Blazer + Button Down

In my opinion, there’s nothing more preppy than a blazer paired with a crisp button down shirt. Blazers and button down shirts are two classic wardrobe staples that every girl should have in her closet. I don’t know what it is, but the second I put either of these pieces on, I instantly feel more polished. While I own a few blazers, this is the first time I’ve sported this red J.Crew blazer. I’ve always admired J.Crew’s Schoolboy blazer’s because of their structured look and variation of colors. At the end of last summer, I happened to be at J.Crew during the first day of a major sale and came across a single Schoolboy blazer extremely marked down. Even though it was a size smaller than I usually wear, I bought it, knowing how much regret I’d feel if I were to let it go.

With that being said, if you plan on wearing a thicker shirt under your blazer, I’d recommend going up a size with your blazer. I’m one of those people who can’t stand feeling restricted in my clothes (especially in layers), so I think a looser fitting blazer is an easy fix for people like me. Of course, if you plan on wearing a more lightweight material under the blazer, staying true to size is not a problem.

    I agree, a blazer and a button are as classic as you can get! Throw in a few polka dots and you’ve got it made! Love this outfit on you Olivia!
