This year the blazer is getting a much needed makeover. Basic black and navy – while classic – are sooooo predictable. Bright colors and prints update this wardrobe staple in a way that’s refreshingly unexpected. Designers like Emilio Pucci and Matthew Williamson set the tone with their Spring and Resort 2012 collections. Thus, the statement blazer was born! The eye-catching nature of this outerwear calls for more subdued pairings, but risks with color and print-on-print instances are allowed – even encouraged.
Check out these blazers in various styles for every budget and suggestions on what to wear with them. Go on, blaze the fashionable trail!
