With the end of the semester approaching and presentations piling up, everyone is starting to switch out their tank tops for blazers. Business wear no longer has to mean the same old black dress pants and blazer. A colored blazer or a patterned top is a great way to spice up your look while still following that dreaded dress code. This Fashionista manages to still look fashionable, while sticking to the presentation protocol with her blush colored blazer. This season blazers are starting to make their way into street fashion as well and are a great substitute for a simple sweater.

How To: Invest in a well fitted blazer this season. Not only will this blazer be an appropriate go-to for your upcoming interviews, meetings and presentations but you can also have fun with it and work it into your day and nighttime looks. There are so many different types of blazers this season whether you want something unique like a cape blazer or one with longer lapels, these blazers are great for a girl’s night out. For a chic dinner outfit, throw on your blazer with a simple tank top, leather envelope skirt and some pointed toe heels to tie together the look.
