FASHION FROM ABROAD: A Twist On The Blazer

Blazers have always been one of my favorite pieces to add to my look. Especially after Gossip Girl’s Blake Lively made the blazer a fun and sexy addition to any ensemble. For example, she made a normally boring pant suit sophisticated and provocative by wearing this electric blue lace inset suit. Her twist on this normally casual outfit in an episode of Gossip Girl has me keeping my eye on unique blazer jackets to incorporate into my wardrobe.

I noticed this Fashionista the other day sporting a twist on a classic blazer too. Rather than a long sleeve or cropped sleeve blazer, this jacket had short sleeves. Tailored in a really flattering way, this blazer offers an innovative and fashion-forward twist on a very classic style. The tie around the jacket also cinches the waist to make the look clean-cut yet stylish. This Fashionista pairs the blazer with dark wash wide leg jeans and a sparkly tank underneath, making the style perfect for a day out.

If you are looking for some unique blazers to add to your style, take a look at this short sleeve neon pink blazer from ASOS. For a pop of color similar to Blake’s, Urban Outfitters offers an array of different colors in this ruched sleeved jacket. This Forever 21 blazer plays with fabrics and offers a lacy twist on a classic boyfriend blazer also. Pair the royal blue blazer with a black mini skirt and some wedges for a night out. The blazer is a staple in any girl’s closet and I highly recommend investing in a couple of blazers that will wow your audience.
