The Celebrity Summer Trend to try at Danbury Fashion Week

This chic outfit requires no shirt or pants.

It’s the countdown to Danbury Fashion Week this Friday and Saturday in Danbury, CT, and I’m lining up summer trends to try for two glamorous, fashion-forward nights out.

This season’s soirée style inspo is an outfit my parents would never have let me out of the house in. Which is exactly why I have to try it!

The blazer dress, sometimes known as a tuxedo dress, is risqué, but it’s incredibly easy, comfortable and trendy among celebs like Blake Lively, Gigi and Bella Hadid, and Rihanna. Not to mention Kylie Jenner has made this look a go-to.

If you have an evening party or event to attend this season, try this look instead of the usual maxi dress and espadrilles.

To achieve the look, shop an oversized blazer (Men’s or Women XL) and roll up the sleeves, like Riri did, or shop dress-length blazers. Pair with stilettos for maximum effect, or pair down with flat mules.

The effect of mixing a chunky business-like blazer with furry, sparkly party heels is fun and sexy, adding a little playfulness to your night-out style.
