Blazers: Pastels & Brights

If the weather’s any indication, Spring is on the brink of  ’springing.’ Blazers are one of those essential elements to any wardrobe, but it’s also time to ditch the black and navy blue variations for pastels and brights. Pink, orange, yellow, green and blue take on sorbet and shocking shades this season, making for key winter to spring transition pieces to get you started. The sorbet shades add a layer of structured delicacy, I have the urge to wear them with black or white lace dresses. I’m utterly in love with the mint green A.L.C Zoe Blazer, it’s sharp yet sweet. As for the brights, these blazers are beckoning to be paired with more bright colors. I love the idea of mixing a bright lemon yellow sheer blouse or a pale floral dress with the fuchsia Elizabeth and James Pink Sue Worsted Wool Blazer. The fuchsia is so beautiful and bright, the color ups the ante and makes my skin glow.

The brights and pastels will help spice up your favorite pieces from last season, but mixing them together will give you the ultimate spring time look.
