Blazer: Black Boyfriend Blazer
More and more millennials are becoming their own boss. I love seeing my generation as entrepreneurs and business owners, because it shows the world that we are independent. I knew at the age of four that I was going to be my own boss. Spending my summers in Jamaica with my grandmother, I used to take fabric from her clothing factory and create faux food for my pretend restaurant. It might have seemed funny and cute to many individuals, but I took my restaurant very seriously. My grandmother and grandfather were my first customers. During lunch time they would come into my restaurant (aka their dining room) and eat lunch. They played along and gave critiques on how I could change my menu, change the taste of the food, and enhance my table setting. My grandparents pushed me to be a better business owner, even if it was entirely about using your imagination.
Now that I am older and self-branding myself as my business, I must look the part. I know when I feel good, I look good, but I also know, when I look good, I feel good. Both go hand in hand, but it’s so important that you dress the part. My mother always told me that when you meet someone new, like a future boss, love interest, or just a general new person, they have three seconds to make create their perspective based on clothing, conversation, and body language. When I get dressed, I try to dress my best because I never know who I am going to meet and dressing well makes me feel good.
For a man and a woman, you can never go wrong with a black or dark colored blazer. A blazer is classic and adds a sense of sophistication to an outfit. A blazer can be paired with a dark or light washed jean, or a great pair of trousers. The structure of a blazer is what makes the outfit. The defined shoulders and fit accentuates body shape. A blazer is an essential in anyones closet. It’s a statement piece that can be dressed up or dressed down. I know when I am wearing my blazer, I feel confident, and confidence is the sexiest accessory.
