Lookbook: The Blazer

The theme for May is the blazer. The blazer can be the perfect feature to add to the classic look. It dresses up any outfit and adds a fashionable sense of sophistication.

Check out the three outfits below using the same blazer.

The Classic look: the classic use of the blazer to give a business/formal look. The trending cuff is a great detail, and while stylish gives of a sense of refined relaxation.

The pant is a comfortable alternative to previous decade's fitted trouser or pant suit trouser. It's high waist and cuffed bottoms makes it a trouser that is chic and wearable.

The booties are the perfect alternative to the office pump. The lace up military look with a moderate heel makes it the ideal fashionable accessory for the office.

The Event look: The blazer continues to provide a chic and sophisticated element when attending an event. Not work-related yet a professional gathering is the perfect time to experiment with other pieces but still use the blazer as your (professional) safety net.

The gray harems are an uber-comfortable yet styles feel. The colour fits in with the professional palette, yet the harems give off a fashionable and relaxed feel. Accenting the grayscale with a pop of colour such as the greenie (green over-the-shoulder bag) proved to be the perfect touch fitting in with this year's trend of bright colours.

The booties continue to keep the outfit professional while being a more comfortable and cozy alternative to the peep-toe or workplace pump.

The Dotted Pro: The blazer provides a soberness to the overtop pattern in the pant. It continues to be the idea touch for a chic and sophisticated appearance.

The polka dot pant, also another uber-comfy yet out there style, added a much necessary pop/pattern to the classic look. Perfect for an evening out, the two pieces seemed to compliment each other. Using an over-the-shoulder bag working the brown tones yet with a burst of red was a fitting accessory.

The booties, here too, are a comfy yet chic add on rather than the wedge or pump.
