Today’s Coveted Working Look: Tipped Blazer

by Anne Dreshfield | February 6th, 2013   

On blustery, early spring day, I try to reach for bright colored pieces that will still make me warm. Often enough, that means I head into my closet looking for bright blazers. Luckily for me, those are coming out in droves in the stores right now! I was perusing Banana Republic’s site and fell in love with the Tipped Blazer in “Perfect Gold.” What a bright pop of color!

The Tipped Blazer can be styled in a variety of ways: casual, as above, with a chic striped top and dark jeans, or dressed up, as a pop of color with your usual dark pencil skirt or trousers. A blend of cotton and rayon, the jacket is perfectly light for everyday wear and will take you from season to season. Wondering how to fit this gem into your work wardrobe? Don’t be afraid to pair it with a classic top, as Banana Republic did above, or pair it with a more playful color, like magenta, to really brighten up your day.

How would you style the lovely Tipped Blazer? I love the way they’ve rolled up the sleeves for a more casual look, allowing a bit of stripes to peek through! I might just have to replace sunshine with this sunny blazer…until summer, that is!
