Tatiana’s Column: Keep It Blazin’

Bonjour, darling readers! I hope you are all enjoying yourselves and taking advantage of the nice weather. I wanted to give you all a little tip when updating your closets with a key staple item: blazers. If you don’t already own a blazer, you should definitely invest in one. You can wear a blazer all year round; yes, you can wear a blazer during the summer, but under the right circumstances, of course! I wouldn’t advise wearing a plaid printed wool blazer in the spring or summer. Instead, I’d save that cozy piece for the fall, but you definitely can wear one made out of lightweight rayon or polyester. A blazer adds an elegant yet sexy touch when worn with a pair of shorts and heels for an intimate dinner during the summer. You can even hang it over your shoulders for a chic look because we know that the summer breeze can be quite chilly sometimes, especially when wearing shorts or a mini dress! Nonetheless, blazers can be worn with jeans, slacks, leggings, dresses, skirts, and shorts.

Recently, I found a few of my mother’s vintage blazers that she sewed when she worked as a seamstress. The single-buttoned navy plaid blazer is made out of 100% pure wool and has a classic look. The pink plaid blazer is also single-buttoned and made out of 100% pure wool. I love the color and how it’s finished with matching pink buttons; it reminds me of something Cher Horowitz would wear. The triple-buttoned cream blazer is made out of 100% wool with 100% acetate lining. It looks like something Sue Ellen “Swell” Crandell designed with the beaded, embroidered, and pleather detailing. You can’t forget the shoulder pads on it either!
XOXO,
Tatiana

5 Ways to Wear a Circle Skirt

by

The circle skirt is this season’s most versatile and flattering wardrobe staple. Named for their shape, which is cut like a big doughnut, circle skirts keep the fullness of the skirt at the hem rather than at the waist. The skirt, tight around your waist, flares out around your thighs, creating an hourglass shape on any body type. Sometimes called a skater skirt, this piece is comfortable and easily adaptable for every occasion and style.

Your entire summer wardrobe could be built around one of these striking skirts–like the Light Up My Life Skirt from Modcloth. A gorgeous black skirt is a great investment because you can wear it not only in the warm seasons but also in the fall and winter too! Here are 5 ways to wear a circle skirt:

Edgy

Who says a skirt has to be feminine? Show off your inner rebel with a form-fitting crop top with a tantalizing metallic zipper closure. A bold color will help you stand out from the crowd.

Bohemian

A tiered crop top in soft hues makes the perfect canvas for your most dangly necklaces. A peek of skin between the skirt and the top gives just a hint of carefree sexiness.
