During the summer, it’s a challenge to have to go into work everyday when it’s sunny and beautiful out. It’s especially hard if you work in an office and can’t show off your bronzed legs and sun-kissed skin. The desire to be half-naked is very tempting, but unfortunately, you have to be clothed to go into work. As a result, it’s easy to get into a summer-wardrobe-slump because certain pieces in your closet might be deemed inappropriate for the job, even though they work with the hottest months of the year. That’s why I love blazers–they have the ability to bring an outfit together, dress it up a little bit while adding a little bit of office formality at the same time.
Although blazers can be stiff and boring, they don’t always have to be! During the summer season, blazers that come out in stores all over, vary in arm-length and have a little bit of flair to them! Just like colorful jeans, blazers are coming out in all sorts of colors to match the array of hues that you see throughout June, July and August.
What’s great about them, is that they immediately spice up your work clothes, but they’re perfect to wear when you’re out for dinner with friends or even as a light jacket on cooler summer nights. They are super versatile and will give you that extra bit of sass that you need to get you throughout the day.
For this trend, I’d like to highlight H&M. H&M has always been incredibly trendy, catering to both genders from their teen years in high school to fashionable professionals in their 20s. You can walk into any H&M and find awesome prices, great fashion and a little bit of everything, ranging from casual dresses to classy suits. Currently they have an array of fun and funky blazers! Here are a couple of options that I liked, the most expensive being $39.95 and the cheapest being $19.95. Check them out below!
This royal purple blazer would be great to wear with a neutral colored pencil skirt for work and with tight skinny jeans in the evening. At only $39.95, my favorite thing about this piece is the way the hem scoops downward from the front to the back, creating a semi hi-low hemline.
The lovely pink blazer would look great with something white, whether it be white pants or a white-knitted dress. you wear something light, it’ll give you an overall angelic look. What better time to look sweet than during the summer time? And for only $39.95, it’s certainly a steal!
Want to shine like the sun? Well then this yellow blazer will do the job for you! This piece is bright and funky, and would look awesome with a pair of flared or tailored jeans! At only $24.95, you will definitely be glowing because of the great price, and the great color!
The cheapest option of all four blazers is this electric blue blazer that can be bought for a measly $19.95! What a great steal. I am set on getting this piece and wearing with a simple black dress, because this bright blue piece says everything people need to know about you: that you’re bold, funky and not afraid to be loud.
I hope this trend finds its way into all of your closets and that you manage to get a little extra somethin’ something’ into your typical work wardrobe.
