Create28 / Blazers

True story: I have avoided blazers since about the time we said good-bye to shoulder pads and the 80’s. Why? They just felt constricting to me. I felt confined and not able to move freely in a blazer or so I thought. In the last year or so, I have slowly begun to embrace blazers once again. Take note – Style Advice 101: I’m still avoiding shoulder pads and you should too, friend!

I do love to mix browns or shades of brown and black together. I have loved that color palette for like forever. This blazer with it’s pretty lining is easily remixable because the tweed pattern can pull so many colors in with it. I’ve worn black, purple, green and these cream tops underneath and each color creates a different look.

I typically wear this blazer on a cooler Texas day to add a little warmth. This was not one of those days but in the office it’s always a cooler day.

Blazers. I’m a little smitten with them. What about you? Do you wear them? Favorite color or fabric? I would love to hear what you wear in the blazer department.

Tomorrow Whitney will be back featuring cozy cable-knits. Sounds warm and comfy and total winter style.

  • I love blazers, I feel like they add instant polish to any look. This is such a great look Carrie. The neutral tones are great together, and you just look so put-together and chic. I love the fun touches you added, like the earrings and textured blouse.
  • Such a pretty look on you. Oh, how I remember those blazers with huge shoulder pads. Did anyone look good in them?
