I don’t know about you, but I’ve never been the “I only wear something once” kind of gal. If I buy an item of clothing & only wear it one time it feels like Ive been cheated (think of the bridesmaids dresses you have in your closet that are collecting dust).  Versatility is essential when it comes to a great wardrobe so items that can be worn in different ways are a dream come true. I’m always on the hunt for pieces that mix and match well so I’d like to introduce to you my new favorite versatile summer item- The sleeveless Blazer.

I talked here about how much I love blazers, so a summer version is the perfect addition to my closet. I love a blazer because it adds a touch of class and sophistication to any outfit, while still not making your look too dressy. Along with its chic look it’s also the perfect way to take a dressed down look from day to night. (I’ll be doing a post on this soon). So whether you’re a student, a full time mom or career woman a blazer is a foundational piece that every woman should own.

The sleeveless blazer looks great with shorts, pants or a dress and can transform your jeans and a t shirt from super casual to classic in no time.  And if you needed one more reason to love the this blazer, you’ll be excited to know it transitions into colder seasons by simply wearing a long sleeve shirt underneath. A piece of clothing that goes from church, to work, to date night, and can be worn in all four seasons is worth its weight in fashion gold. If you are loving this piece as much as I am and want to add it to your collection,  click here for the exact one I have or check out a collection from a range of designers here.


Unsure how to wear this trend? Here's a few tips to get you started:



1.  It looks great when paired with
a)   Anything fitted- a dress, shirt, pair of pants etc.
                           Or
b)  A pair of shorts or short/mid length dress

                        *Since the sleeveless blazers are usually loose fitting and long these items                                   provide a needed contrast in fit and/or length

2.  Mix up the look with accessories like the belt I paired with the dress above. This will give a more overall hourglass shape

3.  Style this like you would a normal blazer with sleeves just avoid anything too big and “flowy” on your bottom half
