There are some pieces of clothing that just radiate power. Red dresses, leather jackets and striking heels instill an extra dose of confidence and can turn an ordinary day into an extraordinary one. Another powerful piece that every Fashionista needs in her repertoire is a chic, tailored blazer.
I ran into this Fashionista as she was lounging on the iconic University of Georgia Herty Field in between classes. Mixed with casually cool elements like cargo skinnies and a fringed scarf, she dressed down the blazer for a day on campus. A mini floral print shirt breaks up the solid neutrals while wedged ankle booties tie the look together, providing both a casual and stylish vibe. Her ankle boots were a smart purchase on a student exchange trip to France during her high school years. Basics like those and her navy blazer never go out of style.
Blazers can transition from campus to an internship with ease. Sleeveless tops or dresses that may not be suitable in a work environment become office appropriate when topped with a nice blazer. If you would rather make a bolder statement with your outerwear, stay on trend by wearing blazers in this season’s colors and cuts. An ASOS oxblood blazer adds rich color or a studded blazer could increase the drama factor of your ensemble. The silhouette of the blazer has been rethought as well, with some designers adding peplums to the classic jacket. Whether you prefer a more traditional blazer or one with a twist, these outfit toppers are the way to go for a chic day on campus.
