How to Wear a Black Sleeveless Blazer

Over the last couple of #OOTD posts, I’ve been showing you all how to shop your closet.  That’s right, reusing staple pieces and restyling them for an outfit that feels brand new.  Being able to restyle staple pieces and pair them with other staples or trendy pieces puts your wardrobe to work.

Wear it unapologetically

I love the sleeveless blazer below because of its versatility.  You can wear it without a shirt underneath (my favorite) or you can layer it with button ups or blouses to be appropriate for the office.  I decided to wear it without a top for a more casual and effortless look.  To round out the look a bit more, I added my favorite Levi white jeans, pumps, wide tie at the waist belt, snakeskin print handbag and mirrored sunnies.  This look can go from a daytime networking event to evening drinks, easily.

There are so many ways that this sleeveless blazer can be worn throughout the seasons that this would be worthy of being a splurge item.  Pairing this blazer with shorts or high-waisted pants creates a different feel and look that you can rock for several different occasions.

Quick Style Tip: The length of your sleeveless blazer can make it chic or more juvenile.  Opt for a longer length proportionate to your height for an effortless and chic look.
