Blazer Top

Feeling kind of futuristic in this outfit! I'm not sure if its the shape of the silhouette caused by the full skirt or the black and white color contrast or the smoothness of the liquid leggings! Latest obsession are these liquid leggings!!! Surprisingly they go with almost everything!

I was browsing through one of Stella McCartney's collections and really loved how the models were wearing really big blazers tucked into very feminine skirts. I decided to try the look myself tucking a white blazer into a full skirt. Here I'm using a tailored/fitted blazer instead of the loose, oversized blazer that McCartney uses because the combination with a full skirt would have been way to costumey, for everyday life that is! My rule of thumb is always add a belt when you're wearing a full skirt because it helps cinch the waist and avoids that balloon effect. It gives the silhouette just the right amount of dramatic shape.

I'm wearing a Forever 21 white blazer, pinstripe skirt from Rampage, liquid leggings from Target, Calvin Klein belt, and Forever 21 chain necklace, and my favorite Enzo Angiolini pumps.
