Article Story: J. Crew Rhodes Blazer-a-plenty Options!

Figured I would have some fun with this and do some combinations of 1 blazer, done 3 different ways with diverse accessory styling. The article of clothing in discussion: the J. Crew Rhodes Blazer in Navy/Black.

First Way:

The Rhodes Blazer with a J. Crew Long sleeve horizontal stripe shirt,
Free People Cropped Distressed Denim,
Lanvin Python Toe Sneakers
& Proenza Schouler Tweed Medium PS1.

Outfits Details:

A great way to keep prim and proper with some colorful finishes and still feel comfortable and not uptight. Polished yet casual with jeans and some good accessories.


Second Way:

Same blazer with the same top but adding in:
Coach Mini Bennett Crossbody in Floral Burgundy
& Tods Light Brown Loafers

Outfit Details:

Keeping the same blazer, top, and denim, this is another way to have a whole new look with a change of accessories. Keeping in tune with my prim and quirky theme, you can add even more polish with a good pair of leather loafers. That and keeping one piece fun, like this Coach Floral Mini Bennett, does a good job of that. This can be an evening outfit or mid-day, "Just going out for a sec" look.

Finally.....

Third Way:

Same blazer, Gap Denim Tencel Button Down Shirt, Same Denim by Free People,
& Gucci Horsebit Loafers (An older style)

Outfit Details:


Keeping some of the same items, I included a pair of classic Gucci loafers and showcased a denim on denim look that is not rigged (used light washes with some distressing to them and worn in displays). First time experimenting with denim on denim and it was a nice success with a blazer, as without it, I doubt it. The loafer brings in a nice polish and with the blazer, its not a stuffy outfit and you can wear this anywhere!


All of this was in my closet and I only added in the Rhodes Blazer from my adventure at J. Crew yesterday.  Adding in that one statement or one classic and anchoring piece to mix with other items you may have and you can get new and successful looks without breaking your wallet.

Not a bad way to get everything worn and in a good cycle, you can go through the closet and truly see what you want to keep and what does not work no matter what (that can be donated).


Being cinematic about getting her yesterday on Snapchat. (LOL)

P.S. - I might make article story a new feature for the site, I did things like this before in the past and never followed through but this time, I just might.
