Blazers are my go-to outerwear choice pretty much all year round. I own more blazers than any other type of outerwear (did I mention that before?). Printed, cropped, long… I want ‘em all, in every color! Whether going shopping or to a meeting with clients, blazers are among the most reliable toppers in my wardrobe.
I like how model Barbara Palvin (left) threw on her semi-long blazer over a tee & mini skirt. You see how the blazer ties the whole outfit together? Strappy booties look amazing with it while the scrunched up sleeves are certainly more relaxed.
I’m sure most of you own a black blazer or two as they are classic and super versatile. Blazers in lighter hues like taupe, cream, khaki, white are fantastic in spring/summer. I’m loving this silky blazer that exudes a summery vibe. A lightweight blazer like this one is perfect on chilly summer nights with denim shorts or a maxi. Swoon!
Avoid an overly boxy shape that can make you look a bit on the dorky side. It’s all about the fit when it comes to finding that perfect blazer. You don’t need to break the bank to get a hold of a fab jacket (most of mine are under $100). Both Nasty Gal and Forever 21 have fashionable yet affordable selections of blazers in various styles. But if I had the means to splurge, there is no better choice to me than this airy, cool Rag & Bone blazer!
