Outfit: Skirt (Thrifted, love these here, here, here) ◇ Blazer (Thrifted, love these here, here, here) ◇ Belt (here) ◇ Shoes (similar here)
This look has a few “trends” that I am thankful for this year, can you guess what they are?
The first being the oversized blazer. I have been spotting oversized blazers everywhere, paired with short shorts, pants, dresses, everything. I talked a little bit about my love for thrifting in my last post and one of my favorite items to thrift are blazers. Oversized, vintage, padded shoulders blazers. I love the heck out of them and if I could wear them everyday, I would. Which is why I am so glad that they are back. I love them so much that I even look through the men’s section for them and that is where I found this particular one.
Another trend in this look are definitely the animal prints. I have always loved animal prints and it puts a smile on my face when I see all sorts of prints styled on mannequins at department stores or fashion spreads these days.
I think the color brown is one of the colors for Fall 2019, at least according to looks that I spotted on runway pictures. Although it has never been one of my go to colors, I definitely like the maturity of this color. I also love the versatility as it comes in so many different shades and for that reason can fit so many different complexions. I especially how it looks paired with black.
Finally, the last trend is the column skirt, but think the Claire Huxtable kind of column skirt. Bias cut skirts are very popular right now especially a particular leopard print, silk one that every influencer and their mama have right now (you know the one I am referring to :). But this denim skirt is another one of my thrifted finds, picked it up at my local Goodwill for about $5 and I also love pairing it for my library study sessions with flat mules, a tank and of course, an oversized blazer.
