Blazing Blazers for Spring!



Nothing instantly adds polish to jeans and a simple tank like a blazer. Whether worn fitted or loose, blazers give a touch of sophistication to casual outfits and an extra dose of fabulousness to dressy ensembles. This spring, be playful with bright hues, but if you desire a more conservative laid-back look, stick to neutral tones. Remember a quality, well-tailored blazer is a classic piece that every BG should own because it will stand the test of time!

Do you own a blazer? Will you wear one this spring?

@Everyone - I just wanted to say thank you for all of the heartfelt comments you guys left last week. I really appreciate all of you for your concern. I'm back and things are back to normal for me now and I'm so grateful!! :-)

T said...

YAY, you're back!!! Blazers? I don't know. I haven't worn them regularly since the granny knit blazers and broches were in style. I think that was that like 4 or 5 years ago?

I might need to step it up though. It's such a classic look, I may be able to pull it off again.

Brown Girl Gumbo said...

@T - Yeah, they were really big back in 2003/2004, but they seem to be making a comeback again! LOL

Plus, I guess some things really never go out of style. :-)

I don't own a blazer because I don't think I could pull it off right; however, the blazer from Forever 21 makes me think that it may be worth me trying to.

Rebee said...

I'm not that fond of blazers. Not sure if I would wear them. Thanks though.

I live in blazers. They make my life so much easier b/c I don't need to wear a suit everyday, but I'm still maintaining a professional appearance.

I always wore these oversized sweaters and zip up's in the event that I got cold somewhere, and never realized how crazy it looked. Blazers have really grown on me. They can easily dress up a casual look in notime!
