Black and Gold - September 2016

By this point in the month you'd think you were done with the chunky coats and woolly scarves and be in blazers and tees. Not so in Sydney! Surprisingly, it is still too cool for just a blazer, but surely it's bound to warm up any time soon - preferably very soon! In any case, I have been on the look-out for the perfect transition blazer, especially one with gold-tone buttons and am pleased to say I have found one!

This black, double-breasted blazer is from Forever New and is a great buy. It’s a tailored fit, so contours to your body creating a flattering shape. It is also fully lined so, it’s comfortable to wear. The thing that surprised me most though is the quality; it definitely looks, as well as feels, a lot more than its $100 price tag.

For me, a black blazer, especially one with gold-tone buttons is a closet staple due to its classic cut and versatility. The gold buttons add an air of class and authority to your outfit as well as some flair. You can create so many different looks with this slick blazer. For example, it looks equally as good in the office paired with an A-line skirt or tailored trousers, a white shirt or cami and classic pumps or strappy heels for a professional look or teamed with jeans or shorts and a white t-shirt for casual chic.
