Your classic black blazer probably gets a decent amount of play in your closet rotation - so it’s time to give it a rest this spring. Instead of reaching for your basic black blazer, why not try one in a pastel color? These delicious candy colors are an easy way to freshen up your spring wardrobe - and here’s how to get the look in a blush colored blazer:
1. Start with a spring-y foundation: a white blouse over a pair of denim shorts. If you live in a colder climate, swap out those shorts for full pants - and opt for a blouse in a longer sleeve.
2. Layer on your pastel blazer. With such a neutral foundation, the blazer really shines. A white blouse and denim bottoms is the easiest combo to pull off - if you dare, try a blouse in a complementary color to make the blazer visually pop. Or play with a trio of colors with the blazer, top and bottom.
3. Grab a bold handbag - note how the red of the bag ties back to the blush color of the blazer. We also tied a pink skull scarf on the handbag for extra visual interest.
4. Finish off the look with neutral accessories: a pair of rounded sunglasses in tortoise and a pair of black and brown colored sandals.
