Guys, I can’t even begin to tell you how much I love my new plaid blazer from Forever 21. I’m all about knowing when to save and when to splurge, and although I’m more than happy to invest in a designer blazer, this has been a go-to for me.
As a plus, you’re saving hella, and you don’t have to worry about dry cleaning because this baby’s machine washable. I love effortless style so I’ve been going with plain tee + skinny jean combos on the regular as of late. And what better way to elevate a simple look like this than with a chic blazer? Yep, that’s what I thought.
This plaid blazer’s made of a polyester, rayon and spandex blend, and it has an open front with patch pockets. It’s not designer quality by any means, but it’s fashionable and perfect for everyday wear. It also oozes menswear vibes, which I personally like. What do you guys think of the design?

Sidebar: if you’re looking for killer skinny jeans, you need to check out your local Aeropostale. I know that sounds crazy, but their bottoms are the bomb.com. I seriously live in their jeggings because they’re comfy but edgy AF. Don’t pay full price for them though because they almost always have a sale going on. I got these while they were buy one, get one so they were around $30 each. This is the style I’m wearing in today’s post!
