We always love menswear-inspired blazers--from shrunken schoolboy styles to oversized options--including this season's must-try floral-print interpretations. Wearing this femmed-up jacket is easy; just follow our two styling suggestions to ensure you get it right!
Styling Suggestion #1: Pair it with tailored shorts to create a summer suit.
Surely you've seen some of your favorite starlets and stylesetters rock shorts suits? This look was all over the spring runways, so now's the time to partake in this bright and fresh look. Start with shorts that are tailored, but also a little relaxed in fit. (Neutrals like white, camel, or light gray work, but you can also try something brighter if you're feeling daring.) Grab an easy blouse to wear under your floral blazer--perhaps in silk or satin. Button your blouse all the way up for a prepster look, or keep it unbuttoned to your chest for a touch of sexiness. Finally, throw on your blazer as the star of your outfit. Push up the sleeves and wear with confidence!
Styling Suggestion #2: Style it with dark denim for a more classic take on the trend.
If you're a little more conservative or simply want some additional coverage, pair your floral blazer with a dark jean; we like either a cropped skinny or a bell-bottom. Steer clear from any bagginess or destruction--your denim should be clean and understated. Wear a white tee under the blazer and a bold lip color to finish your look!
