Annabelle of Viva Luxury in a Structured Tweed Blazer
On the way to Italy I download a few Netflix shows to watch and i am a few episodes to the Netflix series Styling Hollywood. Not the best program I have ever seen but great for something to have on in the background. The reason I bring it up is because in the third episode called Who’s the Boss B*tch? the team dresses Sabrina Carpenter in a black and white Tom Ford power suit for the 2018 People’s Choice Awards Outfit and they certainly make it work. This led me to thinking, while I am not sure I would rock the look without a shirt nor pay the $4,380 price tag there is something so chic about this look and that both of the pieces can work as separates.
I then started a blog post about the power pantsuit but stopped half way through because there is something about 4pm sunsets and being in lockdown that makes this just not seem super practical right now. Thus I am going to pivot and share a bit more about structured blazers because with the world of never ending video calls this seems much more practical and realistic. One of my past style icons, Annabelle Fluer, still continues to be the epitome of chic even six years after I first featured her on Sparkles & Shoes. Thus, today she is my structured blazer inspiration featured in the photo above and a few of the ones below:

I have linked a few of Annabelle’s in the round up below but for the most part they were either sold out (as they were from a few seasons ago) or more than $1,000 which for most of you is a bit of your range. Thus, here are 15 of my favorite structured blazers for this season:
What do you think of a structured blazer?
Not a fan of the plaid on both the top or the front. I think either with a white jacket or black pants or some variety of complimentary colors would be great. Makes me a bit dizzy to look at the all plaid.
What do you think?
Ohh, the Revolve one you linked to has been on my wish list for a while!
I have nowhere to wear a blazer to right now but I do like the idea of an investment piece. It is something that my mom always stressed. Better to have a few high priced “forever” pieces that will never go out of style that a bunch of trendy stuff.
Invest good money in a few staples and go lower priced on the trendy or color of the year pieces. I still sometimes have a hard time sticking to that. Do you?
I remember your feature on Annabelle, she really does have great style!
