Energizing the trendy blazer
May 11, 2014, 10:31 am

Every woman could use a few fabulous ideas to invigorate her trusty blazer to get through the season in style.

Neon is in: Make a major entrance by slipping on an chic neon blazer over a white or black ensemble. Or a maxi
dress in a dramatic cut or with a graphic print. Don’t be afraid to stand out in bright shades of orange, teal and, the most au courant of trendy colors: festive red. A satiny blouse offers just the right amount of shine that enhances your blazer. Just be sure to keep the rest of your look simple with black opaque tights, natural hair and muted makeup.

White for the day: Look for a little white dress that works with a stylish blazer. For a new take, experiment with heavier fabrics in halter-neck or racer-back styles. Just be sure to pair it with appropriate accessories like black or anthracite boots and bags.

Go glam in gold: Whether you go for an embellished mini or a metallic frock, both work well with a belted blazer. You should definitely go for a trendy blazer in mute tones that is just the right match for your embellished skirt or midi.

Day-to-night dressing: From boardroom to the ballroom, you can get major mileage out of your work blazer by offsetting it with a beautifully embellished blouse decorated with sequins, beading and appliques or, alternatively, a flashy leopard or zebra print. Then, swap your conservative pumps for opulent accents.

Master menswear: Try for the ultimate after-dark statement, and don a classic tuxedo suit. Balance the mannish mood with delicate accents such as ribbons, lace and bows.

Play peek-a-boo: Look for a whisper-thin silk blouse worn over a camisole, or try a striking sheer skirt layered over a mini. The stylish cut of the blazer will finish the look with panache.

Don bold baubles: Boost your dark colored blazer with a chunky gold bib necklace, sparkly drop earrings, or other colorful bijoux that adds texture to your whole look.

Tote a luxe clutch: An intricately decorated minaudière or an oversized buttery leather envelope clutch is an elegant option and has the ability to instantly glamorize every outfit.
