Workchic: Wrap Blazer Dress 

The wrap dress trend has been taking over for sometime now and in July, I copped this beautiful pink and black blazer wrap dress with frill bottom at a closet sale. When I spotted it, I was watching the last season of How To Get Away With Murder at the time and I immediately imagined Michaela in it. So I’m channeling my inner Michaela lol. It’s far from my style but I also know it’s good to try something new and step out of our comfort zone often.

For some reason though, I never wore it since then because I felt like it was too much for just work (It’s like a birthday work dress or an important work thing work dress). Anyway, I wore it recently and thought to make a style post out of it since I hadn’t done a workchic look in a while.

Did you know that blazer dresses were a thing in the 80s??? The style of the 80s have been gradually creeping their way back and I think this look is one that will be around for a little while. A blazer dress is mostly office appropriate but can also be dressed up for an after work date or dressed with sneakers or flats for a casual look. There are different types of blazer dresses and I may just cop another with buttons very soon. Below are a few I like;

I had a vision for the kind of photos I wanted to use to present the dress and they came to live beautifully. All thanks to my sister who was kind enough to be my photographer for the day. 

Do you own a wrap dress?

Thanks for reading.
