Let’s talk about styling red blazers! If you follow me, you know that I love blazers and wear them often. I also tend to thrift blazers more often than not as the savings are simply amazing. Blazers are a must-have pieces of clothing in the closet of every woman. They can be combined with various clothes and adapted to all sorts of styles – perfect for all occasions.
A red blazer is a classic piece of clothing that will bring freshness to your fashion combinations. I thrifted this corduroy Ralph Lauren blazer from Goodwill in Annapolis, MD. It set me back $12.00! This is such a deal, as a typical Ralph Lauren blazer retails over $150.
For this casual chic look, I paired my red blazer with my workhorse denim aka chambray shirt. I originally bought this chambray shirt from Charlotte Russe for only $8, during one of their season sales. Right now you can get it for $4.99! Seriously, can you imagine brand new is cheaper than the thrifty price. Grab one or two now, as you won’t be disappointed. This shirt is versatile in every sense of the word, and if you need some inspiration, you can check out these looks featuring this chambray shirt, here, here, or here.
Daring to be a little bold, I decided to rock this Express striped bandage mini skirt. I thrifted this skirt for under $6, and wore it a few times with a simple white tee. However, wanting to experiment a little, I decided to wear it with the red blazer and chambray shirt. I’ll be honest with you, I am not too comfortable wearing mini skirts. But, wearing this mini with this red blazer and a collared shirt, untucked so just a little piece of the skirt sticks out underneath, definitely gives the look a more casual and down-to-earth appeal.
Completing this outfit are these gorgeous red block heels. I thrifted these heels from New To You Consignment in Annapolis, MD, for $13. I love the gold double straps, the bright red hue and of course, the block heel. This was the perfect addition to completing this look, wouldn’t you say?
