What To Wear Underneath a Fitted Blazer

Thanks to Olivia Pope, Victoria Beckham and friends the fitted blazer is all the rage. The fitted blazer does not lend itself very friendly to billowy blouses and long sleeve tops. Here are my recommendations for what you can wear underneath your blazer.

We’ll start with two options from the Limited Scandal collection. I’m in love with this Origami Collar Blouse (wish it came in more colors) and this Pleat Collar Blouse.

Fall Trend: (Faux) Leather Midi Skirts


Provided you have not lived under a rock this October, you may have noticed that leather is everywhere. It’s on sweaters, our boucle jackets and now it’s making its way to our skirts. The leather midi skirt is the new must have for fall and I wager it will continue¬†to stay on trend for winter as well. Thanks to the animals rights and vegan movements, we are seeing a lot of pleather (faux leather) at the stores and on the runways. Best part? It’s usually cheaper! My one morsel of advice is to choose a length that will suit your height. At 5’3 a long midi skirt on me could make me look like a Duggar, so I will choose one that appears to fall at the knees of the 5’10 model.
