How-to guide to wearing bright blazers
Blazing a colourful trail this season are bright, summer blazers. Spring Summer 2012 is all about neons, hot pinks and tangerines, even on classic blazers. With the color blocking hangover from last season, it’s going to be one hell of a riot! So here’s a quick how-to guide to wearing your brights right.
Yes, you can OD on colour!
It’s time to break the rules and have some summer fun with colour blocking. Team a hot pink blazer with a bright and striking colour like green, orange or red, for example. Throw on a pair of skinny jeans in a neutral colour (White is an eternal summer favourite) and a pair of white shoes. The idea is to make a statement with the blazer in stark contrast to the rest of the outfit.
Pick accessories that complement both of the color blocked elements. For him, a hot pink blazer and a green vest both look fantastic with gold, so pick a metallic gold necklace for the outfit. Lastly, throw on a pair of classic vintage-inspired sunnies for a chic day at the office.
Alternatively, if you’re looking to catch a lazy lunch with friends or spend the day at university, you can dress down this look by pairing your bright blazer with a plain, striped or printed T-shirt and a pair of denims. And remember, Bold is beautiful!
