Everyone from Prada to Prabal Gurung and Balmain to Derek Lam showed printed jackets in their fall collections, often worn with coordinating pants or equally printed pairings. Though we loved the head-to-toe prints that stayed strong from spring’s trends, we know that’s just one of the lovely ways to wear a patterned jacket- one of our must-have pieces for this season. So to indulge your fashionable side and provide outfit options for your printed blazer, we’ve found the four pieces we love most with this enviable floral Topshop jacket.
1. The Top-To-Toe: Just like on the runway at Prada, sometimes pattern play is most fun when done in excess. That’s why we think the most risk-taking fashionistas will love this Topshop blazer and coordinating pants. Balance the look with a black or solid bright hued blouse, a hard-hitting statement necklace, sleek hair and natural makeup.
2. The Leather Theory: Hard meets soft in this look, as you pair your printed blazer with bad girl leather in the form of Vanessa Bruno Athe leather pants. Inky black leather is one trend we aren’t going to tire of, especially when it’s girlied up with a soft white tee and printed jacket.
3. Maxi Style: The easiest way to go from day to evening in late summer is by wearing a slim tangerine French Connection maxi dress alone by day and topped with our Topshop jacket for night. Add a top knot and red lips for an attitude-heavy yet light on the pocketbook look.
4. Short Stop: The combination of a structured printed blazer, pretty textured white shorts and towering wedges makes for one sexy, fashion forward look complemented by the remnants of your summer-tanned gams. Tuck a sheer bold-hued blouse into these Marni shorts, step outside, and you may just end up on a street style blog.
