Blaze a trail in a black blazer dress
Last year Kim Kardashian wore an Alexander Wang Black Blazer Dress and the world took note . The affordable fashion brands then offered their interpretations to appease those of us that can’t afford Alexander Wang yet!

Jlo had worn a white tuxedo dress earlier last year to the Giuseppe Zanotti capsule shoe launch and looked hawt but the black is more popular .

I ended up with my blazer dress for a more practical reason WORK! I normally don’t blog about my work clothes but I got asked about it so often that I decided to share 😊😊
My dress was a bargain at £8.64 from the Bubble Kiss store on AliExpress but it has subsequently gone up to £13.24 which is a lot more affordable than Alexander Wang.
My black blazer dress
This dress is smart, practical and sexy. The fabric is good quality , I bought the small which is the equivalent of UK 8-10 but I was able to fit a dress and a shirt underneath it because it’s very stretchy.
The dress was delivered to England within 3 weeks of my order and looks exactly like the pictures on AliExpress.
Wonderful quality for the price the link is below :
So each time that I wear this dress I join the ranks of Rihanna, Beyonce, JLaw and Bella Hadid who have all worn blazer dresses or jackets as dresses.
This entire outfit is super affordable as my shoes were from Primark and cost £10.00 last summer.
So despite being hard at work I felt super glam because it accentuates curves without causing discomfort.
I decided to wear some old heart shaped earrings because it’s valentines day next week, unfortunately they’re no longer on sale kind of like my heart !! 😍😍💖💖❤💔💗💋
Affordable celebrity looks
If you want to try an alternative black blazer dress that is more similar to Kim K’s Pretty Little Thing is currently selling a range, my favourites are pictured below and are £30 and £40 respectively.

Even though Missguided, Miss Pap and Zara are selling similar blazer dresses, I prefer the AliExpress and Pretty Little Thing versions because they’re sassy but sophisticated.
Plus you can obtain a celebrity look on a budget and even if you do overspend, console yourself with the thought that it’s cheaper than the Alexander Wang version.
5 tips on how to find celeb inspired looks on AliExpress
- Type your celebrity’s name into the AliExpress search bar
- Upload an image of the item you’re searching for and the app will find the best match
- Type in the colour and scroll through
- Use a specific keyword ie thigh split
- Type celebrity inspired into the search bar
If you’re into the trends but want variety I recommend sites like AliExpress, Pretty Little Thing, Nasty Gal and Missguided because they’re up to date and the quality is very good.
My dress was a take on the trend without being a direct imitation but ultimately I chose it because it was flattering and will suit a number of body shapes.
The dress is also available in several sizes including XXXL. The colour makes it versatile, but a blazer dress will never be boring or bland.
As I was wearing mine to work I had to wear plain accessories but you can wear sexy strappy sandals, bright coloured heels or ankle boots.
If you buy the shorter versions you can wear over the knee boots and look as hot as Jlo.
My black blazer dress would also look good with a red, gold or silver belt.
Wear your hair down or up I chose my signature ponytail for ease mostly but it looked smart and sleek.
Most celebs opted for minimal makeup looks as did I mainly because I had to leave the house early. However the black blazer dress allows you to vamp it up if you choose because it’s fairly neutral.
Most handbags will look nice because the dress is neutral although I’d wear a large brightly coloured clutch bag.
I am really happy with this dress and would recommend it to those of you who want to look smart but remain a bit quirky and sexy.
People of any age would feel comfortable because it’s comfortable and not too revealing so you’re unlikely to suffer from any wardrobe malfunctions. The zip at the front of the blazer dress is sturdy and the thick material means that your underwear won’t be visible.
So channel you’re inner diva or make your daywear the thing of dreams whilst doing your day job.
Black suits most people so it will look good on you too.
Lastly I forgot to say this dress is very warm, so good for the current climate in England, the long sleeves are practical and one of the main reasons that I bought this blazer dress.
The faux leather collar is also warm but adds more style to the dress and is excellent value for money.
If you like it buy it because it’s definitely worth it.
If you follow the AliExpress link you’ll probably see my review in the comments although this blog is much more extensive.
I might start doing more work related blogs because I do enjoy looking neat at work although I’ll admit I still like bodycon designs, which is why I found this dress to be perfect.
I’ve included a video of Jlo killing it in her white blazer dress to inspire you.
Just remember work attire does not have to be basic, unattractive, unappealing or extremely expensive, it can be the total opposite.
Just remember the black blazer dress 😚
