Fashion We Rock: Lead the Pack With These Colourful & Print-Tastic Blazers
This year the blazer is getting a much needed makeover. Basic black and navy – while classic – are sooooo predictable. Bright colors and prints update this wardrobe staple in a way that’s refreshingly unexpected. Designers like Emilio Pucci and Matthew Williamson set the tone with their Spring and Resort 2012 collections. Thus, the statement blazer was born! The eye-catching nature of this outerwear calls for more subdued pairings, but risks with color and print-on-print instances are allowed – even encouraged.
Check out these blazers in various styles and suggestions on what to wear with them. Go on, blaze the fashionable trail!
Electric cobalt will light up your life! The longer lapels of this blazer resemble a tuxedo and the structured shoulders are an edgy touch. If you’re daring enough, some printed pants (like the leopard pair above) would work or try a black tunic with black tights for a chill look. Motorcycle boots work in either instance. With black as your base, feel free to go bold with accessories. A chunky necklace and bracelets will have you looking like a rock star!
This elbow-length blazer is a definite Valentine’s Day contender! Red and purple floral print gives it that air of romanticism. The flowers appear a bit blurred, which makes this blazer look more like walking work of art. Toss it on over a fitted dress in a bold color. Red is an easy choice, but you can still keep it bold and sweet with winter white. Simple heels in a neutral color will finish the ensemble nicely. Got a hot date or dinner with friends? Now you’ve got the perfect look.
It doesn’t get much hotter than this pink! This classic blazer would look fly paired with a tan chiffon blouse (similar to the one pictured above) and slim grey trousers. As for shoes, gold spiked loafers would continue the menswear feel, but a pair of high heels would add a feminine lift. As a finishing touch, roll up the sleeves of the blazer to reveal crisp satin, then pile on the bracelets! Work it!
Lightweight. Three-quarter length sleeves. Boxy shape. These cool details set this leopard blazer apart from others with the same print. Layer it over a creme blouse – long enough to cover the booty – and keep the bottoms simple and slim. Cigarette pants and jeans are good choices, but you can really punch it up with maroon leather leggings. Keep jewelry to a minimum, a collar necklace is all you need. Finish with riding boots for a casual spin, or towering black heels to bring the sexy! Congrats, you’re the cat’s meow!
This blazer is a breath of fresh air! Sea foam green and all-over lace detailing prove that making a “statement” doesn’t have to be so “loud.” Pair with a crisp white blouse and a flared black leather skirt to get the leather and lace look. Add dark tights and high heels for a dressier vibe. Dark blue jeans and black patent leather oxfords will keep things casual and chic. Passersby will be green with envy!
This blazer will set your passion for fashion ablaze! The draped front and asymmetrical hem (it’s shorter in the back) are fun details! As a safe bet, pair this blazer with an all black outfit. To add some spice, try a dress in a contrasting color. A bright blue would look amazing! Go even further and rock a high heel in a similar color like purple. Sounds out there, but it will definitely make a statement! And that’s kind of the point, right?
This print is so fun! Take a risk and use all the colors in this blazer as inspiration for the other pieces to pair with it. A light denim shirt, black polka dot sheer leggings, and deep brown boots with a medium heel will look cool. Some funky earrings, like deep purple feathers and multiple small rings work well with this look. Have fun mixing prints!
