TrioThursdays: Trail Blazer

One night when I entered the gym and the sight of my crush greeted me in one of those arm machines, I still remember how his eyes were fixated in one item of clothing that’s hanging in my gym bag – my glen plaid blazer at work. Is it just me (haha!) but it’s as if I can already read his thought bubble about me “Oh, she’s that power woman at work.”

Okay, so maybe I’m just willing for him to think that way because unfortunately he still hasn’t talked to me (but I’m positive he will VERY SOON, haha!) which means he has zero clue about what I do except for the fact that I teach a dance class in the gym. BUT, it’d be wrong for him not to think so especially for some big shot like him in the journalism world. :P  Because, inasmuch as you know you like me babbling about my crush, I’m gonna segue now to today’s topic – blazers and its power association.

As Vogue said, you don’t need a complete suit to channel power - just a good blazer. A good blazer can take you beyond the usual 9 to 5 of interviews and presentations to looking polished even in the happy hours. You could tell how I’m such a proponent in my earlier posts like here. And while you know that it’s not the first time I tackled this plaid blazer trend, I’m reiterating now how this is such a “buy now, wear forever” piece that should be in your closet specially that blazers will be a major trend this S/S 18. So for fresher ways to wear it, here are my three latest looks for today’s hashtag. Enjoy :)
