What the Wore Wednesday: Three-Quarter Floral Blazer…this post features a feminine floral jacket that I actually wore in another post last summer. But because this cool and versatile piece works so well with various skirts and bottoms in my spring and summer wardrobe, I thought it was worth featuring once again.
This blazer’s floral pattern looks so breezy for summer, and three-quarter sleeves look and feel cooler for the warmer seasons. And for some reason, I’ve always thought that three-quarter sleeves were more flattering on me. A lot of my sweaters and tops are also three-quarter length.
Everything stays cool with just a basic cotton t-shirt underneath the blazer. To keep the outfit pretty and stylish, I added a “statement” necklace, which I think looks just right with the bright pattern of the blazer.
I think pearls or a big chuncky gold necklace would look great too.
This jacket, by Candie’s, actually does not have a button or snap closure, so I keep it closed with a safety pin…please don’t judge…I think the jacket, when cinched closed, is much more flattering from the front…
…and from the back.
This three-quarter floral jacket looks lovely with a variety of colors. In my previous post featuring this jacket, I wore it with a black skirt. It also looks fab with jeans!
