Spring’s Key Item: The Blazer

Statement suits were one of my favorite fall trends, so I am happy to see a component of the style making waves for Spring 2018.  Blazers, from statement prints to sharp tailored pieces, are the go-to layering piece this year, and can be worn for everything from a power meeting at the office to a fun night out.

 

I paired my oversized striped blazer with a patent leather mini and a luxe Adam Lippes tee shirt for a downtown look with a bit of ‘Clueless’ thrown in for good measure.

 

My over the knee boots are perfect for transitioning into bare-leg weather without freezing my stems off.    The block heel keeps them walkable, even on uneven Soho streets.

If you are looking to update your blazer wardrobe, definitely go for at least one with a bold print or color, preferably with a slightly oversized cut.  Grey plaid is the prints of the moment, but I am also loving the saturated color options like this rich green.  To help you find your perfect blazers for spring, I’ve rounded up some of the best available in plus below:
