KEEP IT CASUAL

This blazer is perfect for one of those early March mornings where it’s a little too chilly for a cute sleeveless top or dress, but you still want a pop of springtime glam. The nautical stripes are super on-trend, so make them the focal piece of your look by pairing it with a white top with minimal (but still fun!) details. We love this one from Express, especially paired with a medium wash ripped jean. The unexpected combo of the distressed denim with a put-together blazer makes for a striking daytime outfit! You could also make the look even more casual by rolling up the sleeves of your blazer, and pair it with some strappy sandals or neutral wedges. Add a dainty necklace to compliment the lower neck of the top and toss some beach waves in your hair to add some texture to your look.

We also really love the idea of adding a pop of color back into the blue and white look with a small cross body bag. Don’t shy away from red, either - we love this one from Nordstrom! Not only would it be the perfect statement piece to complete your look, but it’s the color of the summer, too!


DRESS IT UP

Love the last look, but can’t wear jeans to the office? There’s tons of other ways to style this adorable piece professionally! If you’d like to keep it easy and effortless, a white dress is the perfect go-to to pair with this blazer. Shift dresses are so in right now, and they’re perfect for office wear because they’re modest but still fashionable. This one from Lulu’s would be the perfect piece to let your fun new blazer be the focus of your look, and it’s easy to style with just a pair of nude pumps and some tights.

Another great option would be to play up the nautical look and feel of the blazer a little more by pairing it with a pair of navy pixie pants. Try different textured tops underneath for a twist, like a white satin blouse. Pull your hair back into a full, voluminous ponytail of curls and add a simple pair of nude heels or flats to keep it professional for an adorable office chic look!
