Before studying abroad, I spent my last day in America bleaching cut up jean shorts and shopping with one of my best friends, Sam. At the time, she had been hunting down a blush pink blazer. We scoped out three different malls, two outlet plazas and a few thrift stores, but no luck. When I came to Barcelona, I found variations of the jacket in virtually every clothing store I entered. Deep fuchsia, pastel, neon, salmon – all for a reasonable price.
I saw this week’s Fashionista when I was walking back from lunch in El Raval, a hip neighborhood with so many trendsetters it could probably have its own street style blog. I had a flashback of my friend’s search for the blazer, and I when I saw her I knew this was a trend I needed to expose.
A tailored pink blazer adds femininity to any ensemble, and this Fashionista used her Blanco one to balance out the grunginess of her classic Chucks, distressed shorts and fringe shirt (both of which she cut herself after purchasing from Secondhand in Sabadell, Spain. She also added a soul factor to her outfit by topping it all off with a jazzy Forever 21 fedora.
Kim Kardashian, Miranda Kerr and Alicia Keys are just a few celebrities that have been spotted sporting the trend. You can dress it up or dress it down. The possibilities range from the business-casual look to girly tomboy chic. Either way, wear a pink blazer to set your style ablaze.
