Last week, I saw the movie A Simple Favor with one of the gals. Of course, Blake Lively can do no wrong, so we had to go see her latest movie. The movie review is a subject for another time (I mean, I have a lot of questions), but I left feeling quite inspired- Not necessarily by the content of the movie, but by the undeniably killer fashion in the film. Blake runs it with power suits and Louboutin heels, and I left feeling the urge to try on my own power suits and add some Louboutin heels to my ongoing wish list.
Taking a cue from the movie, I’ve decided to step up my suiting style. Anyone who knows me will tell you that I have always had an unhealthy love for blazers, but instead of a casual look with a pair of jeans, take a note from Blake next time, and try wearing a blazer with matching pants to elevate your look. Exhibit A & B: I am currently obsessing over this splurge look from ALC and this pinstripe style from Rachel Zoe.
Not only is the power suit an unexpected look, it’s also perfect for work, cocktail parties, a group dinner and so much more. Sometimes taking a fashion risk and stepping outside of what you might normally wear really pays off, and the same can definitely be said about these looks.
I am already looking forward to this movie coming out so I can binge watch it again for more fashion inspo! For now, I’ll just sit back an sip my gin martini a la Blake Lively.
