In my last post, The Power of the Pink Pantsuit, I shared ideas for styling this wardrobe staple. Today, I’m sharing three fun ways to style a pink blazer from that suit outfit.
The monochromatic suit is a big trend right now, but the real benefit of a suit is the multitude of ways you can style the separates. Since blazers work with almost anything–from jeans and shorts for a casual day, with slacks and a blouse for workwear, or with bling or pearls for an elegant evening out–there are lots of reasons for having several in your closet. And in this soft blush pink shade, you can wear it with so many things in your wardrobe.
While some fabrics work in almost any season, there can be exceptions. A heavy tweed blazer might not work in the summertime. Then again, if you work in an office where the AC is blasting, it might be a perfect choice! The same holds true for a blazer in linen. Depending on your climate, you might be able to wear it year-round. That is certainly true for those of us in Southern California as well as most southern states but may not work in the North.
When you can pick up a blazer under $35 that is lined, well-made and fits well, as this one does, it’s a smart shopping choice.
Three Fun Ways to Style a Pink Blazer
In the title, I included the word “fun” because I am trying some different looks today. Let me know what you think…
With a Leopard Skirt
For the first look, I styled the blazer with a pleated leopard skirt that I’ve styled many times before. Honestly, if you don’t have one, pick one up! They are incredibly neutral and so easy to dress up or down. Mine is older and from Target, and they have a current version that is very similar. (See Shop The Post following the photos.)
I went for a pretty safe pattern mixing here, as I added a soft pink boatneck tee with thin black stripes. This one is from last season, probably something from the clearance rack at Target. (Gosh, I’m discovering more and more fashion from Target in my closet!!) That allowed me to wear these black espadrille sandals. A round straw bag added a touch of summer and tied in with the braided tone in the shoes.
Red and Pink Combo
The second outfit is a bit bolder. Do you have a red striped tee in your wardrobe? Pull it out and try it with pink. I promise you will like it!! It’s one of the fresh combos that pop up every so often and have been popular since last year. Mine is from Lands End–a favorite for summer tees.
The red ruffled slides are also from Target–last year–and continue to be fun! Red shoes are always so eye-catching, aren’t they? Even more so than yellow? Maybe.
I’m loving these statement earrings also from–you guessed it!–Target. They were the inspiration for this whole look. The hair, once again blowing in the wind? Well, that’s another story…
Jeans and Pink Blazer
This lighter shade of pink can almost serve as a neutral and looks great with jeans. Graphic tees are always fun (unless they have a less-than-positive motto, of course!) and I’ve included a couple below in the Shop the Post section.
Jeans and a blazer is such a classic look and it’s one that has been my go-to for most of my adult life. Comfy jeans and a blazer looks appropriate for almost any casual occasion and I’ve even worn it with sneakers for travel.
These espadrilles are my newest acquisition. They are by Franco Sarto, one of my favorite Italian shoe companies. They are well-made and incredibly comfortable as well as super cute. For me, that checks all my boxes.
