What’s Chic Now: Blazers
The official start of Spring is only a month away and like you we are already dreaming of all of the fabulous fashion that will be sure to make a statement. So what is a fashion girl supposed to do in this transitional period? We say jump onto the blazer bandwagon now and wear well into the coming months…instant chic, instant style refresh.
Whether suiting up, chilling out or dancing the night away, the blazer is one of the most versatile pieces in your closet, so don’t be afraid to experiment with it…mixing and matching has never been so much fun.
Start with Spring’s newest neutral, purple…yes purple. This new black will become the backbone to all of your #OOTDs. We love pairing a tailored, peak lapel, plum-hued jacket with all of our winter-to-spring whites. The contrast allows the pieces to pop, exposing an innate fashion-confidence. Graphic and sophisticated, modern and romantic, desk-to-dinner-approved.
We always adore the juxtaposition of the masculine and feminine and nothing allows for this power combo more than a blazer. Layer your favorite suit-like jackets over a flowing silk dress for a day or night moment. For the office, choose pared down styles, in traditional neutral tones for an update to your wintery suits. For night, go glam with a dramatic tuxedo jacket over your evening finest…even James Bond would be enchanted! Of course, all you fashion chameleons should just wear these pieces whenever you desire…morning, noon, midnight, no rules!
Construct your own version of the suit. Power-dressing doesn’t have to conform to norms. The days of matchy-matchy are so last year. Start with a base like the perfect pair of pants…high-waist, slightly flared, not too classic, and then create the magic with your blazer. We are coveting high-shine, metallics that have that just-right cold weather to warm weather vibe. Again go with some contrast and accessorize with simple accents that allow you to take this outfit from office-to-office party in a fashion flash.
If the occasion is special, then choose something frilly and then edge it up with a tuxedo-inspired blazer. If you watched the Academy Awards, then you know pink is in, so select pieces that have just a touch to show you are style-savvy. Be unexpected…just the right amount of bespoke elegance, with a twist that will make you the life of the party. Memorable, yet understated, simple yet striking, fashion-history in the making!
