Blazers are a huge trend in 2019! Enter the summer heat. True, it’s hot but you can still rock the blazer trend when done right. I’ve shared a fabulous shorts suit set here. Today, it’s all about a super lightweight, all-over stripe, statement-sleeve, summer blazer. And, get this. It looks and feels super luxe, but retails for only $39.
What I’m wearing:
You can find the coolest items at small boutiques. And, since many of them have online stores, access is greater than ever. I connected with the owner of Renee’s Touch, a boutique based in Boston. She got my full attention when she said she’d be launching an island collection in early summer. Hands down, my favorite item in that collection is this blazer, which she so sweetly dubbed “The Southwell Striped Blazer.”
I’d been eying a similar blazer from BCBG for a minute. A blazer like this one has so much to love. It’s made of a lightweight cotton blend, which makes it a breeze to wear during the summer. It has stripes. By the way, I’m wearing it in navy/cream stripes, but it’s also available in a taupe/cream option. And, the sleeves! The Juliette sleeves (puff sleeves that taper tightly at the bottom) on this beauty make me feel fancy when I wear it.
For size reference, I’m wearing the blazer in a size small. It’s a available in small, medium, and large, in both color options.
I’ve been wearing my summer blazer with summery whites. I used it to top off a basic tube top from H&M and some white joggers I got from Zara. I completed the look with my snake print slingbacks. This outfit would be fabulous with white sneakers too (see my current favorite pair here).
Stay tuned to see how I style the blazer with another 2019 trend–cycling shorts.
