♫ 김현중 (Kim Hyun Joong) - Unbreakable (ft. Jay Park)
I don't often do fashion posts, mainly because I'm the type of person who doesn't really follow the latest trends in clothing styles (galaxy print? Pffft~), preferring to go with what feels comfortable and looks good. Besides, I have a mortal fear of heat, which means that I pretty much live in shorts all year round due to Malaysia's tropical weather.

1. Black is basic. Always.You can never go wrong with a basic black number. If you plan on getting just ONE blazer (for now, that is :P), I'd highly suggest getting a black one with contrasting colours or pinstripes on the inside of the sleeves. That way it'll look a lot more casual when you roll up the sleeves.

2. Keep the material of the blazer light and summery......and don't be afraid to experiment with lots of colour and printed tops, crop tops, bralets, lace, etc.

3. Play with patterns and textureIf you feel that the rest of your outfit looks kinda boring, plain or just too casual, spice it up a bit with a patterned blazer! Stripes, polka dots, baroque, floral, animal print, leather... The possibilities are endless!

Last but not least...
4. The Military Jacket (my personal favourite)Honestly, military jackets are the coolest thing ever. (Okay, maybe not the 'coolest' thing you'll wear in Malaysia, but you get my drift.) Best paired with a kickass pair of boots. :P

Your own personal style is definitely up to yourself to define. It might take some time to get used to wearing a certain style, but if you experiment a little and push the boundaries of your (fashion) comfort zone, you might be surprised at what it can do for you! (✿◠‿◠)
I'm dying to get myself a really nice piped blazer (preppy style, kinda like the Warblers uniforms from Glee) for my next purchase. Guess I'll have to put it in my wishlist while I look around for a nice one that doesn't break the bank. XD
