Who says that blazers are just for work? Even if you have experimented with outfits involving a blazer for other occasions (internships, going out, fancy dinners etc.), you haven’t truly allowed your blazer to reach its potential unless you’ve incorporated it into a more casual look.
First and foremost, a classic blazer is the ultimate item of versatility in any girl’s wardrobe. Not only is a black blazer an ultra flattering shape, working for almost any girl’s body type, but it also can be incorporated into dozens of outfits. It even (especially) works for daytime looks that would be perfect for a lunch out with girlfriends or a casual date with that special someone.
This Fashionista really showcases just how versatile and stylish a blazer can look when worked into a more casual outfit. Paired with her denim shorts and casual T-shirt, the blazer adds structure to the outfit. It also is a great alternative to a sweater if you are feeling cold and want to cover up. This Fashionista’s shorts allow her to stay flirty by showing some skin (never bad for a casual date night) and the blazer balances out the outfit by adding a classic touch to the look.
As great as a blazer is with a look like this one, her accessories are what really pull her entire outfit together. Her gold watch and bracelet are trendy as well as classic, adding a hint of sparkle to the entire look. And her wonderful statement necklace draped over the casual T-shirt (one of my very favorite combinations) must be mentioned as well. A statement necklace is such a simple accessory, but endlessly versatile. Try Bauble Bar to find a statement necklace that fits your sense of personal style and would be perfect for a look like this Fashionista’s. This colorful option would be beautiful over any T-shirt.
One Simple Change: Try wearing a pair of wedges instead of flat sandals to add a new, sexy spin on a casual date outfit like this one.
