TREND: A Colorful Twist On The Classic Blazer


Blazers are a wardrobe staple in most closets because of their versatility and ability to instantly glam up any outfit. However, most Fashionistas won’t opt for a blazer outside of the black, gray, or navy bubble. While blazers are constantly seen on the streets of Newark, this Fashionista stood out to me because of her creativity in color choice. This Fashionista went out of the comfort zone of most blazer-lovers, choosing a pink blazer to bring out the pink flowers on her sundress. Her silver sandals and cat-eye sunglasses added to the effortlessly chic vibe of the whole look. Zara is the hot spot right now for colored blazers, boasting a wide variety at reasonable prices. Green and red are just two of the colors offered, as well as a rainbow of other choices. 

As you are probably well aware, the outfit choices for blazers are practically endless. I’d be surprised to find anything that doesn't go well with a stylish blazer. And so, here are a few looks to try out in the coming months: If you have been dying to try out the color-blocking trend, this is your chance. A light orange blazer with a dark purple top and red shorts creates a more sophisticated look. While the pink of this Fashionista’s blazer definitely ups the femininity of the look, pieces like cutoff denim shorts, graphic T-shirts, and oxfords tone it down a bit. For all the super girly Fashionistas out there, try pairing the blazer with a floral bubble skirt, a white bow blouse, and pumps.

Hint: If you are uneasy about adding some edginess to your always faithful piece of clothing, choose a light colored blazer at first, like this Fashionista did, before getting your hands on a brightly colored one.
