Have you ever heard the word blazer and immediately thought “ugh work clothes” or pictured a boring black suit jacket?? It’s okay, happens to all of us! Whether you work a 9-5 or never step foot in an office, a blazer is for you! It has the power to dress up the most basic of t-shirts or add a fun pop to a little black dress. As we dive into spring, light layers and pretty colors are making their way back to the front of our closets and this gorgeous piece covers both of those necessities!
When it comes to styling a colorful outerwear piece, my personal fave is paired with a white tee! Seems basic yes, but switch out the bottoms and this look can take me pretty much anywhere! It’s the perfect foundation to build on, and who doesn’t love wearing a comfy tee while looking fabulous?! For a more relaxed vibe, pair with cognac leather accents. It will take your look in a light preppy direction. If you want to dress it up a bit, head for darker hues like black and navy. These colors will anchor your look and help transition it from day to night.
We often get questions about how to create a cohesive wardrobe that works for both the week and the weekend. It’s versatile layering pieces, like this blazer, that will help eliminate the need for separate work and play wardrobes. Before you get rid of that dress you’ve worn a million times, but still fits perfectly, try it with a fresh pop of color. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised!

Not only is this red blazer adorable, but it is also functional! I treat my blazers as a prettier denim jacket. Once it gets warm outside, it seems like every store and restaurant is suddenly freezing and I’m in need of an extra layer at all times! Next time you’re running out the door, try reaching for a pop of color instead of the trusty denim jacket!
