Blazing the Way w/ Blazers & Suits

I had the pleasure of teaming up with Bonobos for a fall inspired look book inspired by one of their hottest men's suits looks. I absolutely love wearing blazers and pairing a blazer with a fall outfit brings a crisp defined look to an array of looks especially distressed, ripped jeans- one of my favs.

I believe that a great suit adds an extra flair of confidence and if you don't want to do the whole look, a blazer is quick addition that'll create a polished look.

This white and black tuxedo look below was the inspiration to my look. I love how this suit creates such a uniformed and well-put together image. It's a great fall look that can continue right into the holiday and into the New Years- think New Years bash!

The Inspiration



I chose this tuxedo inspired blazer from Anarchy Street and panaled skinny pants for a black and off white timeless look. 

Suited Up: How to Dress the Part
  •  Fit starts with the shoulders: The jacket should grab your shoulders snuggly but not be overly tight. If the shoulders fit, pretty much anything else can be adjusted.
  • Length matters: To determine the appropriate length, you should be able to cup the bottom of the suit with your arms by your side.
  • Show some shirt: A flexible but general rule of thumb is to have a quarter-inch of your shirt cuff showing. If you’re wearing a heavier cuff, like a French cuff, you may want to show a little more.
Thanks for reading and leave tips on how to find the perfect fit for blazers and suits!

OOTD

Old Post: 10/1/2014 *UPLOAD ISSUES*

This is one of the reasons why I get so excited about fall; knee high boots, wool hats, leather everything and vests! Cheers to pumpkin lattes, earth tone colors, decorative fall flower pots and everything that makes our hearts smile when thinking of autumn.

My Weekend & Family Love

Delayed Post: 9/27/2014

I had a really nice weekend! Surrounded by my loved ones all weekend long is all I need. Words can't express the love I have for my family- immediate and extended.

We celebrated life, love and togetherness despite somber news of the passing of my uncle. I'm cherishing every moment I have with my dear ones and making it my mission not to allow the petty things to be a distraction. Above all selfless love wins! 






Have a peaceful, safe and successful week friends!

God loves you!

Truly,

Rachel
