Some Business Thoughts:
*** If belt bags are a thing (I can’t bring myself to call these fanny packs, and today’s belt bags are ever so chic!), why shouldn’t we use them as belts? Clearly the point is to have them around your waist (or thereabouts. Side benefit? You get your hands free to do all the things!) So, why not use the belt part of your bag to keep pants up or keep your blazer (or top) closed?
I tried it. And I loved it. It was like pockets with added purpose. I don’t think that’s a thing, but we can make it one??
**** I can’t quit a blazer with nothing on underneath. There was this Heather Locklear show a few years back where her character wore looks like that, and I just loved them. It’s boss lady means super feminine. Appropriate for office wear? Maybe not. Or at least make sure your blazer buttons high enough (yes, Mom, if this one weren’t leather I would have used a pin here. I can’t bring myself to pin leather. You do you). But for a night out, or one those days where you can risk a bit more? A blazer as a top is perfect. And yes! It’s a great look for more black tie looks as well (there’s also something I love about women in tailored tuxes, but that’s another post).
(Super side note: no matter what your business, a great blazer is a must. They can lend structure and class to any outfit, and are often the perfect outer wear. This is an item I think you should buy at the highest quality level you can, and don’t forget that your local tailor can work wonders!)
*** Other Thoughts: I’ve found a lucky someone these exact shoes for $78 (linked below), I love them. A pleated skirt is always a good idea. But blazers and belt bags as belts: we may be onto something!
