I did not want to launch this fashion blog with two blazers in the fashion recommendations category, but this Alexander McQueen peplum blazer is so hot that I had to. The creative director came through when he designed this. I am in love with this contrast design. I’m only presenting the blazer, but there are matching pants, making this a chic power suit. And yes, this blazer is very expensive, but all of us Luxe Ladies are working towards our riches, so we are just looking to see what’s next for us in the fashion sense. You should look at these luxury items as inspiration and motivation for what’s to come in your life.
The Herringbone pattern goes back to the Roman Empire and is still used throughout the fashion world today. And the peplum silhouette became popular in the 1940s, and I’m so glad it did. Peplum works wonders for the women that feel they weren’t ‘blessed’ in the hip area…like myself. This blazer has a tailored fit with a peaked lapel and a herringbone hem. It fits nicely at the waist with its one-button closure, and then the pleats and peplum allows for flattering fit around the hips.

How I’d Wear It: Now I have a fair share of designer items, but I in no way, shape, or form, can afford to pay $3,590 for a blazer. So naturally, this is how I would imagine that I would wear this Alexander Herringbone Peplum Pleated Blazer. Of course, I would wear the power suit, but let me proceed as if I didn’t have the matching pants. More than likely, I would dress this blazer down and wear it during a night out amongst friends. I would pair the blazer with a black top – more than likely a turtleneck – and some form-fitting black pants. I would also have on a pair of black boots and a designer purse.
As always, thanks for reading, and be sure to share, like, and comment on this post! Let me know how you’d wear this blazer, or if you own it!
