I wear petite sizes, and I try to buy clothes small enough so that I don’t have to pay extra to have them altered. But when I found this sleeveless blazer at Marshall’s that was a little too big under the arms and through the waist, I bought it anyway, because I could tell the cost of alteration would be worth it.

That’s because this sleeveless blazer is such a versatile piece for the office, and can be layered over different tops, from the cotton long-sleeved tee modeled here, to a turtleneck sweater for colder weather, to a short-sleeved blouse for warmer weather. I think it looks great with pencil skirts, like this patterned pencil skirt by Nicole Miller, don’t you?

To dress up the long-sleeved tee and make this outfit look more polished, I added a thrifted silk black and white polka dot scarf and a collar necklace from Target.

I’ve found the collar necklace to be a really fun and feminine piece to wear with collared shirts and blouses too.
