#InspiredByInStyle: How Reader of the Week Linda Venezia Adds Structure to a Flowy Skirt
In this regular series, we demonstrate how our most intrepid readers sport the trends in our magazine. Look for it on What's Right Now every week, and be sure to try out a look or two yourself and tweet us a photo @InStyle using #inspiredbyinstyle. Today, we’re featuring Reader of the Week and Runway Inspired blogger Linda Venezia.
For days when you can't decide if you want to go ultra feminine or structured masculine, a long blazer and midi skirt mix is a good go-to. That's why we featured the look in "Fashion Formula: Long Blazer + Pleated Midiskirt" in our April issue. This uniform brings together the best of both worlds and Reader of the Week Linda Venezia pulled it off stunningly, adding a strong blue jacket over super girly staples like a pleated midi and a lacy camisole. Statement earrings and a matching clutch pull it together without overpowering the chic shape.
