You’ve heard the saying that fashion is wearable art, right? Look no further than this stunning Farrah Khan sequin blazer to confirm that idea. Every now and then, you’ll come across a garment that you know will make a statement, and you must build your outfit around that one piece. It’s bold, it’s one of a kind, and it’s something truly special. When I was able to get my hands on this beautiful black and white blazer, I knew that I wanted to create a look with a little bit of edge that was, overall, still feminine and a little bit sexy.
The intricate beading and sequin hand work on this blazer is incredible. There are vintage glamour elements, but it’s also a sophisticated look. The loose, oversized boyfriend tailoring also adds a small element of relaxation to what could be a very costume-like garment. It truly was designed perfectly, and can be the center of so many different looks.
I decided to wear a simple white button up shirt that’s a little bit sheer and silky. I love how crisp the shirt is, and its refinement adds to the sophistication of the look. I tucked the shirt into an asymmetrical black skort, for a super on-trend piece that’s both fashionable and complementary to the rest of the outfit. You could definitely do a black dress trouser instead of a skort, but I wanted to keep this outfit a little bit feminine.
I also added hints of navy to my outfit with my accessories to incorporate the biggest neutral color this season. My shoes are from Burberry, and they are black T-Straps with hints of navy textured snakeskin elements on the strap and heel. These navy accents add a modern and unique touch to such a classic and popular shoe.
Now my bag … say hello to the new addition to my Chanel obsession! I bought this on my recent trip to New York and I have paired it with so many outfits since then! Not only does it complement the navy in the shoes, but it speaks to the sophistication of this outfit with the iconic brand. I love this bag for its bright navy color, classic shape, and interesting embossments in the leather.
Pearls are also a fail-proof way of adding to the refinement of an outfit, and so I knew this Chanel pearl necklace would be perfect. I also added some dainty gold jewelry for a boost of femininity.
I thought the icing on this fashion cake would be a dark, bold lip color for a little bit of modern edge. The smokey eye accomplishes the same thing.
