Which look would you rock if you wore a neon blazer?
So for the first look (above left) I decided to use the blazer at the outstanding statement piece and paired it with your typical jeans and a white tee. To spice it up I added leopard print pumps so that the outfit isn't all solids with no patterns, for jewelry we kept it simple with my bow earrings, my Equality Bracelet, and a crytal chain necklace from Forever 21.
For the second look (above right) I decided to be a little bit more risky and instead of a toned outfit with neautral colors to compliment the blazer, I vamped it all the way up! Bright colors compliment each other so with a royal/electric blue skirt the blazer really stood out even more, the shirt honestly was pure luck, featuring the blue AND the neon yellow tones it fit in perfectly, (its old from Forever 21) and to keep the ensemble season appropriate I added traditional black tights from Wal-Mart. Instead of heels, since everything is already screaming "LOOK AT ME!" I choose my studded Steve Madden Boots, from Vegas, to keep the edge of the outfit, but prevent it from being TOO va-va-voom.

So I just showed you my Day and Night versions of how I would style this blazer, but if you don't believe me as to how popular this blazer is, check out some of my favorite celebrities and fashion bloggers with the very blazer this whole post was focused around.**
First, the Zara Tweed Jacket (the more expensive version of Mr.Blazer):
Now let's take a look at that other blazer we all know and love: The Zara Zippered Blazer
PHEW! That was a long post I know! But thanks for sticking around through it all, I hope you enjoyed reading about me and my crazy moments......pretending like blazers are people! I like to keep you all on your toes and try approaching fashion in new ways.
Style is so much more than just looking cute, it's creativity, expression, and confidence. Sometimes the world's greatest finds, and hiding in the middle of a store, where you can't see them. Never be afraid to rock something BOLD & BRIGHT people may be blinded by your neon jacket, but at least they're looking! If they hate it so be it, because remember, you're the one brave enough to rock something new! Stay fabulous and fashionable!
