STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: The Blazer

Is it going too far to say that the blazer is the perfect article of clothing?  Add it to a pair of jeans, like this Fashionista, and it automatically takes an ensemble from a regular day look to casual chic. Add a pair of amazing heels and you have quickly transitioned into a nighttime look. Blazers also look amazing over short daytime dresses or even cocktail dresses. The possibilities really are endless.

When I saw this Fashionista, I fell in love with how she has styled her blazer. Her blazer may look like a very soft red, almost pink, from afar but up close you see that there is actually a very subtle navy blue check.  She paired her blazer with a blue polka dotted blouse, an unexpected twist that really pulled the whole outfit together. It’s easy to want to pair colors with neutrals such as black, white, or tan. As good as neutrals look with a pop of color, color on color often looks amazing. In this case, the understated color of her blazer along with the navy check, allowed her to wear a print underneath without it looking too costume-like. The boots are casual and comfortable, an excellent and more stylish alternative to tennis shoes.

Blazers can be found everywhere, which is great for Fashionista/os on a budget. Urban Outfitters has a huge selection of colors and styles — perfect for every Fashionista/o. Target and Forever 21 also have some good, slightly less expensive options.
