How To Wear A Black Blazer For Spring - Just Style LA

Hello Ladies and welcome to the first day of Spring!

I love spring, the weather is perfect and beautiful flowers start to bloom all around us. This year especially there is a sense of hope in the air as well, with the Covid 19 cases going down slowly and more people getting vaccinated. There is a light at the end of the dark tunnel we have all been living through for the last year.

Speaking of spring, I think all women should have at least one black blazer in their closet. It is one of those wardrobe essentials that is a must have. They are obviously perfect for fall and winter, but they can work just as easily for spring.

Before I talk about today’s look, here are a few quick tips on how to wear them for spring:

  1. Choose blazers that are in spring friendly fabrics and lighter in weight.
  2. Go for ¾” sleeve length or scrunch/fold up the sleeves
  3. Wear them with light or bright colors
  4. Accessorize them with spring must have jewelry and scarves
  5. Go for loose and easier silhouettes
  6. Wear them with sandals and show some skin

For today’s look I have a new top that is perfect for spring and summer. It is made out of a slightly crinkled rayon fabric. The base is ivory, and it has a black aztec inspired stripe print. The shoulder area has a pretty lace insert. The body is loose and long, with small buttons in the front. It has long sleeves, but you can fold it up if you prefer.

I am wearing it with our Black Shawl Collar Open Front Blazer to show you how you can wear this blazer for spring and make it look fresh. I have styled this blazer a few other times and we keep re-stocking them since it is such a great classic black blazer.

Inspired by a tuxedo jacket, It has a semi loose body that is fully lined. It has a long thin shawl collar and two pockets with a flap. 

Going back to my tips on how to wear a black blazer, you can see how I have added a new spring scarf in a fun coral print and a new bold necklace to make the whole look more springy. To finish off the look I am wearing open toe heels and a fun clutch which also give it a nice fresh look.
