Spotted all over the runways of New York Fashion Week 2012, the blazer is definitely a substantial piece for women as well as men this spring and summer. Perfect for day to night transition, the blazer is a classic piece that never goes out of fashion. Whether it’s for an interview or a night out, giving that sophisticated edge or a quirky twist for any attire makes it instantly chic.
I spotted this Fashionista's classic navy blue blazer while on my way to lectures. It's classic colour is great for wearing over anything. This Fashionista has decided to pair her blazer with a striped satin blouse, giving her casual outfit the colour pop it needs, and a pair of jeans, automatically making the blazer more casual and wearable on a daily basis, while keeping her warm on this chilly day.
The blazer is a great jacket of choice for a spring day. Light enough to wear all day long yet warm enough to keep the English chill off. Pair your blazer with jeans like this Fashionista or pair with a draped, patterned dress, allowing you to wear your summer favourites whatever the weather. For a pretty, girly look, pair with dolly shoes or chunk it up with boots for a more casual look.
All over the high street, the blazer is definitely easy to find this season with a variety of styles and fits. So do you fancy a classic structured blazer like this Fashionista, or would you prefer to give your outfit a modern twist, venturing away from the traditional structure? If so, try this loose fit ASOS Tux Blazer, add some sophisticated colour with this pastel coloured kimono style blazer, or go all out with a flood of colour like this electric blue blazer. You can even mix two catwalk styles into one, adding pattern to your blazer with this neural striped blazer.
Whatever your style, the blazer is a definite statement piece this season, and a must in any Fashionista's wardrobe. Wear all day at Uni for a sophisticated casual look and take it into the evening pairing with heels for night time chic.
