Last night, songstress Chrisette Michele rocked the Grammy Awards’ red carpet in a colorful Etro suit, white pumps and with two chocolatey guys by her side. She beautified her look with fire engine red lips coupled with stiletto nails and a kinky curly blond hightop. I love that she went for an unconventional look, plus the bra adds a dose of sex appeal. Bravo!
Chrisette’s menswear-inspired Grammy ensemble got me thinking of what a great printed blazer can do for a gal’s look. Here are some worth investing in:
Look #1: Alice + Olivia blazer (sale alert!)
Try a bold red printed Alice + Olivia blazer coupled with a triangle bra, Saint Laurent leather pants and ankle strap heels. Add Pixie Market gold rings, MAC Viva Glam lipstick and nude Bobbi Brown nail polish. A spritz of Tom Ford‘s Sahara Noir seals the deal!
Look #2: 10 Crosby Derek Lam blazer
Go for poppy prints with this blazer by 10 Crosby Derek Lam. Add on Frame Denim‘s white leather tux stripe jeans, Gianvito Rossi pumps and sleek gold hoops. For beauty- try a smoky eye by NARS, silver mani and nude lips!
Look #3: Karl Lagerfeld vintage (only 1 left in stock!)
Dig into fashion history with this Karl Lagerfeld vintage blazer. Sex it up with a Bailey 44 leather crop top and Halston Heritage leather pants (sale alert!). Bring on the pretty with these gorgeous Sergio Rossi heels. Heavenly. Finish it all off with some cheeky perfume by Colette, wine hued lips and gold tips.
