On Monday, we featured our top summer picks from LOFT and the best seller from that post is their Modern Blazer, in white. So today we’re sharing three ways to wear a blazer in the summer.
Scroll below to see our outfit inspiration using pieces you already have and some new suggestions.
First, let’s talk about the key piece, the LOFT Modern Blazer.
Key Piece: LOFT Modern Blazer
Modern Blazer, $140 plus 30% OFF with the code SUNNY
I like this blazer for several reasons.
First, a one-button style is traditional and creating a flattering shape that is easy to wear as a separate.
Second, the fabric is summer-appropriate made up of 20% linen. So it’s light, but you won’t look like a wrinkled bed.
3 Ways to Wear a Blazer in the Summer
Think of a blazer in the summer like a denim jacket, just a bit more elegant. It works with a range of bottoms, from shorts, and skirts to proper trousers.
You can also throw it over jeans or a dress like we did here.
Let’s start with shorts.
What’s important here is to notice that the fabric of the blazer and the shorts complement each other. As a result, both are light and seasonally appropriate.
Because the shorts are casual, and I’m assuming you’d want the option to take off the blazer, this simple v-neck tee, also from LOFT, is well priced and available in XXS – XXL.
Then, a sophisticated flat, like our favorite leather slide from Tuckernuck, works well as it grounds the look.
I picked this woven crossbody from Madewell to coordinate with the flats. This bag is tiny (much smaller than the picture looks), so please check the measurements.
Finally, wear your everyday jewelry. Keep it simple. I included these under $100 stud earrings in an untraditional yet chic oval shape.
With a Midi Skirt
I love repeating popular pieces from earlier posts because I want you to use what you buy.
This midi skirt was wildly popular, and as it arrives in readers’ mailboxes, we’re hearing how much they love it.
Sizes are limited, but it is available in regular and petite.
For the under layer, I’m using this pale blue racerback tank from Banana Republic, in regular, tall, and petite, in XXS – XXL for $30.
Wide Leg Trousers
In our third look, we’re playing with white and ivory.
Please note that these are too short on the model. A wide-leg like these needs to be full length; they need to puddle on the top of your shoe, so you get a long leg line.
Otherwise, your pants will look too short 😉
And with wide-leg trousers, you need a shoe with height and weight. So I’m using these braided wedge sandals in white available at Nordstrom.
As an under piece, grab this Luxe Touch Tank from Banana Republic, a reader favorite from a few weeks ago.
