Get the Look: Celeb-Inspired Spring Blazers

blazers get the look

Sometimes it’s the little touches that take your outfit from average to enviable. Celebrities have stylists to calculate all the complicated nuances of putting together a look, but we aren’t all so fortunate. Luckily, tFS has put together some celeb-inspired styling tips and tricks to help you give your look that extra oomph! This week, stars show you how work this spring’s sophisticated trend, the creamy blazer.

Tip #1: Lighten Up in Crisp White


Iman and Petra Nemcova coordinated their outfits for the Design on a Dime event at the Metropolitan Pavilion in NYC—both wore crisp white blazers, putting a ladylike spin on the celeb menswear trend. While Nemcova shone in an all-white pantsuit, Iman paired her open white blazer with unexpected black leather pants for an edgier look. Whether going for head-to-toe white or turning up the heat with leather, the white blazer is an easy way to complete a sophisticated and eye-catching look.

Tip #2: Soften an LBD with a Blush-Toned Blazer


Finding the right cover-up for an LBD can be tricky, but at the Brooklyn Artists Ball, Liv Tyler chose a pale peach blazer by Stella McCartney to pair with her black minidress and Roger Vivier sandals. The creamy pastel of the blazer takes the LBD into spring in a feminine and elegant way.

Tip #3: Get it Together with a Tailored Shorts Suit


When asked about her favorite summer party wear, British rising pop star Sunday Girl (a.k.a. Jade Williams) said, “Big, burnt orange flares, a sleeveless white shirt and a big floppy hat – very 70s. Or I’ll go for a nice tailored shorts suit.” She rocked the latter in light blue at the Esquire June Issue launch party. Her ankle socks with sandals gave the suit a summery schoolgirl vibe and the rope belt added a playful touch to the otherwise demure outfit. Look for a two-piece shorts suit or pair blazer and short separates in complementary pastels.
