Celebrity Fashion Crush – The Black Blazer

I personally have learned a lot about style from celebrities, how could I have not, when one of my favorite activities growing up implied tons of celebrity pictures, cropped out from magazines and then masterfully placed into what I loved to call – my fashion journals?

Now, I somehow try to carry on the tradition, as Oteea Land and Photoshop have replaced my old fashion journals, the glue, the glitter and the colored pencils. The joy of what I’m doing remained the same, though.

For some of the special events that require a more elevated look, we can finally give the LBD a well deserved break and switch for the androgynous style. As celebrity love it, the black blazer, paired with black pants, it’s now the chic way to go.

Celebrity-Fashion-Crush---The-Black-BlazerEmma Roberts opted for a relaxed but tailored look by pairing a black blazer, with black skinny pants and a simple white t-shirt. Alexandre Birman Spring 2012 Strappy sandals completed her outfit.

Jessica Alba looked flawless in Tokyo, wearing a black Tommy Hilfiger pantsuit, that she paired with a classic white shirt and complementary black pumps. Stylish!

Lily Collins worked the masculine trend by pairing a black Dolce & Gabbana blazer with a high-waist pair of Paule Ka pants. The delicate ivory ruffle blouse added a Victorian touch, as the look was finished with black pumps and a red box clutch.

Due to the endless styling possibilities – the Black Blazer is a wardrobe essential.

Essentials : Episode 02 – Black Leather Leggings

I know, I know, black leather leggins are not exactly an essential piece in our wardrobe, but somehow this season I begin to think they are. I must say I still don’t own anything leathery, I practically don’t even know why, maybe because it wasn’t my style up until now, but I’m slowly falling into this trend and I think I might try them very soon :D.

To be prepared when that moment comes and also for all of you who do own a pair of leather leggins, the next three looks may come in handy.

The first almost all-black look, gives a little bit of edge to our “on-the-go” pieces and it is Rock&Roll meets Biker Chick inspired but on a softer level. I couldn’t decide on the t-shirt as I found two adorable ones : I Love Cats ( I’m a cat person, yes) and the cute Kate Mouse Tee.
