Hey guys and welcome to another post on BASIC by Lily and todays post is all about a very on trend item which is the blazer. Blazers are not just a handy thing to have for working in the office or a formal uniform job they are such a handy piece to have which makes such a difference to an outfit. You can dress it up or down and because they are in right now there are some really nice ones around. I literally only use blazers as jackets in the summer because they are lightweight but still work as a functional jacket. I currently have five in my wardrobe and my two newest ones are listed below. The others are older and are a bit out of date with the latest prints and patterns!
As I mentioned I have two of the blazers shown here and they are the snake print grey blazer and the mint green one both from Newlook. The grey one I have a petite size because the regular was a little too big on me even though they are meant to be oversized and it goes really well with just black or blue jeans and a white t-shirt or I do wear it with all black t-shirt and jeans with chelsea boots. The green I mentioned in my last post as wearing it with the white paperbag shorts and white t-shirt and that outfit with a low hair bun and aviator sunglasses is a very cool casual chic look. Its a really light crepe blazer too so its really handy for warmer weather or holidays too when it gets to that warm sunset but with a slight chill stage of an evening (can you tell I have sun holidays on my mind?).
I am especially loving the bright yellow blazer from Missguided I think that is such a fun colour especially for Summer and it would go with a lot! Just as an example I have a potential look here for a visual of how to wear it as a basic everyday look featuring products from both Missguided and Newlook.
So thats all for today I hope this post gave a little inspiration to you and I shall speak to you all soon!
