This capsule was inspired by quality pieces on the 2023 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Today some are still in stock. My high-low mix has pieces available in XXS through plus size. The best thing about this minimalistic work wardrobe is that it’s super easy to recreate anytime and add your own personal style.

BLAZER OUTFIT #1 | LEATHER OR VEGAN LEATHER PANTS

Thinking forward to fall I suggest a blazer outfit with a cool pair of leather pants. These high-rise wide-crop crop pants from Good American have a generous fit. I’m wearing my regular size (25) in the photo above but sized down in the picture below. I love that they are available in sizes 00-26 Plus.

Black Pants

These from BLANKNYC fit similarly to the Good American style. There are some contemporary styles that are more fitted and taper or are tight around the ankle. I wear my long blazer with Spanx leggings when I travel for work. Score some Spanx faux leather leggings in petite or plus sizes too.

I’m wearing the French Connection style in this Instagram video.

Splurge & Save

These beautiful quality VINCE pants are an item I’ve recommended for years and are part of my New Wardrobe Checklist. They are so flattering on and there are so many ways to style them all year. Nordstrom has these 4 styles, including a vegan option.

Here’s a mirror selfie I took wearing an xs in the suede style. I’m 5’4″ so you can see how high the 9″ rise and 26.5″ inseam are on me.

BLAZER OUTFIT #2 | A SKIRT

VINCE makes the best slip skirt. Its casual-dressy crinkle satin is washable and cut on the bias for a super-flattering fit. Amazon had a size-inclusive nice look for less.

Pleated Skirt Picks

This faux leather pleated skirt on sale is so cool. You can wear it with your blazer, a camisole top, and slingbacks, or style it this winter with a turtleneck and boots.

BLAZER OUTFIT #3 | BLACK DRESS

This is such a timeless combination. Style tip- Avoid awkward proportions when you wear a “long” blazer over a dress by wearing it unbuttoned or belted.

NSale Favorites For a Blazer

CHECK BLAZER ROUNDUP

All of these blazers have some black in them making them so easy to style. Click on them to see the colors in each check pattern better. I included my best-selling solid blazer in my most recent Classic Fashion Capsule. A check blazer is one of the key pieces in my 2023 First Look at Fall Capsule. Read THIS POST to find the best blazer for your body type.

BEST TOPS FOR BLAZER OUTFITS

There are always plenty of black tops to pick from. These styles work well with skirts or pants.

SHOES FOR YOUR BLAZER OUTFITS

Dress to impress including your shoes! Wearing worn or dated shoes with a work outfit is one of the biggest mistakes professional women make. Score these styles when they’re on sale.
