wear it with: bright blazer

04 February 2013
you might have seen my new j.crew bright pink blazer on instagram. it's no longer available, but you can find a similar one here. it's the first time that i've purchased a wardrobe staple in a bright; i tend to stick to neutrals and play with color and pattern in my accessories, but i couldn't pass this blazer up!

you can keep a bright blazer "safe" by sticking to neutrals in the rest of your ensemble. or you can play it up by mixing patterns and adding complementary or contrasting colors to your outfit. either way, choose what makes you feel confident!

so, tell me - how would you wear this blazer?


wear it with: bright blazer


blazer | jeans | blouse | loafers | booties | button-down | skirt

I would wear the one on the left on the weekend / out on a date and the one on the right to a work meeting. Love them both! I need to incorporate more blazers into my woredrob!

I tend to stick with neutrals as well, but I can't pass up a bright blazer (or pants). I would tend to stick with the one on the left too. It's just so "me" :)

Have a great week Ashley! xoxo

I'd love a bright green or yellow blazer for these gloomy cold days!

I like the more casual outfit (jeans > skirt anyway!). Pretty-colored blazers are awesome!

Alexa said...

They are both cute looks. Love number 1 though!

Alex said...

Such cute outfits! I'm a big fan of the leopard print flats :)

Way to go you for being bold in your blazer selection! I love both of these looks. I'm a jeans and a t-shirt girl all the way, so I'd have to pair a blazer with the look on the left.

Oh I love the skirt. I've been looking for a floral pencil skirt since i saw the Studio Max Mara Spring 2012 ad campaign with those gorgeous floral dresses.

How I love mint green! That jacket is just fabulous and that floral skirt, I must have!
