This post is a response to a request for more ways to style my Red Notched Blazer from LOFT. I’ve posted several outfits on Instagram showcasing this lovely statement blazer. It is such a versatile piece though so I’ve put together a few more outfits and ideas. (And LOFT is having a huge sale).
When I’ve worn the blazer, I have tended to let it take center stage with a back drop of either black or white but there are lots of other ways to style this beauty. For all the styled outfits I selected pieces that will easily transition to spring as well as stand alone without the jacket (read you can wear them through SUMMER … BONUS)!
For the first look I picked pieces that bring in another pop of color. I showcased the yellow in the outfits because this piece stands alone beautifully but I think it would pair equally awesome with a bright blue or turquoise (see options for both below). Come spring I will pair mine with a pale pink shell as my contrasting color choice (also shown below).
For the second look choose an interesting pattern (florals, geometric or stripes). To allow the shirt to more easily stand alone also look for interesting details like ruffles or lace-ups. I love the tiny floral print on the Jasmine blouse and the ruffle details of the Chevron blouse. For stripes I opted for the navy and white combination because I think it provides the best transition to spring but I also love black and cream as an option. Another way to do prints is to put the pattern on the bottom. The stripe skirt is a perfect way to mix this idea.
Depending on how formal or casual you want to be I would probably opt for a pencil skirt (I found it didn’t pair as nicely with flared skirts), ankle pants and denim for a casual look (blue, black or white). The blazer works well with all of them it just depends on the occasion. Again, I would opt for black or navy as the base color (depending on the shirt selection) and as we move into spring white will look excellent with the pop of red!
