Not every blazer just has to be for work. Sometimes your favorite and most versatile blazer is something a little bit unexpected. This light gold blazer was originally picked up to pair over a black party dress, but it has many more lives than that.
Make a party perfect look (see left) by pairing with soft winter neutrals and adding metallic accessories like a skinny belt and a simple gold cuff (see below).
Dress up your weekend wardrobe (see right) by adding the blazer to jeans and silk shell. Wear with flats during the day or slip into some heels for date night. Swap out the jeans for a pair of winter white trousers for a second look (below right) that is evening chic.
I love to cuff my blazers so that I can add an extra pop at my wrist. Choose a bracelet that is simple since your blazer is making a statement. I chose this stranded gold cuff since it is in the same color palette as the blazer & is less than two inches wide.
Just because this blazer is not a traditional work piece does not mean it cannot be worn for work. Pair with a sleek skirt and a silk shell for an easy and polished three piece "suit." And the best part of wearing a blazer? Being able to take it off and give your outfit a whole new look.
One last party perfect idea: wear a black dress with a gold belt worn at the waist and layer with the gold blazer as an alternative to a cardigan or pashmina.
