It's kind of impossible for me to say how much I love blazers and jackets. They top off my outfits pretty much 80-90% of the year. They make life so easy..it's just like BAM: instantly polished and pulled together. So many times, I've tried to top an outfit off with a sweater and it just won't come together. Then, I switch to a blazer and it's like magic. So, I'm pretty sure this love affair isn't going to end any time soon :). Brie seems to have one going on herself. This Feb look of hers was the point of departure for one idea here: an open blazer above a slightly longer heathered gray tee, paired with light-wash denim. What makes this outfit stand out is the mix of pale neutrals. The lighter colors are undeniably spring-worthy. I've envisioned keeping that brightness going with metallic silver heels, but you could finish it with nude flats just as easily. Or, add a brightly colored shoe for an extra pop. If, like me, you're the type that needs a second sliver of color too, try a scarf or a pendant. On the yang side of this little light-and-dark demo we've got going on is this leggings and sweatshirt pairing. With gray sneakers, this looks like just another slightly chilly day at the gym. Until...:) ..behold the beauty of the blazer. It has the power to instantly elevate a look. It takes this ensemble from gym-look to casual restaurant, movie night out, exploring downtown. Two caveats if you're taking this look for a spin: 1)avoid sweatshirts heralding your favorite sports team or one borrowed from your boyfriend. Something a shade more refined is required, minimalist in feel, body skimming in fit and 2) make sure the blazer is longer than the sweatshirt. Finish it with a layered selection of your fav personally meaningful necklaces.Happy Blazering! :)
