Sequin Blazer: Republic // Playsuit: New Look
Bag: eBay // Boots: Primark // Tights: New Look

I've had this blazer for a couple of years now, and it's still one of my favourite statement pieces in my wardrobe. I always bring it back out at this time of year, because things like this really never go out of style. 

It can really dress an outfit up, which I have demonstrated here. Worn with a plain black playsuit, with tights and chunky boots, the blazer adds a little bit of glitz and glam to an outfit which without it, would be very plain and boring. I love the contrast of the gold sequins against the plain black outfit, it makes a great daytime dressy look. 
For a night out, the blazer works well with any dress, heels and clutch really... I love it teamed with bright bold colours or again, just black... a simple LBD with black wedges and a studded clutch are my top choices to team up with it.

Now that Christmas and party season are on their way, these sorts of pieces are popping up in the shops  allover again... I've seen a lovely one in Primark and some new styles in Republic (here and here).
