If you’re feeling especially bold, you may want to try a blazer as a dress! Celebrities like  Jennifer Lopez (in Rachel Zoe), Rihanna (in Stella McCartney) and Miley Cyrus (in John Paul Gaultier) all rocked the risqué look. Scandal actress Kerry Washington, took it a step further by just wearing a blazer, panties and heels in February’s Details magazine. We recommend that you cover your booty while you’re out, but if you’re wanting to take a fashion risk (outside of the office) grab the longest blazer you can find and forget the pants.

And if you don’t have a bright or printed blazer, you can still snag the look by pairing your dark blazer with a colorful wide belt and maxi dress. This season’s trend doesn’t have to break your bank though. Thrift stores have tons of colorful blazers in all different sizes that are inexpensive enough to fit anyone’s budget.

What do you think of the bright and bold blazers for summer?
