Curvissa and the Perfect White blazer

There are certain items that every capsule wardrobe should include. A little black dress,  a classic black handbag, a crisp white shirt, all these are items that you will wear time and time again. To this list, I would also add a single breasted white blazer. This is something that looks brilliant with so many things including denim, over a shift dress and teamed with a tea dress. There are literally so many combinations that the white blazer can be worn with, it becomes an essential part of the all-year round wardrobe.

When I was asked if I would be interested in reviewing something from the Curvissa Spring/Summer collection, I immediately plumped for a classic white blazer. The Satin blazer is a classic style. Single buttoned, with a decorative two buttoned detail on the black, this jacket is a semi-fitted stretched style that is ultra smart and stylish. It is also fully lined and features two front pockets. I loved this jacket from the images on the site, although I was slightly worried by the description of ‘satin’ – would this jacket be a little bit Saturday Night fever?

I need not have worried. The jacket (made by the label Sheego) is more of a crisp cotton rather than a high shined satin, making it perfect to wear for day or night wear. It has a single button, which I really liked due to its tortoiseshell sheen, giving it a designer feel. I liked the length, and the sleeve length was also perfect, but I do feel that although this was comfortable, it may pay to go up a size if you have a large bust.

How did I style it?

I think this jacket is super versatile, and the quality is great. I know this is going to have a long and happy life in my wardrobe, and will be getting lots of outings during the coming months.

With thanks to Curvissa for the jacket which I was gifted for review.

 

 

Fashion Friday on MummysGotStyle.com

Friday shopping focus – Monsoon new in.

Monsoon can always be relied upon to produce something a little bit folky, a little bit boho and something eminently wearable, whatever the season. With many of the Christmas sales now well and truly over, or frankly not worth looking at, it is lovely to see some pretty prints, bright colours and great separates in store now.

Spring may still be a long way away, but the crisp, clean lines of the Theodora Jacket, and that zesty pop of the Edith cardigan show a way to brighten your wardrobe, if not the actual weather.

Let me know what you think of these stunning styles.
