blazers & bodysuits

Give blazers an update with a daring bodysuit and military details.

A couple weeks ago, I started a new job, and while I can wear anything I want, I’ve found myself wearing this blazer several days a week. Normally, I hate blazers. I hate pantsuits and anything that screams “corporate.” I always hated how restricted they made me feel and how I just never felt like myself when wearing one.

But I found this one in a vintage shop while in London last fall and just fell in love. I love anything with military details and this blazer fit like it was made for me. It’s lightweight and perfect for San Francisco weather. It’s become my go-to jacket to dress up my usual jeans and a tee uniform.

Here, I’ve paired the blazer with this strappy bodysuit from Urban Outfitters. It shows a lot more skin than I’m used to but I’m a sucker for a cool back. Plus, it pairs well with just about everything and adds the perfect amount of confidence to any look.

Vintage gems can be hard to find, but I’ve found a few similar military blazers on Etsy (a great resource for vintage clothes). You can check out my picks here, here, and here.
