Ask Belle: Warm Weather Blazers
Mar 30, 2015
It’s spring. I am so ready for warmer weather but my wardrobe, sadly, is not. I am mainly looking to add a few lightweight blazers in fun but professional colors. I would like to spend less than $100 if possible.
Thanks for your help! Ellen
I keep a number of blazers on hand to throw on over my favorite dresses and skirt outfits. Here are a few options in both neutral hues and other colors.
Sleeker, fitted styles are usually better than boxier cuts. I also prefer one-button blazers, but depending on your figure, two or three buttons might be better for you.
A white blazer is a year-round staple for me. I like the contrast it provides to black pieces and how it lightens colored items. Need a two-button? This Calvin Klein blazer is a solid option. Plus-size? This UFO textile blazer looks like a nice piece.
Grey is a great color to add to basic black or wear over summer pastels. This Mango jacket has a nice look, but if you want something with a darker grey, this ASOS slim blazer has a modern cut.
A navy suit is a versatile piece, but you can wear the blazer so much you wear it out before it’s time. I suggest you have a navy blazer on hand to sub-in. This H&M jacket is a nice choice. Need two-buttons? Calvin Klein makes a nice blazer for the price. Plus-size? Try this Jones New York number.
Want to add some color to your wardrobe? Imagine these blazers in their Easter-egg hues over a navy sheath or a grey v-neck blouse and pencil skirt. A little color can go a long way to boosting an outfit.
Want bolder, less pastel hues? This raspberry blazer from Nine West has a great look. This bright yellow blazer would look great with navy separates. This emerald-green blazer from Modcloth is also a fun option.
