Aussie transplant Charlotte Bridgeman is one of those people who can make a solid sweater, jeans, and a blazer feel like the most stylish look in the world. And it is, in a way. Her closet is full of classic pieces with subtle, modern twists that give it the “wow” factor that keeps her 200,000 followers engaged. Below is her weekly style diary, documenting how she dressed over the course of a few days — in some of Bloomingdale’s best fall buys.
I’m lucky that, working in fashion, I can get away with wearing pretty casual pieces to meetings, so my everyday breakfast-meeting outfit would be jeans paired with a blazer, and either a loafer or a heel. I love that this bright blue sweater is casual, but is easily dressed up with pants that are more on the more formal side. The snakeskin boots add some on-trend pattern to the look.
I’m always on the go. Whether I’m working on a photo shoot, a partnership, or attending Fashion Week events, I honestly think jeans with a blazer can take you to almost any situation. It’s the perfect combo for running to meetings, a packed workday, or meeting up for drinks. I love that this blazer really elevates a jeans-and-sweater look and fits perfectly.
Special After-Work Event
My style is pretty classic with a modern twist, but I do like to dress up when the time is right. A regular “work” outfit can easily be changed to a “going out” look by simply adding a higher heel and a bold lip, and by re-styling a few pieces. I’d go with more of a risqué, bold look by ditching the pants that match this blazer/dress and wearing it solo. Suit by day, mini dress by night.
