Wearing Blazers With Shorts For Spring And Summer

Wearing Blazers With Shorts For Spring And Summer

I’ve always liked wearing shorts with blazers. There is an unexpected element in wearing something that is considered dressy like a blazer, with something that is usually considered casual, shorts. But I think dressier shorts, like trouser shorts work really well with blazers. I call it an alternative to a summer suiting look.

I also want to mention that biker shorts are trending right now especially paired with blazers. I know biker shorts are not for everyone so the slimmer trouser shorts are a good alternative that will give you the same kind of look.

I know some of us can’t wear shorts to the office but for those of us who work in creative fields, it’s a great substitute for skirts or pants. It is also a great look for luncheons, dinners or any fun outings for spring and summer.

When it came to restyling our Black Ivory Open Front Stripe Blazer, I decided to style it with my slim trouser shorts. I first styled this jacket for you here.

The bold stripes make this blazer a statement piece. The body is an easy, semi-shaped blazer with no buttons in the front and no lining. However, the fabric has enough weight to make it a beautifully structured blazer. I love the scrunched-up sleeves that makes it look like you have pulled them up.

Since this blazer is a black and ivory stripe, you can wear it over so many different color tops. Basically, it is the same as wearing a black or white blazer. Last time I styled it with our Golden Flounce Sleeve Blouse and today I have styled it with our new Coral V Neck Short Sleeve Top. This is a new color way in our basic rayon modal jersey tops that we run year-round.  The coral shade is very pretty and will look great under a lot of jacket for spring and summer. The fabric is super soft, and the body is easy to wear and long.

As for jewelry, I combined two necklaces together that I think work really well together. The first necklace is already a set of two necklaces, our Pearl and Gray Iridescent Bead Necklace Set. The second one is a shorter necklace that is a new piece I am calling our Antique Gold Silver and Pearl Medallion Necklace. So there are three necklaces here which you can mix and match in many different ways.
