Someone smart once said: We all need a little structure in our lives. What she really meant was a structured blazer or structured blazer dress, whichever is more your thing. We personally find structured blazer dresses extremely versatile and, by the time you are done reading this blog post, you will be on the same page as us.
It’s no secret that blazers have been one of the biggest trends of spring 2019. Considering we live in Chicago, we got to bring this trend with us into summer as well. Maybe that was the only reason we weren’t hating on the 60-70 degree weather that lasted until July.
If you’ve ever browsed our Instagram feed, you likely noticed that blazers take the spotlight when it comes to staple pieces in our closet. They are the most versatile pieces a girl can own since they make a great foundation for many kinds of outfits: meetings, dates, vacation looks, special events, you name it.
The only decision you need to make is dressing your look up or down. Sometimes just switching shoes makes that difference, but we like to go all in. Styling this particular beige blazer dress has been part of our #howtostyle series on Instagram. Today we are bringing all those outfits to the blog, along with the pieces you can shop for to recreate those looks.
