Cut-away Red
















I wore this blazer and top to work with slacks and the same heels. To transition the look from work to post-work happy hour, I change pants. I think it made a huge different in the nature of the look. This cut away jacket is so soft and effortless and it dresses up everything I own. It also has some lovely cuffable sleeves and it quite possibly one of the nicest things I own from Forever21. Surprisingly the cut, shape, and color are just positively classy! An additional fun detail: the belt is reversible - leather alligator style on one side and silver on the other.

Blazer, top: Forever 21 (blazer, similar tank); Pants: H&M; Belt: The Limited (similar); Purse: Coach (similar); Shoes: Connie (Famous Footwear - similar)
