STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Blazers In The Blazin’ Heat

Summer, blazers and Florida. That combo doesn’t seem too appealing to most, especially those who have ever experienced the Floridian heat. Typically, blazers are the epitome of a classic look. If styled correctly they can be part of any look, not just preppy! Ralph Lauren has used blazers in virtually every ready-to-wear collection, and this spring 2015, so did Diane von Furstenberg and Emilio Pucci in their ready-to-wear collections. Pair a blazer with a graphic T-shirt and distressed jeans: chic and trendy. Pair a blazer with black skinnies and pointed heels: professional and strong. Pair a blazer with a midi skirt: feminine and playful. There are endless ways to style this year round staple, so why not in the summer, too?

This Fashionista perfectly captured the essence of summer in her look using a blazer. Her Ralph Lauren navy blazer screams classic and preppy. Personally, I would opt for a blazer without a crested logo or monogram look because I like to switch my style up overnight. A plain navy blazer is a great alternative for someone who likes to go from preppy to chic! Here, she paired her blazer with white jeans, another staple spring/summer piece. For shoes, the Fashionista wore white Ralph Lauren sandals to lend to the lightness of the whole assemble. Her earrings also caught my eye. Although the crested blazer has a total Ivy League essence, her ear jackets show her trendy side. Try these BaubleBar ones out for size!
