What to Wear: The Sleeveless Blazer

In need of a wardrobe item that creates the perfect #powerlook? Then I've got one for ya! The very versatile Sleeveless Blazer! You might have heard it being called other names such as a "vest" or a "waistcoat", all the same but describes different varieties (fur vests etc.). Although the classic long sleeved blazer can never be replaced and is also a necessity in its own right, a Sleeveless Blazer, like the one I'm wearing is a great alternative to create a chic or professional look. It can even be dressed down for a more casual outfit.

For this look I wanted to create a Fall #powerlook with a tiny bit of sass! (because as a girlboss, a powerlook can be any outfit that you feel totally powerful in! You make the rules!) I love combining different style personalities into one look for a unique approach. I used this sleeveless blazer with zipper detailing as a completer piece to finish the look. Under it I added a horizontal striped top that created an illusion of length in my upper body when paired with bell bottom (flare legged) high waist pants. I am pretty petite, so this created balance for me. The zipper detailing on my blazer and criss-crossed cleavage area on my top gave me a rocker-esque vibe that I love.

**Tip: If you are petite/short like I am, when wearing a trend such as bell bottom or flare legged pants, which can tend to make a short gal look even shorter, be sure to create balance by elongating your upper body. You can do this by wearing a fitted top or horizontal stripes.
