Jane's other new blazer is a little less traditional- a boyfriend style in a bright, vibrant color. However, that doesn't mean that it can't easily be integrated into a more traditional wardrobe. The base layers in these outfits are the same as the ones shown in yesterday's black blazer post, but the overall effect is quite different.
A boyfriend style jacket is defined by the longer length and, often, a straight fit. This means that you have to be aware of the proportions you are creating. Defining your waist, either with a belt, a tightly fitting top or by buttoning the jacket, can help elongate your legs instead of your torso.
This jacket is more casual and fun than the short, black one and as a result gives these looks a fresher, trendier vibe. I have already discussed the two outfits on the right in great detail here, so I will instead concentrate on the dressy look to the right. With such a focal blazer, I don't like to add in many other eye-popping elements. The base pieces are both dark and even though the skirt is a colored lace, it does not compete with the jacket for attention. Make sure that your eyes are not pulled in multiple directions, because the most important part of the outfit is you, not your clothes.
Dark colors and neutrals are not the only ways to wear this statement jacket. A patterned shirt in the same color is a fun way to layer. I found this ruffled bird pattern top in the back of Jane's closet which was a near perfect match! Chances are if you find a color you are drawn too, you have already bought something in it previously. This makes for fun and unexpected pairings.
Since the top is very bright and busy, I felt that it was important to ground the outfit with a neutral. I paired it here with a dark brown skirt, but in the warmer months, this could just as easily be done with white or khaki on the bottom. A bright color can be just as practical in your wardrobe as a neutral as long as you are thoughtful about how you are wearing it!
