A blazer/T-shirt combo (add jeans, black skinnies or even a skirt) is the easiest, throw-together outfit to wear … so easy that you might even consider it to be a daily uniform. This is where the iconic Veronica Beard Dickey jacket comes in. I know, everyone laughs at the idea of a dickey 😂 — but it’s clever! Designed to look layered without being bulky, interchangeable dickeys allow you to completely switch up your look, giving you lots of options. Check out the Veronica Beard website here, there’s loads of inspiration!
Veronica Beard is a brand I’m super proud to support. With all the talk in the fashion industry about diversity, inclusivity, and giving back, this is one company that excels at all three. Earlier this year, they extended their size ranges to include up to size 24, which is applaudable. And recently, they showed three generations of women wearing the SAME jacket in their #copycat campaign. Watch it here, it’s fantastic.

#1 Start with a jacket you love
Considered the most important piece of our wardrobes (in my book anyway!), invest in a Veronica Beard jacket. There are so many to love, including the original Scuba style. It’s available in three colors: winter white, black and navy, and in either the classic or moto style (see below). My top pick is the black classic — it goes perfectly with any dickey! Once you fall in love, and I’m certain you will, then you might consider adding a second blazer in a color or fabric you’d like. You’ll be able to wear it multiple ways! Here are a few we’re loving.
#2 Add a dickey of course!
This one stopped me in my tracks the other day (available in gray here). How cool to have a “sweater tied over your shoulders” look, without the bulk! Try this gray wool hoodie that’s a little more dressed up, but still casual. Check out more dickeys here and here.
#3 Make sure to have the right bottom
Any style of denim works, from your favorite skinnies to a slim straight to a make-your-legs-look-a-mile-long flare leg style.
#4 new shoes are always a good thing too …
#5 And while you’re at it, Veronica Beard designs the best dresses!
