The Blazer is the quintessential garment for every working woman. Blazers can be worn with everything from jeans to dresses. The Blazer dates back to the 1800’s and was first designed for rowing teams. Originally the blazer was very loose and kept the rowers warm on chilly days. It gained attention when the rowers would wear these garments on dry land and served as a true status symbol.
The shape hasn’t changed much over time, the lapels get bigger and smaller and they hit in different spots but the basic shape has stayed the same. Making the blazer a classic item for any well rounded wardrobe. But who says classics have to be boring? Not me! I wanted to bring a fun colorful work wear appropriate look today. The classics are great for work but can be so drab sometimes. Fall Florals are a big trend and I thought I would join in. This look is so colorful that I kept the rest of the color palette quite simple by just using black and white. The entire outfit is classics but coordinated in a way that is not so typical.
Even if you aren’t the daring colorful type, a patterned blazer can add just the right amount of fashion to work wear. There are so many to choose from but you can start with basic patterns like plaid, houndstooth, and stripes and pair these with a solid colorful shirt underneath. I hope this post inspires you to create a more colorful work wear look!
