Originally, the blazer was only seen within the confines of the corporate office, and for the working girl, it meant stuffy shoulder pads and unflattering dress slacks. But now, like so many other key pieces—pants, vests and even fedoras—the blazer has become a stylish staple.
But an even hotter trend this season? The summer blazer. It’s a lighter, less constructed version of the classic. They come in a variety of colors, prints and cuts, which makes them versatile and easy to pair with almost anything!
There’s something about a blazer that can take an outfit from average to outstanding. And nothing makes a look more eye-catching than adding some color to it. Match a bold blazer with a simple striped bodycon dress. Or, sport a blazer with animal print for some added spice.
Many of these summer blazers are not designed to close or even button, helping to create a great look without the restricted feeling of your typical blazer. They look perfect with a flowy tank and cuffed shorts. To find the right blazer to complete this look, make sure that its hemline hits close to your hip bones.
Another bonus: they easily transition from summer to fall. Because summer blazers are typically made of cotton and other lighter-weight materials, it’s easy to wear them in the warm summer months over dresses, shorts and skirts, and over heavier clothes as the weather gets cooler.
