How to Update Your Blazer Game for the Warmer Months

Happy Friday guys!  So if you follow my style at all, or if you’ve seen me in NYC (headed there today actually), you know I loooooove a good blazer.  I wear and own SO many.  I think they’re so chic and polished, but can be made to look incredibly hip when paired with some unconventional choices.  Especially ripped denim!

Since I love them so much, I recently invested in some that I can get a lot of wear out of during the warmer months, as a lot of the ones I had were more wintery.  I shop differently for blazers for the warmer months, of course, so here are some things I keep in mind that will help you if you’re stuck on how to take them into spring and summer:

How to Update Your Blazer Game for the Warmer Months

-Opt for Lighter Colors

This isn’t to say you can’t wear a black blazer in the warmer months, you totally can and my other tips will help you rock one, but there’s nothing like picking a blazer in a spring or summer color to feel fresh and updated for the warmer seasons!  I absolutely love this white one I scored in London.  I only ended up paying 6 pounds for it, which just goes to show you that you don’t need to drop a fortune to look luxe!  I also bought this pale blue one which I’m obsessed with and has such a great cut/shape.

-Opt for 3/4 Sleeves

I love how 3/4 sleeve blazer looks.  I find it ends up have a slightly more casual air, and you can show a bit more skin! Some even have a cute little button by the elbow, which is such a nice detail!

-Opt for Light Fabric

This is probably a no-brainer, but you don’t need to wear something heavy in springing summer.  In fact, you’ll probably end up sweaty and gross if you don’t.  Try to go for blazers made with thin, light-weight material.

-Try wearing Prints

While plaid trended hard this fall, it’s a dark, heavy print that won’t look very updated for spring.  Try going for a really light check or gingham print, or even go all out and opt for a floral print!  The upside to a print blazer is that it’s statement, so the rest of your outfit can be basics/neutrals, which means a super easy yet super chic look!

-Opt for Unique Details or Fabrics

There are so many fun takes on blazers lately, it’s really made me the happiest girl!  I just got a linen one with exposed stitching, and I think it’s so cool!  Opting for a blazer with fun details like that, especially in spring colors, can really elevate a look!  You can also look for blazers made out of silk or trench material, or look for details like built-in belts, big buttons, or embroidery.

Who else loves a good blazer?  How do you wear them in the warmer months?  Let me know below!

Bisous,

    I love blazers too they just instantly turn an outfit into chic. These are all great tips on dressing a blazer for warmer months. I also like to wear them with denim shorts. There is a shorts suit trend going on too, so you could definitely wear a blazer with some paper waist shorts as well. xoxo, Christine

    Blazers are always a great choice to add to any wardrobe, especially when the weather is starting to get warmer, I really love how you paired it with a simple t-shirt and ripped jeans, very cute!

    Love these YSL heels. They instantly lift the whole look. Yes to 3/4 sleeves and they look so chic. I can’t believe this blazer is only 6 pounds. You carry it like million bucks.

    I’m a big fan of blazers myself, so when I found your posts, that was exactly what I looked for. There is always a way to make a twist and wear your favourite pieces not minding the season. This white one is perfect for the summer season for sure, and I really like how you styled it! The shoes and the bag are such a great addition to the look!
