If I can get my hands on a bunch of colorful blazers, I will have a closet just for them. The fact that these pastel-colored blazers are the trend of Spring/Summer ’13 makes me happy. I’m ready to ignore the grey blazer sadly hanging from my closet now.
The solid, light color blazers give a touch of feminine quality. It’s simple to slide on a blazer anytime of the day. The Topshop peach blazer makes me desperately look in my wallet for some sort of prize money.
Sadly, it’s to the wishful shopping cart.
Although every blazer shares a similar square-shoulder, ability to cuff, and waist-length quality, they each hold something unique about them. The shape of the neckline, length of the sleeves, color, and much more sets them apart from one another.
I love the fact that you can wear it with anything. From a dress to jeans, blazers look great in anything you put on. I also love that it’s an anytime accessory. You can wear it when you’re heading off to class, off to a work interview, or even a small get together with friends.
For something that started out as something that only men wore, it has turned out as a style fit for everyone.
