ve styled my Alpaca Knit Sweater as a scarf by draping it over my shoulders (one of my favourite ways to get more bang for buck with my knits). 

For tonal looks like this, I really love mixing textures to add a bit of interest to my outfit which I have found very effective considering the neutrals that make up the majority of my wardrobe.  

Thanks for stopping by!
