Office style series | Longline blazer

One trend I am absolutely loving this season is the longline blazer! They are sleek, stylish and sexy (basically every adjective that starts with an “s”)!

After mega-babe Emily Ratajkowski surprised us all with her seemingly sudden courthouse wedding, I had to get my hands on the gorgeous, mustard yellow longline co-ord she wore!

I don’t normally shop at Zara–the quality is usually lacking and their company values are extremely questionable–but these pieces were priced higher than usual for the retailer, so I figured they were worth a try. Thankfully, the fabric is thick, the color is vivid and the buttons look strong.

This suit has a relaxed, retro-inspired flared fit despite its tailored appearance, but the adjustable tie belt emphasizes the waist. I love how Em Rata styled it with a chic black hat and a simple pair of heeled sandals.

She definitely caught a lucky break in New York’s blustery winter, because by the time my suit arrived, temperatures were below freezing again. So, I styled it with my go-to office shoes, my heeled black booties.

I kept my makeup neutral and fresh because the suit makes such a statement; I wore my favorite blush by Tarte called Seduce, a rosy nude, as well as ColourPop’s Lumière, a muted mauve lip.

As time goes on, I definitely want to play around styling this suit, both as a set and as separates. And of course I can’t wait to wear it with a floppy hat and heeled sandals à la Em Rata.
