Five for Friday: Five Ways to Wear a Little Black Blazer

I have had my LBB (Little Black Blazer) for about 5 years now, and I cannot imagine my life without it! I bought it on sale at The Limited when our mall actually had one for $50 and boy have I gotten my money’s worth!  I think every fashionista around would agree that a black blazer is an absolute must have wardrobe staple for every woman.  Here are 5 ways I have styled mine, but believe me there are way more than 5 ways to style this little gem!

1.   1.  I like to layer my blazer over flowing blouses and leggings.  This also makes for a comfortable outfit. (perfect for a bloated day yeah?)
(Limited Blazer, Vintage blouse, Black House White Market leggings,  BCBG shoes)

2. The simplest way to wear a blazer! I wear this outfit at least once a week, no lie.; a simple white tank, black blazer, and skinnies.  Now, I topped mine off with a Carrie Bradshaw-esque flower and leopard flats just because I get bored with simple outfits!
(Limited Blazer, J. Crew tank, Uniqlo skinnies (best denim ever!), Nine West flats, flower pin bought from Macy’s years ago)

3. This tutu is one of my favorite things I own! I don’t wear it as often as I like, but it is just lovely! This look can work with any poufy, ballerina-ish skirt.  I also LOVE to pair my black blazer with tees. Delish!
(Limited Blazer, H&M tee, American Apparel tutu, Francesca’s shoes and necklace, F21 headband)

4. Oh cut offs and thigh highs.  This has been my favorite combo since I came back from London.  Such a chic pair they make, don’t you think?  I put them with this cute little number I found in the sale section of Urban Outfitters (love their sale section seriously!), then topped it off with the LBB.
(Limited Blazer, UO blouse, A&F shorts, Steve Madden socks, Nine West shoes, J. Crew necklace)

5. A blazer with sequins will always be in style.  So, I took my simple white tank and blazer from my previous outfit and paired it with my sequins mini.   Voila, party ready!!
(Limited blazer, J. Crew tank, Express mini, Steve Madden shoes)

Do you own a Little Black Blazer?? What is your favorite thing to pair it with!!??
Happy Friday Lovelies!!!

I love love the tutu skirt from number 3! and obviously the black blazzer such a must for every girl!

Ashley said...

Yay! I LOVE that tutu of yours...I think I put the white one on my Christmas list. I'm so excited to wear similar things this spring!

And I agree...a little black blazer is a staple piece in a woman's wardrobe. I have a short sleeve one I turn to all the time...sometimes, I have a problem finding blazers that don't make me look bulky. I wish they wouldn't put shoulder pads in the majority of them.

Have a great weekend!

So need to make an LBB one of these days! These options are freaking fab! Cut offs + thigh highs....*swoon*

I also definitely wanted to thank you for the compliments + I'm following you too! It's a real treat to meet a fellow Houstonian blogger ;)

Black blazers are a staple of my wardrobe. You just cannot go wrong with one. I think I have more than ten.
... I'm also a compulsive shopaholic.

Hey lady,
Apologies for the incredibly late reply! This is such a great post, I love all the outfits, although I have to say I have a weakness for the tutu one - perfect pairing.
Have a fabulous weekend.
Thanks for your lovely comment.

These are all such great looks I can't even pick a favorite. That sequined mini is amazing though. Sequins make anything amazing! I haven't gotten to add anything to my store yet cause I'm still trying to figure out how to sell what I already have. Haha. The 'new' sequined dresses are still waiting to go up though and when they do, you'll be the first to know!

Pammy said...

Yes! I love pairing it with a plain shirt and jeans. :P Those are fab ways of dressing up with a blazer. :)

Dahl said...

Totally cute!! I especially love the first pic with the leggings :) Tee hee nice nickname, LBB :)

silvergirl said...

I DO NOT own a LBB! I think I need to run out and get one!

lady sélénite said...

Jodi said...

I wore my LBB last night, they're super versatile and work with anything.

I picked mine up in TK Maxx for £4!!

Love the looks you've created. I have a blazer and particularly like it with sequins - I think it helps ground them.

I love this new feature! I love having ideas to wear something in many different ways! Your new header is amazing, you look uber glamourous and the colours are to die for!

TheChambrayCountess said...

Super cute! I love all of your looks :) It is funny when you buy something basic and then it takes over your wardrobe-in a good way!- what a great purchase!

jill815 said...

I like all the outfits, but especially looks number 2 and 5. Look 2 for the flower, look 5 for the sequins! I never get tired of them! And you look smokin' hot in that outfit. I hope you went out somewhere in that ensemble.

Fashion Limbo said...
