SPRING STYLE – THE BLAZER

In my opinion a blazer is a staple item for most women’s wardrobes. They’re timeless, chic and so very versatile.

I have to admit, I don’t get to wear this little off-white number very often, which is probably why I chose to shoot it for this post. The lighter shade is perfect for warmer months but sadly not practical with two young children running around so I wear this for work or when I’m out for a ‘grown-up’ lunch/dinner (no sticky fingers in sight!)

Whichever colour palette you fall into, there is a shade of White to suit everyone. It may be a Soft White, Cream or Ivory. For my colouring, lighter shades need to be worn with something contrasting, hence the deep navy cami I’ve styled it with here.

As a Spring staple I style my blazers in all sorts of ways. The more structured silhouette looks great in contrast to the relaxed fit of boyfriend/girlfriend jeans and heels for a smart/casual look. I also love mine with skinnies (what a shocker!), skirts and over jumpsuits/dresses. Opting for one that has darting at the back (as this one does) will give your silhouette a lovely shape (and emphasise your waist).

A blazer in a darker, neutral tone (charcoal, navy etc.) will give it more of an outerwear feel, making it great as a substitute for a heavy coat on those days that have a chill in the air. Just add some accessories (scarf, statement necklace) or put lighter layers underneath (a tee and a soft denim shirt for example).

Also, with blazers in colours that are a more practical shade than white (!) I love to dress them down with jeans and trainers to give an everyday look at slightly more polished edge.

I’ve created a plethora of style inspo over on Pinterest to give you some ideas on how to style your blazer this Spring. Take a look here.
