As much as I love wearing all the the season's trendiest pieces (off-the-shoulder forever), sometimes I just feel my best in classics. In fact, there is nothing that I love more than wearing a pair of distressed denim with a tailored blazer or classic button down, which also happens to be my go-to outfit when I'm rushing out the door. January also tends to be a time when I cut back on my shopping. Sure there are some really great sales going on, so I may get an item or two, but nothing major is being added to my closet. Which means I need to be creative when putting outfits together, and classics make the perfect pieces to restyle. Layer a white button down under a lace up sweater, or throw a blazer over your slip dress or lace camisole. In fact, blazers are my favorite items to restyle because they can make almost any outfit appear put together. The blazer I am wearing is from J.Crew and I've had it for years! I layered it over my Rails plaid button down and love how it made my plaid appear polished and sophisticated. To add a little edge to my otherwise preppy look, I paired my blazer with fringe hem jeans, and finished my outfit with a gold choker. I love how this look could easily take me from a meeting, to lunch with the girls, or be a great option for a causal Friday.
