Blazers are my this season's obsessions. I can honestly cannot get enough of them. They are the easiest way to upgrade any look and make it sophisticated. Trust me, I have even made sweats work with them in the past. Here are few ways I can suggest to style them, by example:
One can easily translate this look for fall with opaque tights under the shorts and boots. It is a classic look which never goes wrong.
This is another great trick to use your summer dresses in fall - Simply, add a blazer! At least till the temperature drops down. A blazer adds definition to your body by giving a flattering silhouette.
Above I has style a short blazer with a dress and this time it hits right on the hips. This length looks great in a monochromatic look, as it avoids creating volume, and gives a slimming illusion.
Now, pattern mixing is not everyone's cup of tea but if it is something you wish to try this season, then a striped blazer would be a good piece to invest in. It goes with most patterns and prints and also looks good with solid contrast colors.
Another fall transitional trick - Wearing a blazer with a sleeveless jumpsuit. You would dress this up to look formal or add bursts of color and sparkle to make it more party wear, like it did. I have had this jumpsuit for 4 years and cannot NOT style it in a new way every time I wear it.
Again pairing a dress with a blazer (told you, I am obsessed). The blazer is part of an office suit and I have worn is with a casual dress. The blazers ends right at the hips, but the lengths work in proportion as this dress is shorter than the two above. Heels are an important part of the look here as well.
I hope I have inspired you to use your blazers/jackets this season.
They truly are a versatile investment.
