Now that the weather is starting to cool off, it’s socially acceptable to bring out my blazers. I still have a few black and blue ones from last season, but I’m looking for something extra special for this fall. Bold colors and prints can be just as wearable as your trusty old black staple, you’ll just want to keep the rest of your outfit and accessories simple. I’ve picked a few of my favorite bold blazer trends below for you to check out.
Bold Blazers You Can Actually Pull Off
When I first started having to dress for the “working world”, it was during my college internships. While one let me wear jeans and T-shirts everyday (it was at a radio station, after all), the other was definitely a more traditional office dress code. This is when I first really started wearing blazers and adding them to my wardrobe. While back then I stuck to the traditional black or other solid-colored blazer, I eventually branched out into more bold blazers, like ones with leopard or floral prints.
How to Wear a Bold Blazer
I categorized bold blazers into three categories that I see often when browsing the sales rack or Nordstrom.com – floral print blazers, colored blazers, and leopard print blazers. Here are a few ways to wear bold blazers with inspiration from fellow bloggers and celebrities.
Floral Print Blazers
Floral print blazers are perfect for adding some color and warmth to a neutral outfit, especially during colder months. You can bring the spring/summer season into drab winter just by putting one on!
Bold Color Blazers
If you can’t commit to a bold print, simply choosing a color aside from a traditional neutral is a step in the “bold” direction. Red and blue are two shades that go nicely with black, white, and camel/tan.
Leopard Print Blazers
Some say leopard is a neutral — what do you think? A leopard blazer can be a fun alternative to your traditional neutral. If you’re too scared to take the plunge, stick to a brown color palette so it’s not too showy.
