Today’s Coveted Working Look: Pique Academy Blazer

What is it about the slightest variation in detail that can entirely refresh a wardrobe staple? I’ve been absolutely loving all of the updated blazers out in stores now, from floral designs, to inspiring new cuts, and lightweight fabrics to keep you cool in the heat. It can be easy to get caught up in the trendy details of a revamped necessity, but I like to keep work clothes fairly simple so they’ll work for a variety of situations and be in style longer. Certain pieces, like Gap‘s Pique Academy Blazer, fits the bill perfectly:

With sharp tailoring, small details like white piping and buttons, and in a refreshing shade of coral, Gap‘s Pique Academy Blazer is a fresh take on the more traditional academy blazer. Personally, I think this update is easier to wear and while last longer in your closet than other school-inspired fashion pieces (letterman jackets, I’m looking at you!). Pair this chic blazer with a gray pencil skirt, black trousers, white slacks, or anything else that makes the coral pop — and you’ll be wearing this piece all spring and summer!
