Today’s look introduces a fabulous trend that The Double Take Girls are loving: bright colored blazers! The green one I’m sporting today was a great purchase at thelimited.com from a few weeks ago. This jacket features a mid-length silhouette, patch pockets, and contrasting black lining – which was perfect for rolling up to show off in compliment with the black and white print of my tank top. Bold jackets are a trend that’s here to stay, so don’t worry that you will be spending money on something that will be gone next season. If you are feeling a bit leery, go with a shade that is your favorite color, or perhaps one that people always say looks good on you (red, pink and cobalt blue are always good options). Once selected, you now get to mix in a host of items that are most likely already in your closet. Blouses, tunics and tank tops featuring polka dots, stripes, checks, and florals in varying color combinations are just a few ideas. While black and white combos are probably the easiest to work with, don’t be afraid to pair prints and patterns in both complimentary and contrasting color families. I think you will be pleasantly surprised with the outcome!
