Blazer and Skirt Season

Blazer and Printed Skirt

I like to think of the seasons in fashion terms, and it’s just about boots and tights season, which will be followed by coat and scarf season, I expect. But last week it was merely blazer season, and so I used my layers sparingly. When it’s in the 70’s, you can still get away without covering up the legs, and I love the contrast between the summery skirt, light sweater, and the velvet blazer.

This season, go ahead and try:

  • A summer dress with a sweater over it
  • Shorts with a t-shirt and big cardigan
  • A lacy skirt with a velvety jacket (or vice versa)
  • Clunky boots with bare legs and a light skirt
Play with different weights, fabrics, and textures! Try wearing your dark-hued summery pieces with a few of your more wintery layering items to create a fun outfit, perfectly suited to blazer-and-skirt season!

    I’m totally going to try these ideas this week! It’s a really up-and-down spring, so this will let me bring in the summer stuff without being too cold.

    i have a hard time finding the weather circumstances when i need a sweater and a blazer, but can still leave my legs bare.
    i mean, it’s an adorable look – but last week i was wearing a blazer and i was too hot – this week i’m wearing it and i’m too cold.

    You look great, but THIS outfit not warm enough for the new weather we’re getting in Austin! Please let us know about other outfits that fit with 40 – 60 degree weather 😉

    I love this outfit! The knit top is so cute with your light skirt and I’m in love with the blazer. The color is great for fall.
