Two-Ways Tuesdays: The Checkered Blazer
Hi! Welcome back.
So I’m introducing a new thing to this blog called “Two Ways Tuesdays”. This is basically going to be a blog series where I take ONE piece and style it TWO ways. The reason I wanted to do this is because I see a lot of bloggers always wearing different things and never wearing the same thing twice, and I believe it’s not only impractical but it also leads to another even scarier reality and that is mass consumerism and waste. I myself have been struggling with having such a large amount of clothing that I have to give it away, donate it, or sell it at such a fast pace that sometimes it starts to give me anxiety. Not only that but never wearing the same thing twice is expensive and irresponsible to the environment. Did you know that the fashion industry is the #2 cause of pollution on this planet next to only fossil fuels? Gross. Instead of being a part of the problem, I’d love to empower us all to actually reuse and rewear the things that we love starting with today. This is such a large conversation that I’ve been meaning to share more on here, but we’ll start with this series to at least showcase ways to wear things more than once. The checkered blazer is actually a piece you can wear 20 ways, but for the sake of longevity of blog posts I’ll be keeping it to two, lol!
One way I’m styling this is with a corduroy mini skirt, sock boots, a cropped black turtleneck sweater, and oversized sunglasses! You all have shown so much love about this look on Instagram, but it really is such a great look for any days you need to look pulled together this Fall. If you live in cooler weather, you could easily add tights under the mini skirt as well.
Now for look # 2. The second way I’ve styled this blazer (as you can see) is with ripped denim jeans, a printed cropped blouse, a printed head scarf, and combat boots. Both ways are definitely Fall approved and entirely different from one another. I love how I’ve mixed the prints in option two and how it incorporates denim and combat boots which are practical for Fall weather in most parts of the world! While I can think of 100’s of other ways to wear this checkered blazer, these two are a great start to incorporating a plaid blazer into your fall wardrobe.
Which look do you love more, 1 or 2?
Stay tuned for more “Two Ways Tuesdays” - excited to share more about this new column!
