I absolutely love Blazers! It’s a mom-must-have item because no matter what you wear (within reason) a blazer makes everything look better. Have to run errands but you don’t feel like changing out of that comfy T-shirt and jeans? No problem! Just throw on a blazer! Go from frump to fabulous in record time. Every woman should have at least 2 blazers in her closet. One black, one white. It’s best to stick with neutrals at first so that you can wear your blazer with anything.
If you can only afford to invest in ONE structured blazer, we’re loving this navy blue Vince Camuto Medallion Blazer ($101) via Nordstrom.
If you aren’t a beginner blazer-wearing fashionista, then indulge in a new blazer in a pastel color, cool stripes, floral print or a light weight material that will be the perfect addition to your summer wardrobe!
Here are some of our favorites…
How To Wear Blazers
LEATHER: Leather blazers go with just about anything in my book. (Even faux leather!) You can wear them with jeans and a tee or over a dress to add a rough edge.
MOTORCYCLE STYLE: I also think that moto-style blazers also go with darn near anything. Course, that’s part of my own personal style! The nice thing about motorcycle jackets is that they are becoming more mainstream and are available in a variety of different materials and textures like this Free People Tapestry Moto Jacket.
BRIGHT COLORS: Bright colored blazers are a great choice for spring! It ads a nice pop to a neutral outfit that is perfect for the warmer weather. Colors to consider are cobalt blue, emerald green, coral, orange and pink. You can also go for pastel shades of the same color for a more subtle look.
WITH SHORTS: I’m loving the spring trend of wearing blazers with shorts. Right now it’s still a bit on the cool side here in New England, so tights are a must with shorts. It’s still an easy look to pull off and doesn’t require a lot of prep. A perfect option for a busy mom that wants to look hip!
