A good blazer can completely transform an outfit. It can add interest, it can add polish, it can add color, it can add warmth . . . essentially, it creates endless possibility. So when you find a comfy, wash-and-wear number that fits like a glove on sale for $20, you snatch it up.
Thank goodness for H&M.
You all know how big a fan I am of print mixing -- this outfit is clearly no exception. I love how the dark stripe of the jacket picks up the deeper hue within the print of the skirt. The pieces complement one another without competing.
When working with this much color and pattern, it’s best to keep the shoes as neutral as possible.
