See the top five ways to wear one of fall's top fashion trends: the blazer. The Lilly Pulitzer blazer is a staple for any wardrobe. Learn the ways to wear it now and wear it wow.
Good morning Lilly Lovers! The Pelican Girls hope you all had a wonderful weekend and enjoyed summer's last, official, blast. Lucky for all of us, the Fall Lilly Pulitzer collection offers a ton of transitional pieces that wear WOW now and later.
A beautiful blazer is the perfect piece to pair with pretty much anything. It's a classic that you'll wear for years to come but also on trend with gorgeous colors and a fabulous fit and fabric.
Today's blog will show you the top five ways to wear the blazer.
1. The blazer is a class-act for cocktails.
A beauty of a blazer in a pretty pop of color takes this piece everywhere except the BOREDroom. From work to play, it makes every hour a happy hour. Put it over the Hazel Dress $208) to go from day to night. Add a little bling and tuck a clutch under your arm and you're ready for fun.
2. Let's hear it for the boys--boyfriend styling that is!
Girls just want to have fun, and look fabulous, so don't be afraid to borrow some style inspiration from the boys. Button up a cardigan and add on colored denim for schoolboy style with a feminine edge that will take you straight to the top of the class.
3. Basics are tried and true, and in some cases blue, but basic doesn't have to mean boring.
A blazer with a pretty printed top is a beautiful, basic look. At The Pink Pelican, we love the Lilly Pulitzer Porter Top ($88). Pair with the Lilly Pulitzer Jet Set Trouser ($169) or denim for a flattering, timeless outfit.
4. Make short work of fall fashion.
Shorts aren't just for summer days or when you head out to play. Polished shorts are a simple way to make short work of fall fashion. The Lilly Pulitzer Sloane Shorts ($88) are fall's favorite way to fall in love. Wear them now and layer them later. The Pelican Girls love the look with the blazer, the shorts and the Lilly Pulitzer Hart Top ($58).
5. Be a scene stealer when you take in dinner and a show.
Talk about a perfect pair that will make you want to kick up your heels. It doesn't get much better than a blazer and a dress. Coordinate colors by choosing a blazer in a hue from your dress for a look that's polished but still ooh la la Lilly. The Pelican Girls have fallen for the Lilly Pulitzer Allaire Dress ($188). The Lilly Pulitzer Davie Dress ($168) is dying to be paired with a colored blazer while the Lilly Pulitzer Laney Dress ($138) layers lovely as well.
There you have it; the top five ways to wear fall's fashionable, and beautiful, blazer. How will you wear your blazer?
