When could you ever go wrong with a blazer? Winters through to spring, summer, and fall, blazers are always a key item to throw over your ensemble to add a final touch. Throughout these past few seasons, we have seen blazers in various forms, shapes, and colours. Each blazer has its own individual flavour and sense of style, and can bring something completely different to an outfit. More recently, we’ve been steering away from the classic black blazer and more into the realm of blazers with fresh colours and unique details. We saw Zara come out with coloured blazers with long and narrow black collars at the beginning of the summer of 2011. It was a big hit in the summery colours of white, fuchsia, and mango. Although the colour of the blazer may be super fun, the black collar holds it back and balances it into a sophisticated and essential piece.
This Fashionista puts together a perfect fall outfit and tops it off with a beautiful oyster-coloured COS blazer with a black collar. She pieces it with a black top from Theory, Levi’s denim shorts, black stockings, Steve Madden combat boots, a green J Crew bag, Ray Ban clubmaster sunglasses, and vintage silver jewellery. The combination of colours works perfectly as the ensemble is primarily black, but accompanied by the pop of the oyster blazer and a green bag, not to mention the blue of the denim shorts. To achieve this look of a fun but sophisticated fall blazer, try searching chez Zara, The Kooples, and ASOS.
