You guys know we love a good blazer. We talk about blazers a lot because they are one of the most versatile pieces you can have in your closet! Of course, we know we can wear blazers in a professional setting. But, there are so many other ways to enjoy your blazers… Let’s talk about how to wear a blazer in the spring season!
How To Wear A Blazer For Spring
A blazer is most certainly a sharp look in a professional setting – think blazer and pencil skirt or slacks. You get the drift. But there are so many other ways to wear a blazer! A blazer is a great piece with which to elevate your jeans, shorts, and even your sneakers. That is what we are focusing on today – some more “out of the box” ideas on how to pair your blazer with some unexpected pieces in your closet. We utilized that fabulous royal blue blazer (very hot color for spring by the way) from our Spring Capsule Wardrobe to showcase some fun ideas on how to wear a blazer for spring.
Ladies, there is no reason you can’t wear your blazer with sneakers. Here, Sara Elizabeth is wearing a blazer with denim shorts and some fun sneakers. You can also of course do jeans and sneakers for a very similar look on a chillier day. We love the idea of pairing a tailored blazer with casual pieces like sneakers and denim for a really fun and unexpected look for meeting your girlfriends for lunch in between your errands on a sunny spring day.
How to Wear With Shorts
You can utilize your blazer to elevate a dressier shorts look as well – it is also a great layering piece for these spring days that start off rather cool and heat up in the afternoons. For this look, Sara Elizabeth threw the blazer on over a pair of printed shorts and silk tank top and added some flat sandals. You could instead do a sandal with a reasonable height heel with this look as well! A sidenote on color… We are loving the bright and happy colors that this spring’s lines contain. Don’t be afraid to mix two bold colors like we have done here!
How to Wear With Flats
Love love love this dressy casual look that Katie is wearing. Again, the tailored blazer and sophisticated blouse is offset by a ripped pair of jeans, with a classic pair of shoes to top it off. And we love the bright floral pattern under the blazer – such a beautiful statement for spring! Notice how Katie has the blazer around her shoulders – another really fun way to use a blazer as a layering piece on these spring days with big swings in temps!
How To Wear A Blazer With Distressed Jeans
Here is another look with distressed jeans – this time white denim and heeled sandals. Love this look for a fun evening out with girlfriends or your honey. Another note on color here…. Notice that the patterned blouse that Katie is wearing doesn’t contain the actual shade of blue of the blazer, yet so perfectly complements it. It is OK to mix shades of colors with the pieces in your look, especially when pattern is involved – the hues don’t always have to match perfectly to work!
How To Wear A Blazer Over A Matching Set
Lastly, let’s talk about the matching set. This has been a huge trend for about a year now and doesn’t seem to be leaving us anytime soon. Katie is wearing the blazer over a matching tank and wide leg pant set. It is amazing how adding this blazer changes the entire vibe of the set!
