Last fall one trend that really took over Iowa City was the classic blazer jacket. Although it isn’t a new trend this season I think it is one that should definitely be utilized now that colder weather is amongst us. A perfect way you could revamp this jacket is by pairing it with a bold pattern. This Fashionista paired her black blazer with a leopard pattern dress. Animal print also isn’t a new trend for the season, but together these two items create a very stylish outfit for fall. I loved her dress not just because of the pattern, but the fabric too. Instead of the typical cotton dress this one was velvet. Not only does the fabric make the dress more suitable for fall/winter, it gave the pattern a nice shine.
This Fashionista sported her outfit for work, but it’s also perfect for the holidays! With Thanksgiving break right around the corner this outfit is appropriate for family events. Her boots were also a nice addition to the outfit. Something to keep in mind when wearing animal print is you don’t want it to look too promiscuous. Heels with this dress might have been too much for a regular day at work, but the flat boots tame down the fierce print. If you’re feeling edgy try pairing heels with an animal print ensemble when going out at night with friends.
Hint: For a blazer jacket try Urban Outfitters. For animal print check out Nasty Gal.
