Last Friday I was window shopping with my hubby when I ended up buying an Olympian blue blazer from Mango. The color is so striking that I couldn´t let it go, and yet I wasn´t so sure how to wear it without overwhelming it. I really can use some inspiration from celebrity fashionistas such as Jessica Alba and Eva Longoria, as well as some cool looks from fashion bloggers.
A bright blazer will clearly shine out if paired with neutrals such as black or white. I´m loving how Jessica Alba looked street cool in pop blue blazer paired with black tank, Current/Elliott ‘The Stiletto’ star print jeans, and Givenchy sandals. Eva Longoria looked equally gorgeous, chic and cheery, in her yellow pop blazer worn with all white – white tank and white jeans. A light orange handbag and nude sandals were perfect finishings.
The Pop Blue Jacket
You can either copy exactly Jessica Alba´s look or you can recreate it, team your color pop blazer with a white tee and black shorts, complete with spiked white loafers or black smoking slippers. Add a great leather bag in black.
The Cheery Yellow Jacket
A bright yellow like mustard looks great when mixed with white. You can either wear it with a white top and white pants, or opt for a white/black print pants to add more interest, then slip into sexy black pumps.
Just like the pop out bright blue and yellow jackets, pink and green jackets look great with neutrals colors too. However, you may add some pattern, such as stripes or polka dot (in black and white) or add a distraction by wearing a black cropped top.
The Sweet Pink Jacket
This rose pink blazer isn´t just popping out because of its brightness, it´s also speaking out clearly because of its style, V drape. It looks great with this leaf print skinnies but you can also team it with other white or ivory and black printed pants. Complete the look with black ankle boots or black pumps.
The Smart green Jacket
Keep things smart with green jacket, wear it with all black from your hat down to your shoes, or create a street smart combo by going for a stripe top and leather pants. Add a fedora hat and black shoulder bag to really glam it up.
What about you? Are you a fan of bright blazers to pop up in a look? How do you wear it?
