THE 3-WAY: Her summer blazer

by Paul Julch in


Summer Blazer Week continues - and now, something for her.  Third pieces (like cardigans and blazers) are just as important for women as for men, especially in summer - they finish off simple outfits, keep away the chill of the air conditioning, and provide coverage over skin-baring silhouettes.  Just be sure to grab a blazer that's appropriate to the season - in an easy breezy linen, a cool cotton or breatheable silk.

Check out this great striped blazer from J Crew, and three ways you can make it work for you this summer.

KEEP IT SERIOUS

Have a body-conscious summer dress that you'd love to wear to the office, but not sure if it's appropriate?  A blazer can take it from sexy to serious, and low key accessories keep it professional.
