Sometimes, all it takes is one statement piece to spice up your tried-and-true summer outfit. Case in point: Chrissy Teigen’s teal silk blazer. By keeping the rest of her look simple, the designer proved just how easy it can be to wear an unexpected pop of color while still looking low-key.
Teigen was spotted with her oldest daughter, Luna, in downtown New York City on June 23. The outing was the perfect break from a work-filled weekend on the East Coast. That same day, the mother-of-two was interviewed by her real-life best friend and hair stylist Jen Atkin at POPSUGAR’s Play/Ground conference. The duo discussed the model’s outspoken social media presence and the importance of remaining authentic. Luna even made a surprise appearance at one point for bonus cuteness points.
While Teigen wore a frilly lavender dress for the event, she looked every part a stylish mom on-the-go during her time off. Never one to shy away from a bold color, the host of Lip Sync Battle styled her blazer with distressed light-wash jeans, a white tank top, and PVC pointed-toe stilettos. A simple beauty look rounded out the entire outfit. Her hair was styled in its perfectly undone natural texture, while her makeup was kept simple and bronzed. Luna looked equally adorable in her pale yellow dress and matching hair bows.
Think of silk blazers as the ideal addition to your outfit for summer. They’re lightweight enough to keep you cool during the warmer days, but are still perfect for combatting chilly office air conditioning. Take a page out of Teigen’s style playbook and pick an option in a brighter color or more bold print for when you want to add a little something to an otherwise monotone outfit.
Teigen’s pick was a more chilled-out version of the power-suiting trend that has been popular in past seasons. Turns out, she’s not the only one who’s a fan of the trend. Oversized suits were seen on the Spring/Summer 2019 runways at shows like Tibi and Gabriela Hearst in pastel shades of yellow and pink. Plus, designers like Cushnie and Salvatore Ferragamo featured full silk and satin suits in a variety of jewel tones on their runways.
Style luxe blazers with a sheer blouse and dark trousers to nighttime events, or with white shorts during the day. Lighter, cream-colored, options look ideal when worn over white jeans. Plus, if you’ve grown tired of wearing the same floral number to every wedding or party on your calendar, try opting for a full suit in a shimmery fabric — you’ll still look polished, but with a touch of edge.
