It’s all about the oversized black blazer – one of those perfect wardrobe staples. It can be worn with all the classics – jeans, skinny pants, a pencil skirt, etc. – and it’s also a great and contemporary way to pair with a dress for events this holiday season. Jennifer Laurence completely nailed the look recently for an appearance on The Late Show with Dave Letterman. Wearing head-to-toe Antonio Berardi, Lawrence couldn’t have looked more confident and chic. She (her stylist) accessorized the look with sexy ankle strap heels (another important wardrobe staple), awesome retro gradiated sunglasses and the perfect shade of red lipstick, which I’ll never stop loving.
A black oversize blazer is also a good investment piece because it’s a true classic and something you’d for sure get your money’s worth. But it’s also not necessary to spend thousands of dollars. Because of the growing popularity in oversize blazers, they’re not difficult to find in a wide range of prices. And how perfect does it look with a fitted red dress? Black and red has always been a killer combo – it just works.
So for your next cocktail party or holiday event consider wearing an oversized black blazer over a fitted red dress. It’s a sexy, empowering and classic look. And it’s a look that can work for many different age groups. Simply pair the blazer with a red dress that feels right on you.
