Blazers has always been a wardrobe essential. With the right fit, a good blazer can instantly dress up jeans, skirts, the LBDs, shorts and even leggings. Although a basic black blazer is simply one of the most versatile item and can go with virtually everything…a cheerfully bright blazer can do the same and can bring instant glam into your wardrobe.

Don’t be fool by the bright pink color of this blazer. With the right outfit you can take this from playtime to business hours….but as you can see I’m all about playtime these days, so mixing this vibrant structured blazer with blue floral shorts and adding a splash of leopard completed the fun summertime vibe I was going for. Hey, living in the Bay Area, the weather is quite unpredictable (not to mention bi-polar) so I need to take full advantage of all the summertime outfits while I can :)
In addition to pink, here are my summer’s favorite hues for blazers. Would you wear any of these and if so, which is your favorite?
Zara yellow blazer, J. Crew green blazer,
Topshop coral ponte boyfriend blazer, ASOS purple peplum blazer $58
Thanks for stopping by the blog loves! TGIF and have a wonderful weekend! xo
Blazers are definitely a staple in my closet. I have one in every color-besides pink-go figure. Love how you played with the color by adding different prints-so sassy!
I’m in love with that Topshop blazer. I’ve seen it several times now, and love it that much more every time.
Hello! Popping over from Marion’s site, and so glad to have found you! All I can say is SAAAASSSY!!!! Oh, and I love, love, love it!!!! Now looking forward to more great outfits!
I love the cut of your hot pink blazer! It’s probably why I’d totally wear that yellow Zara blazer you posted too. Great look, hun. The floral print with the leopard is perfect for playtime :)
Um wow…the color of that blazer is absolutely fabulous. I love how pink it is! And those shorts are absolutely amazing. I could never pull them off but you do it so well! Love this whole look together!
Love this look! That pink blazer looks amazing with that pretty blue printed shorts! Found you at Marionberry and loving your blog! Following on Facebook!

What a gorgeous pop of colout! I love the complementing nail varnish – beautiful! <3
I just accidentally stumbled across your blog, and am so glad I did~ loved looking through your outfit posts you are so pretty! I love the neon blazer- looking for one right now in that exact color!!!!
I love your very sunny disposition….any outfit would look great on you KT!!!!!
P.P.S. And yes, those were totally the leather shorts I was wearing during that one hot day in SF! Leather short shorts + hot leather seats = one no go, oops. Lol, lesson learned!
You look amazing yet again! I really enjoy the juxtaposition between the classic structure of the blazer and the extremely bright color! And how the hot pink colorblocks the royal blue printed shorts in a way that’s way too perfect. Those leopard slippers are the pièce de résistance to the outfit–that small hint of leopard is just too much fun!
P.S. Vince says “I think KT has amazing style! And female swag.” :)
You always look flawless. Love the blazer and those Alexander wang sandals. Bummer they are sold ou.
I really love your use of bright colors. You pulled together a really fun look! xo, Abbey

Thanks Sharon and you should do the same when you come to SF! :)
Gorgeous! I absolutely love the blazer. What a great color! I’m starting to obsess over colored blazers especially pastels nowadays. You definitely pulled off the shorts. You look great. I could never pull that off. You always make everything look like a magazine editorial, and I love it! :)
Wow I love this outfit. Such a great sport casual ensemble. The blazer is a fabulous color.
Love the pink blazer with blue printed shorts :) Adds so much fun and personality to your outfit…

You have some killer legs, girl! I love how you styled the pink blazer. I have a serious obsession with blazers (I have over 25 hanging in my closet…) My friend recently asked me to do a post on how to style them 3 different ways and I chose my pink blazer too! I put together a work, lunch/errands, and a night out outfit. The post is here: http://www.thebaloneybug.com/2012/05/28/guest-post-my-favorite-closet-staple-worn-3-ways-by-really-renata/
