Upon my arrival in Paris, thanks to all the incredibly chic French women, I immediately noticed all the wardrobe essentials I had somehow been living without. All the Parisiennes strolling the streets were, of course, clad in the latest Paris summer trends. I realized my summer simply would not be completely chic without the perfect blazer and pair of booties so effortlessly donned by all these French women.
While a blazer might not be the most obvious choice for summer, it can be that missing piece of any outfit. A blazer can class up or dress up any ensemble, whether it includes pants or a dress. The blazer also goes seamlessly from day to night, depending just on the attire underneath. This season is also seeing blazers in bold new hues, perfect for injecting a pop of color into any outfit. Simply throw on all black with a bold blazer, and you’re already looking Parisian chic. In addition to their daring hues, blazers are popping up with sequin detail and in creative, unexpected materials.
My personal favorite, which I came across at Maje, was a black tuxedo-style blazer with a satin collar and navy blue sequin sleeves, not to mention that it also came in cream with gold sleeves. It was stunning and the perfect piece for any nighttime adventure in the City of Light.
