Styling a Colored Blazer

When the warm weather hits and the bright colors come out, those dark, stodgy blazers we’ve been wearing all winter suddenly start to look a little out of place. A black blazer with black pants begins to look a little depressing amidst the sunshine and neon. So like with any other part of the wardrobe, it’s time to mix up our blazers! Below are a few alternatives to still achieve the same look, but with a little more flair.

How to Style a Colored Blazer

1. I love the brightly colored blazers I’ve been seeing lately. I’ve found that I like them best styled with a pair of white jeans, so this would be more of an evening, weekend or casual Friday outfit. Amazon has some surprisingly nice looking blazers this spring, including this pink one! I paired it with these white jeans from (where else) The Limited. I went for a patterned white shirt instead of plain so it would be easily distinguishable from the jeans. Finally I went with these summery wedge sandals from Nordstrom to complete the look!

2. This outfit is a great one for the office. The black pencil skirt keeps it refined and appropriate for even a more conservative office. I love the color of this blush blazer from H&M. I always find myself pleasantly surprised with their blazer collection, and they’re always at a great price. I just paired this with a lace cami from Maurices, because those are my favorite, and a simple black pump from Macy’s.

2. This is also a great professional outfit for spring because it has a lighter color pant (The Limited) and a navy blazer instead of black. This blazer is also from Amazon. Again, I just paired it with a navy tank top from Maurices. I also just went with a simple nude pump. During the summer this would be a typical work outfit for me if I choose to wear pants (since I typically wear a skirt or dress).

Do you wear colored blazers in the spring and summer? How do you like to style them?
