Guest Post - Natasha - Styling Blazers

Hi Everyone!  It's me Natasha from Required2BeInspired posting today for Daphne!  I'm a stay at home mom living in Northern Canada, I absolutely LOVE fashion, so I use my blog as a way to stay "in touch" with the Fashion community...and sometimes to pretend that I live a much more glamorous life than I actually do!
Today I thought I would share with you how I wore some of my favorite jackets/blazers.  I strongly believe that wearing the right jacket is the perfect way to finish an outfit!
Sparkly GAP Jacket:
love that this jacket is covered in sequins, but doesn't seem too over the top.  For this outfit I wanted a mixture of casual and glamorous elements to create a perfectly balanced look.  This is one of my favorite outfits to date!
Snake Print Draped Jacket
My favorite thing about this jacket is the way it drapes in the front, the way it's cut higher in the back.  For this outfit I wanted to achieve a polished look using just a few simple pieces.  The jacket totally makes the outfit!
Red Thrifted Blazer
 I still can't believe I snagged this blazer for $2.25!  It has a bit of an 80's shape, but by cuffing the sleeves it looks perfectly 2011.  For this outfit chose to pair the red blazer with a fuchsia t-shirt to achieve some subtle color blocking.
Black Draped Blazer
I am so in love with this Blazer!!  The fit is perfect, the high cut back is a trend I've been obsessing over lately, and I love the way it drapes in the front.  I paired this blazer with the pants that my friend Brianna made for me.  The idea behind the outfit was to turn the funky pants into something a person could wear to the office.
Now I want to know what your favorite style of jacket is?


  1. I like your purple dress and that red blazer is amazing! I can imagine it to be combined with short shorts, would also be great :)

  2. She is beautiful!! I especially love that first Gap sparkly jacket - too cute! Thanks for sharing :)

  4. hey,
    I love your good sense of style, especially the blue and white stripes forever 21 dress.
    Would please do me a favor and let me know what label it's from I have been trying to get one.
