I don’t think I can trace back my love of blazers. It’s not as though I was a wee Huntress wearing a blazer in elementary school. (Side note, would that have made me the coolest kid in school, or the oddest?). Anyway, well, apparently over the years, I developed a strong love of blazers and it just never left me. As Elle Woods says, “Always dress the part.”

Fashion Huntress tips:
1) I last featured this blazer all girly-ed up with an all pastel look. The versatility of blazers is basically endless, if you ask me. In the look above, I was able to dress the blazer down with jeans and boots, for a casual work look. In the look below, the blazer was dressed up as full blown business. Bottom line: you can’t go wrong with a tweed blazer.
2) For some reason, I really have a hard time understanding how to pick out jeans for myself. It’s my fashion Achilles heel! I find that the best thing to do is go straight to a jeans store and ask for help. I highly recommend the same should you be looking for an item that you find difficult to style/pick out for yourself. In speciality stores (jeans, shoes, etc), the sales personnel is generally quite knowledgeable in their products/pieces and can really help you out!
Anyone else have tips for picking out jeans? Have a favorite shop? Thanks so much for stopping by, readers! I appreciate it so much!
