Denim on Denim + Office Staples

What makes this outfit look city chic? A tailored blazer and classic pumps in the ultimate city chic color.

*Will this outfit work on your body type? All my outfits emphasize flattering an apple shape -wider shoulders/narrow hips. In this picture I am 5’1″ and starting to show my baby bump. I am petite and also have a high waist and short torso.

Denim on denim goes city chic

I love the denim on denim trend. I think it’s because it feels like I’m breaking rules, and I love breaking rules. Usually when I see the denim on denim look it’s with light chambray on top and dark denim on bottom. This is the opposite of what I want on my apple shape. I would rather do dark on top and light on bottom. To offset this, and to elongate my upper half instead of widen it, I paired my light chambray with a fitted black linen blazer. I shortened my legs to balance out my upper half by cuffing my skinny jeans. I added heels to match my office appropriate fitted blazer, but finished off the look with a felt hat to keep it looking casual.
