Styling a red blazer with leather pants for work

Statement piece: Red blazer

The red blazer was the signature piece of former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. She would wear it with a black straight mini skirt or black pants. After her election, many young women dressed for fun in the mid night sun run in a red blazer.

A red blazer is an eternal classic. It looks great with jeans, a chambray shirt and leopard print pumps. A very classic office look to revisit when you have to rescue last minute dressing problems.

Doubling on the statement pieces: Red blazer plus leather pants

Today’s OOTD incorporates two statement pieces: Said red blazer and leather pants.

Style your outerwear for a great first impression

It is still cold in Alaska. For the commute to work, I added pieces that all have brown shades and added red gloves and a red floral scarf to tie the red booties into the outfit. See here again the red repeats in the outerwear.

Hot red blazer with pants make a great work outfit

In this OOTD, I went for chocolate brown and repeated the brown with the belt and layering top. I framed the outfit with red booties.
