anonymous asked: hey! today it’s my bestfriend’s birthday,so she’s taking me and some other girls out to celebrate. we’re going to a cafe-bar downtown in the evening,so the temperature will be at about 25 degrees. i want to wear my new dark blue blazer,but i don’t know what to combine it with. a little help? :/ (Btw,i’m 16)
Thanks so much for asking! I myself have a nice dark blue blazer, and actually once you get into it, it goes with a lot of things. So, here are some suggestions
Dresses: To be honest, a dark blue blazer will go with pretty much any form or colour of summer dress. Take a look here where I put it with a navy spotted shirt dress. If you have any white or cream dresses, this will look really nice together, particularly with lace ones (which’ll be extra on trend too!). While you’re out shopping, try it out with other colours to see what works for you
Dress: Dorothy Perkins, £36
Skirts: Mix and match the blazer with all kinds of skirts - skater, mini…A skirt that matches the colour of the blazer will look nice with a cream or white contrasting top. Try tucking in the top, and the outfit will naturally accentuate curves!
Skirt: River Island, £16
Shoes: Seeing as a blazer is reasonably smart, brogues will go really well with it. However, stay clear or black shoes - brown, white or navy will work best
£37, now £18
White: Anything white or cream in general with a dark blue blazer will create a nice simple contrast. Try out different kinds of tops and dresses.
Top: Rag & Bone, £105 (sorry! Just wanted to show the style, you could pick one up at Primark for buttons though)
Jeans: Very simple, and very basic, but a good pair of skinny jeans will go well with a blazer, balancing out the look from smart to everyday. Especially if you have a long line or boyfriend blazer, skinny jeans will also balance out weight of clothes from bottom to top
Jeans: Topshop, £38
Also try gold jewellery, which I think will work nicely. For a more casual look, rolling up the sleeves can make a huge difference!
Hope that helped! x
