Weekly Round Up: All the Blazers

Blazers are my jam!! If you follow me on Instagram, you likely know this already. But yes, I probably wear blazers 4 out of 5 days a week.

Here are five reasons why I love blazers:

  1. They provide two completely different looks in one outfit (separate post coming soon).
  2. Blazers gives that polished professional look that I like to have when meeting with clients. I have learned that people treat you how you look. It may not always be accurate or fair, but that’s the way it is. I want to always be taken seriously so I make sure that I carry myself accordingly. This is especially the case for us females who work in male-dominated industries.
  3. They’re good for covering up certain areas, especially the back side of those pants that might have gotten a little snug since you first bought them. 🙂
  4. Blazers are good for toning down a bright outfit or providing a color pop  for a neutral outfit.
  5. They are perfect for layering.

Let’s get started.

Teal, Orange, and Houndstooth. This teal blazer is one that I found at Macy’s several years ago for like $10.  It has the ruched detailing on the sleeves, which I love. Decided to pair it with a sleeveless orange bow top. I wanted to keep the rest of the outfit plain so I added these classic black and white houndstooth pants and black pumps.

Navy, Green, and Pink.  I felt like a little print mixing so I paired this navy and white striped blazer with this navy and white gingham button up. I love navy and green together so I added these green pants and of course I had to have some pink in here somewhere so…

Red, Aqua and Gray. This is a situation where I used the gray blazer and shoes to tone down an otherwise bright outfit.

Gray, White and Floral. This white sweater has nice lace details and the sleeves are sheer lace, which makes it inappropriate for work (IMO), but totally appropriate for an event that I was attending after work. Adding the blazer made it  easy to transition this outfit from work to an evening event. I wanted my floral shoes to be the focal point of this Casual Friday outfit so I made everything else neutral. Tip: Cuffing your jeans can also help achieve this effect.

    I totally agreed with you. Blazers do polish look, and the way you styled each and everyone of them is absolutely beautiful. I couldn’t believe you scored the orange blazer for $10. Atimes the deals in the store are the best.

      Thank you so much!! There’s nothing like a good blazer. You’re right, sometimes you can find great deals in the store.

    I would love to see your blazer collection hanging in you closet.
    I donated all my blazers once I resigned from my old job but I did keep an Italian navy one I could not part with. Remind me to show it to you.

    I’m so late to the game apparently. I SO want some of these blazers (or ones similar) and everybody is sold OUT! Need a large. Any suggestions?

      Haha! You’re not late at all. Places like H&M, Express, NY & Company target the business professionals so they have them all the time. Also, check Poshmark. Let me know if you still have trouble finding them. Thank you for reading!

    Absolutely loved every look here. You styled them perfectly, and you are right it just something about a good blazer. I have a thing for blazers as well, and usually find really good ones at Goodwill. I will be taking some pages from the Pink & Gabulous book for my blazer styling!!

    As a sometimes minimalist, I’m loving the last one with the gray blazer and white lace top! The pop of floral is also unexpected and really nice! You are the queen of blazers G!!

      Thanks, J! I really liked that look too. I had an event after work so it was the perfect set up. xo
