As much as I would like to wear blazers or suit, living in a tropical country is becoming a hindrance plus, I sweat easily, which leads me to wearing basic and laid back outfits. However, there are times that I have to get out of my comfort zone and go on power dressing particularly during meetings and events.
What I usually do is to wear a slim fit button down shirt, a blazer and jeans, so that when I’m done with my meeting or event, and I’m off to my errands, I will just remove my blazer for an instant casual wear. Make sure you’re wearing a slim fit button down shirt to avoid bulky appearance.
I always look for a dressy pair of jeans when I shop. Pairing a blazer with a dark, plain wash denim is a safer choice — stick to darker denim as it will look dressier than those with heavy wash jeans. Make sure that the fit of your jeans matches the fit of your blazer. Also, wear a casual but versatile shoes to finish the outfit.
