One Blazer, Four Ways

Pair it with a form-fitting frock for a dressy, feminine look. Accentuate the waist by cinching with a belt and accessorize with a sleek clutch and ankle-strap heels.

Don't be afraid to add a punchy hue with the classic jacket. Temper the brightness with a matching pant and add a pair of pointed-toe shoes and a fun bag.

Mix prints by teaming the striped blazer with a boho blouse of a similar color family. A pencil skirt will further add polish to the floaty silhouette.

For casual Friday choose a vintage-wash flared jean and a charming lace top with frilly details. Add a pop of color with a neckscarf and finish it off with streamlined nude suede pumps.
