On my previous What I Wore post (Casual as Usual), I shared to you my every day style — a simple blouse paired with denim shorts and my choice of shoes. But if you’re heading out at night (or on a meeting), that outfit may be too simple! While I’m all for the “Wear What You Want” mantra, there are instances that a simple blouse and denim are considered underdressed to an event.
So what did I do? I wore a hat and a classic black blazer.
A lot of people don’t wear blazers here in the Philippines, and I understand why: IT’S JUST SO HOT. But in colder temperature settings, like most indoor events and work, where air-cons are often centralized and unadjustable, a blazer becomes an essential as it provides comfort, cover up, and in this instance, glams up your everyday outfit. Not only does it make your outfit a little less casual, but it also adds a touch of elegance.
