STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Back to Basics — In Color

One of the staple pieces that every girl should have in her wardrobe is a well-fitted blazer. However, when most people think of this particular staple piece, they think of a genereric-looking black blazer that is oh-so-crisp. Fashion is about stepping outside of the box though. So, when I saw this Fashionista prancing down the streets near campus wearing this blazer in a blush/camel hue, I was immediately drawn to her. As I further studied her outfit, I fell even more in love with the back of her unique blazer, which features a silk panel and a delicate tie unlike any I've ever seen before.

Blazers are considered to be an essential item in every girl's closet because of their amazing versatility. Whether paired with feminine silhouettes or jutting-edged attire, blazers always manage to fit the role of the perfect jacket. I love wearing my favorite snug blazer with billowing silk ensembles and chunky heels. However, I also enjoy it with a basic blouse, brightly colored skinnies and simple stilettos. Basically, you can't go wrong with a blazer.

Aside from admiring this CollegeFashionista's use of her flirty blazer, I also adore the color combination she chose for her basic outfit. By pairing blush with poppy and peach, this Fashionista transformed her simple attire into a winning spring look. This rare blazer was found at H&M, but I also love this royal blue blazer from ASOS as well as this Zara blazer in the popular peach tone. With red flats, also from H&M, this Fashionista really played up the accents of her looks. Although the deals at H&M can't be beat, I love the street appeal of these studded red flats by Sam Edelman.

Finally, this Fashionista took her color scheme a step further by wearing matching earrings, from H&M, in poppy and peach. Several similar looks are still available at H&M, but I also love the lemon hue of these geometric earrings from ASOS. Whether you prefer to wear black or all the colors of the rainbow, pair a blazer with your outfit and you'll add instant polish to your already glam look.
