There are a few wardrobe essentials you can add to your closet that will make your life significantly easier. Finding that perfect white T-shirt, a little black dress, and of course, that sharp blazer, will for sure take some weight off your back, and will get rid of every modern girl's Dilemma: "I have many clothes, still I have nothing to wear".
But finding the perfect blazer with a sharp tailoring that becomes the perfect evening wear to-go, is just one of the milestones you will have to reach. The ultimate goal is achieving the perfect outfit (or a series of them), and to do that, you need to pair it wisely and, above all, creatively.
So when deciding to buy 'that wardrobe staple', it has to be a dependable piece that you can turn to time and time again. It can be perceived as boring or safe, but with the right inspiration you can turn it into a statement piece; it should be able to jump from season to season, and from style to style, without looking awkward.
Your favorite blazer can transform from a piece that was created as a protection against the elements, into a statement piece that is the center of your outfit. After all, blazers are meant to elevate any look and they offer many layering opportunities that can vary throughout the entire year.
There are many ways to pair a blazer, depending on the style you want to achieve: work outfits, summer outfits, dresses and blazers, jeans and blazers, etc. But today we will explore one in particular: creating a tuxedo dress outfit (or blazer dress) with your favorite blazer.
Depending on your favorite blazer these kinds of outfits are worn as transitional outfits (i.e. winter-spring and fall-winter), but if your blazer is closer to be a coat, it can be worn in winter too. Also, if you have a sleeveless blazer it can be worn in summer paired with midiskirt and cropped trousers and lace-up sandals for an effortless summertime look. The list of possible outfits is endless.

When you feel like something is missing, add these two elements and your look will instantly will be chic and smart. They simply add edge.
