so i know the 12 days of christmas TECHNICALLY don’t even start until christmas day, but, by that time, it’ll be too late to get these gifts for the lady in your life who loves fashion. so, we’re getting a start now, and we’ll lead up all the way to christmas eve (for those who can get away with giving their gift a little late).
let’s talk about jackets first. these are going to be crucial to your work wardrobe in the new year, right? because i KNOW that you’re going to climb that ladder in the coming new year, you’re gonna need some smokin’ hot blazers.
this jacket from city chic is just that, chic. it’s a ponte knit, which means it’s got a little bit of stretch, and that color is gorgeous.
loving this tipped edge blazer by simplybe. it will instantly make an outfit professional and pulled together. i think this would be fantastic with black tights and a skirt, as well as your more traditional pantsuit.
this leatherette jacket from city chic is super sexy. it’s great for fridays at the office or for just kicking your outfit up a notch (or 5). yowza. oh, and it’s lined with leopard print.
and, speaking of leopard print, this velvet leopard print jacket, also from city chic, is versatile. whether you’re in a t-shirt and jeans or leather paneled skirt (hello!), this brings sexy detail to your look. just add a necklace.
this chanel-inspired tweed jacket is spot on, so timeless. it’s for those with advanced style, or for those who haven’t quite figured out their style because it’s so easy to throw it on over basics and go. it’s got all the detailing you need. a must-have. this is from newport news, and it’s available only in misses sizes (which go up to 18, but not 18W), so be careful and look at their sizing chart when you order.
joan rivers touch of sparkle sequin blazer. now i have some qualms about calling this a “touch” of sparkle, but … yeeesssssssaaahhhhhs. a sequin blazer. this is just a closet staple. whether it’s for work or for new years eve, i love it. you need to have it. and it happens to be on sale right now. i’m just sayin.
now they call this the linea by louis dell’olio chain print notch collar blazer. and that’s a lot. i mean, this jacket is a lot, but i feel like, styled the right way, you could be WAH-URKIN this blazer. it also comes in pink and white. i’m seriously considering the white, but the blue feels so nautical that i can’t handle it. thoughts? oh – and free S&H from QVC, too:
holler atcher girl scout! oh, and merry almost christmas y’all. stay tuned for tomorrow’s edition of the 12 days of christmas for SKIRTS.
