How To Wear A Blazer Casually For Summer
As I mentioned a few weeks ago in one of my blog features, shorts and blazers or short suits, as they are called, are trending for spring and summer. Personally, I love wearing light weight blazers with shorts for summer and I have shown you this kind of a look before.
Today I have a new blazer that we have added to the online store called our Shawl Collar Light Weight Stripe Blazer and this is a perfect piece to wear with shorts. Not only are the colors of the stripe fabric perfect for summer but the weight of the jacket is super light too. It is fully lined in taupe lining and has thin light weight shoulder pads. The body is semi shaped with a beautiful shawl collar, two welt pockets and a one button closure in the front.
I think this is the perfect blazer for summer, So I have styled it with my black sailor shorts. It will of course work just as well over black jeans, cropped pants, skirts or even a dress. Since it has a blue stripe in there as well, it will also look great with regular blue jeans. Last but not least it will also look fabulous with white.
For a top to go with the jacket, I chose another new piece from our shop, our new White Peasant Top with Embroidery. The two pieces are very compatible and blend nicely together. The top is a pretty and feminine peasant top with a delicate embroidery in the front.
I also added our Ivory Blue Black Leopard Print Scarf, which is a light weight gauze scarf that works really nicely with this whole look. I love mixing the stripe with the leopard pattern, which takes the outfit to the next level.
For jewelry I used our popular Gold Tone Oval Shape Hoop Earrings. Since the top has a lot of detail in the front, I though earring would work better than a long necklace.
To keep the look casual for summer, I wore my Gucci espadrille slides and for a pop of color my small red cross body bag. The same outfit will look just as nice with higher heeled sandals or platforms.
