I’ve been finding chambray blazers all over the place, and cute as they are (and un-modern as it is for me to admit this) I look at them and all I see are 70s flashbacks. Thoughts?
Yes. I also see the 1970s. 1977 in particular when my mom made me buy such a blazer in Annie Sez even though I hated the whole idea. I ended up covering the lapels with my collection of band buttons & got grounded when she read Stiff Records’ ” If it Ain’t Stiff It Ain’t Worth a Fuck” button.
I still get very excited when I see velvet blazers. I had one in 8th grade (’81?) and it was my personal fashion apex (in my mind).
ah, the stiff button, nice flashback. I think this blazer is totally fab and would probably wear it with a calico blouse and a pencil skirt in dark polished denim. And a “get over yourself” button on the lapel. SO yes, bring it on.
This one has a good shape. Like it with the striped shirt, the pants not so much, maybe white jeans and converse kicks.
All I can think of when I see that blazer is the commercial for that perfume “Charlie” …and the song is playing in my head… (All I can say is Wow! Charlie!) I looked it up and the fragrance was released in ’73 so that says it all for me.
mmmm, not my favorite. i think it ventures a little too far into the geriatric territory, bless my grandmas’ hearts…
No appeal at all, even styled for the photos……just looks like JC Penny from the 70s.
Too dowdy — even if I did my best styling I don’t think I could pull this off without looking dated. Why wear this when you can wear that Liberty print jacket you featured last week?
I agree, too!
I absolutely would, though I don’t remember the seventies (age, not drugs). I love a blazer in a casual fabric for adding some structure to an outfit without looking too formal.
I love the whole outfit – especially the pants.
No upper body denim. Ever.
I like the pants too – where did they come from?
I don’t like the way that one is cut. I could imagine a cute jacket made out of denim though. I don’t think the fabric is the issue. Also, that’s a light wash.
NO! It says Johnny Appleseed catalog ca. 1977 all over it.
