I know it’s almost summer and all, but jackets and blazers are where it’s at, man. This was a recent revelation, by the way. For years and years, I pretty much ignored ’em, mostly because I thought, “Why bother when you’re just going to take them off as soon as you get inside? Get a cute shirt instead!”
My outlook changed when I realized that they’re one of the quickest ways to not look like a total schlub.
My new philosophy as it pertains to outerwear? I like. Pull on a plain top, like this black tank from Old Navy ($7.50!), a pair of jeans, and a cute jacket or blazer for a simple, fairly stylish look.
This getup here has been my office uniform lately, as Tabs insists upon a professional dress code (strictly enforced).
Oh! — if you’re on the market for a new pair of skinny jeans, I think these ones by AG are so bomb. Earlier this year I walked into a Nordies and awkwardly asked a sales associate to point me toward the closest things to Pajama Jeans…and they handed me these dove gray skinnies.
We’ve been attached at the hip ever since.
And if you happen to be vertically challenged (said the girl barely an inch over five feet tall), they’re great because they don’t have to be hemmed.
In other news, what are you wearing today? Did you dress up or go casual?
