it sure feels like summer here in Athens. and summer means blazers. “wait, what?” you’re asking. yes, indeed. i love wearing blazers all year, including the summer. last week, on my YouTube channel, i posted a video 1 white blazer 5 ways. i wanted to pick up on that topic, today, and talk how to wear a blazer this summer more generally. i’ve gone through the archives and pulled some of my favorite summer outfits featuring a blazer from the past year.
and so it goes with fashion. vivid colors give us energy. subdued colors keep us relaxed. today’s ootd is a perfect example of how to add bright colors to your wardrobe. pink is known for its feminine qualities and approachability. does anyone remember the nursery rhyme sugar and spice and everything nice? a preppy gingham blazer would fall into that category. so i toughened the blazer up a bit by adding a graphic red t-shirt that adds a little power into the mix. white is a neutral that goes with everything. i love how these white chinos tone down the outfit and add casual ease.
if you are looking for one classic summer blazer that will serve you well this white linen blazer fits the bill. dress it up with a tweed dress and kitten heels. or dress it down with drawstring shorts, split neck top, and seersucker sandals. of course, white goes with everything. but this little number comes in island turquoise and flax.
here’s a tip i learned at the fashion show. pin a brooch on your blazer pocket instead of your lapel. i liked it. i really liked it. so i pinned my brooch on the flap pocket. have fun with the placement. feel free to position it lower.
