Happy Friday babes! It is my pleasure to pass the keyboard & step behind the camera for today’s blog post. Hannah will be serving us her 3 tips ti rocking a blazer this spring. Enjoy! XOXO, Gigi
Hello lovelies! I hope you are enjoying the little tease of spring weather lately and definitely praying that it stays.
Today I am bringing to you the wonderful trend of wearing blazers as so much more than an interview staple piece. Blazers have been on the rise in recent fashion news and they have definitely taken over the business causal aspect of fashion. As of late, blazers have been such a stylish and fun piece to wear. So, I will be going over some tips on how to pick and style the perfect blazer.
1. When picking the perfect blazer for a casual every day piece, opt for a fun color.
Choosing a pastel, such as this yellow one, will really add a pop to the look. Adding some fun, fresh spring colors can really enhance the style of this outfit and bring such a fun feel. Choosing a bright color instead of the basic black, navy or gray color will really help distinguish the look between fashion and business. Picking a subtle pastel color really brings a soft feeling to the look and pairing it with another pink pastel, such as my bag, could also be the perfect outfit for Easter, which is right around the corner. You can never have too many beautiful pastels! Especially with this time of year, it is a good reminder that beautiful weather is approaching.
2. Go out of your comfort zone and stray away from a regular fit, choose over-sized to add dimension.
Now, I am the first to say that I used to be the girl who would never in a million years want a clothing piece that was over-sized; mostly because I thought that over-sized clothing was never flattering on my personal figure. However, once I realized that over-sized clothing can be great for layering and styling, I quickly told myself that rocking an over-sized piece can bring such a different feel to a look, if styled correctly. The typical blazer is usually the perfect fit and true to the size of your body, but this time I challenge you to buy one a couple sizes up! The over-sized look can really give such a chic and cool vibe to your outfit by adding some dimension to your look.
3. Pair your blazer with basics.
There is nothing better than a t-shirt and pair of jeans. My new favorite way to style a blazer is by wearing just that! I paired my look with a white t-shirt, medium wash jeans with some distressing in the knee and some classic white low top converse. To add some bling, gold is my favorite at the moment, so I paired my look with layer gold necklaces and some of my favorite dainty rings. You can style your blazer however your beautiful heart desires, but pairing with such casual pieces can definitely add to the simplicity. This is a perfect way to spice up a regular outfit for a brunch with the girls or really any occasion you can think of, it’s all about how you style this piece!
With all of this being said, I hope I inspired you to add some colorful, over-sized blazers to your Spring wardrobe. There are so many ways to wear blazers, this way just happens to be my favorite one. It is so important to dress the way you feel most comfortable, that is what we should all encourage each other to do the most. However, now that blazer’s are being worn as a cool staple; it is fun to realize that blazer’s do not always have to be for “adulting," they can be for style and fun too!
Until next time,
