Valentines Wear One Piece Five Ways: Red Blazer

For the Valentines Day edition of Wear One Piece Five Ways, I’m featuring this vivid red blazer I picked up last Christmas from the modbod store at University Mall (one of the places I truly miss shopping in Utah!). Instead of most notched lapels you find on a blazer, this one has a shawl collar is decidedly more feminine — perfect for Valentines Day! Regardless of where you’re going Valentines Day, here are five ways you can wear a red jacket.

Is your beau taking you dancing on Valentines Day? This Downeast Basics skirt was made for the dance floor! (earrings – francine’s, ruffle tank – nordstrom, red obi belt – thrifted, teal tiered skirt – downeast basics, shoes – franco sarto)

To channel the rockstar in you, pair your jacket with skinny jeans and some edgy earrings. (earrings – francine’s, tank top – jacob, skinny jeans – kohls, black heels – etienne aigner)

If you’re going for a sexy Valentines Day look a la Victoria Beckham, pair your jacket with a curve-hugging skirt and then cinch it at the waist for an hourglass silhouette. Ooh la la! (earrings – gifted, tank top – jacob, red belt – kohls, black sequin skirt – downeast basics (featured in O! Magazine!), black shoes – etienne aigner)

For a sophisticated evening out to the symphony or theater for Valentines, pair your red jacket with a black maxi dress like this one from Shabby Apple. (earrings – francine’s, dress – shabby apple, shoes – franco sarto)

For a more artistic look, find a patterned top with red in it and pair it with a lighter skirt. (earrings – the bay, paisley blouse – nordstrom rack, red obi belt – thrifted, split pencil skirt – thrifted, shoes – franco sarto)

  1. Love the sequin skirt outfit! Knock out! Other fave is dressed down with dark denims. I am so gaga over that blazer.

  2. Thanks for the hair compliment and feedback! I totally love short hair — it\’s so sassy, fun, and full of personal style. One way to take a risk with your hair is to cut blunt bangs.
