Spring Must Have: Blazer


Blazer is one of the most versatile items ever! Some of them, for example in nude or black, can be worn with pants or a pencil skirt for work, with denim or shorts for casual outfits and even with an elegant dress for a night out. The best part is that you actually don't have to buy a new blazer, you can borrow it from your mother's, sister's or even boyfriend's closet. Exactly! It's not necessary that it fits you perfectly, unlike other items of wardrobe it's allowed to wear one size or even two sizes bigger blazer for any occasion.





They can come in a variety of styles, cuts, colors and patterns. The short, classic ones are easy to mix and match, and when it comes to colors, the choice is yours only! We like them most in black, white and nude because they can be included in almost every single outfit without much effort. Pair your blazer with shorts and flats for a casual chic or with super high heel stilettos and a skirt for a party. There is a lot of possibilities.





For work, pick a simple design. You are still allowed to play with different prints, look at the picture of Leighton Meester below, she's pulling off a printed blazer perfectly. Wear it with high waist trousers and a simplified blouse or with a pencil dress/skirt. Add a personal touch to your look with some accessories: big cat-eye sunglasses, studded belt or a jewel embellished necklace can pretty much spice up your outfit.




sequined blazer can look great but don't 'overdo' the outfit. You already know that the rest of your ensemble should be simplified. A sequined item is the star of your look, so in that case forget about big jewelry, prints, studs, spikes etc.



If you're a fan of pink color, we have a surprise for you: your favorite color is currently n0.1 when it comes to blazers! There is a million ways how to wear your pink blazer, but it seems like white and beige are the best colors to pair it with. Also, you can never go wrong with a pair of jeans, so if you hate experimenting, denim should always be your choice.







If you consider yourself a person with bold style, there are many different designs for a blazer that you might like. Try various prints, for example floral, animal print or stripes. Remember that horizontal stripes make you look visually thicker, vertical ones make you look thinner. Floral prints look great with bright colors, which is the right one depends, of course, on the rest of your outfit.





For casual everyday look, you can add some color to your usual look. Celebs such as Frankie Sandford and Beyonce apparently like being center of attention so they chose vibrant colored blazers. Frankie even made her version of color-blocking that looks so fresh and innovative.





For cocktail parties, choose soft colors, nothing too extravagant but still glamorous and elegant. The cut of the blazer should be simple, you certainly don't want to make a wrong impression. The cut of your skirt or dress should also stay in the safe zone, but you can accessorize the look with a clutch, cute necklace and a gold or silver watch.
