Have you added a blazer to your wardrobe? This classic piece can be a bit stiff and stuffy. I’ve got some simple style solutions. Rather than 80s preppy, we’ve got a few tips to work a blazer into your closet seamlessly for a clean modern look.
Choose a soft silhouette: We opted for a knit version from Rag & Bone. The fabric is relaxed and is a dream for travel. We paired it with a white shirt for a classic look. Normally in spring I would have worn flats with this, but it was in the 50s and I needed to keep my toes a little bit warmer, so I opted for a black boot. This blazer is cut close to the body, which is flattering on most women.
Tailoring matters: Never wear a blazer that is too tight. If anything, opt for slightly oversized to give it a boyfriend feel. Too tight will add on the pounds to your frame.
Add color: Our pick has a orange trim, but if you want even more color, try a pop of bright color like this look on Jessica Alba. Pink blazers are all over the editorial pages right now. We also love the look of a bright yellow blazer. If you are going for a bright blazer, wear dark denim, black or white on the bottom.
Choose quirky accessories: Don’t play it safe with your necklace. Add a bold statement piece like the orange one we found from LOFT: Collection Long Coral Stone Cluster, Gem and Wood Bead Necklace ($69.50). Another option is a bold, colorful ballet slipper or pump.
There you have it, easy style tips for you to don your blazer with confidence and style this spring. Now I can’t wait to see what you’re wearing this week.
