SUMMER BLAZERS: THEY'RE A THING
By Grace Cook, 5 August 2018
Let's face it – when you think of adding something a bit extra to an outfit, a blazer's not necessarily at the forefront of your mind. But it should be. Especially when it’s in a bright colour like orange, green or pink. Far from being a wardrobe basic, this light summer layer can be the finishing touch to a trend-led outfit, as demonstrated by this street-styler during London Fashion Week Men's. Tailoring never looked so good.
Ways to make an impact with a blazer number 1: coordinate your look tonally. This jade-green shade looks fresh with a crisp tee and chunky sneakers – the zingy orange bag provides the perfect colour contrast. But what’s really mega about this look is the mix of the boxy blazer with the slinky slip skirt. We do love a contrast.
Try it out for yourself – the best way to make this fluoro-pink slip skirt suitable for day is by pairing it with a logo tee. The lighter pink blazer stops the vibe from being overly sweet, while the sneakers keep it snappy and bring the whole look back down to earth. We love this kitsch Lady Gaga tee, too – the pink accents on the top totally work that tonal vibe. Sorbet perfection.
