Fashionistas listen up! It is time to find yourselves a statement blazer for winter and with so many different choices of funky prints and designs hitting stores, we are certain that you will find yourself something to suit your individual personalities and styles.
What we love about printed blazers are that they can make a simple, understated outfit pop in one swift move. You can move from day into night by throwing on a fun blazer and completely revamping your look!
Blazers can also take you through that transitional phase from winter into spring, so let’s find the perfect blazer for you!
Bright and funky
With the cold weather and lack of sun, winter can dull the senses and lead us into a pattern of hibernation. This feeling can transcend into our wardrobe and the dull colours of black, grey and brown start to become daily hues in our outfits. Not that we’re saying there’s anything wrong with monochromatic! But throwing on a bright, patterned blazer over a black dress or top and skinnies combo will amp up your look instantly! Stripes, polka-dots, geometric patterns - even a bright neon blazer will make you shine inside and out!
Soft and floral
Blazers with soft prints and delicate hues will look fabulous thrown over a pair of white denims and blouses or tops in pastel hues - the perfect transitional look, come spring.
The best thing about blazers are that you can really throw them over anything; cropped denims, scalloped shorts, pencil skirts, high-waisted miniskirts, even rompers – by adding a blazer to your outfit you instantly add a touch of class to your look. We love seeing a funky blazer over a simple T-shirt and boyfriend jeans, or a navy blue dress or romper sported with a cute polka-dot blazer, paired with red brogues or heels – how cute!
Printed blazers are definitely a wardrobe staple this season and as they are so versatile you can wear them with anything and everything! We can’t wait to see what you girls come up with.
