Vintage Glamour

If I have to pick one item for a 'must-have' pieces in my wardrobe, it'd be a blazer/jacket! A blazer or a jacket can turn any boring outfits into a more elegant look! Don't you think? =)
What I love about blazers is that you can pair it with anything — a t-shirt, a tank top, a sweater, and just about anything! You can roll the sleeves up a bit, for some added edge.

Just look at the girl! She wears a dull colored t-shirt, but she looks instantly chic after pairing it with the blazer! 

Anyways, I have a few pieces of blazers and jackets in my closet.. and they are mostly in dark colors.. I don't know why, but when it comes to blazers and jackets..I prefer them in dark colors rather than in bright ones..

And this season's must-have item is the Embellished Blazer! Last time, it was the 'Boyfriend Blazers'. But now, they 'upgrade' it a bit with some detailing! The suited-up style is getting a bit glitzier these days, ey?! Everything is blingbling or has some embellishment or some detailing in an outfit! But yeah. I do loveeee the epaulets, especially! I think they are pretty cool, on a blazer or a jacket!

What I love about this style is that the blazers now are slightly more fitted as compared with the Boyfriend Blazer, and with a bit more volume in the shoulders for that extra drama! This season’s embellished blazers incorporate beads, sequins, studs, and more, for a look that’s edgier, more eye-catching, and ready to hit the town!

Oh well.. I loveee this style so much! I think this style can turn a jacket, from that professional to everyday look, with a bit of glam added, without looking too much! I've seen a lot of great pieces from TopShop, Warehouse, Karen Millen, and so on.. And I'm so gonna collect some! hehe.. I love the shoulder detail trend, as it makes you look versatile and polished!

Despite that extra shimmer, I think these picks would still remain chic and stylish, and does not look like you're overdressed or something! I think it's edgy. It's vintage yet modern... And simply fab! hehe. You can wear it with a dress for that girlie look, or dress it up your favourite skinny jeans and a tank top with that blazer, and of course, with a pair of super high heels!

Don't you think the shoulder detail, looks more chic and sleek than your high school prefect uniform?? haha ;p

I wore this vintage jacket with a zebra printed tank top to add a little vintage-modern vibe, which is quite retro, but without looking dated!

I'm lovin' my new jacket!

Okayyy.. Epaulet/Embellished Blazers, you're now on top of my list!!! Gotta hunt for more!!
