linen shorts, black suit blazer

Do you like to incorporate your suits and blazers into a casual weekend wear? Since I am a big fan of blazers, I look for creative ways to wear those jackets any chance I get. Adding a casual fabric, like these linen shorts create a contrast with the black blazer that actually works. I like rolling up the sleeves on my jackets for an effortless and modern look.

A classic black blazer is one of the most versatile pieces everyone should own. It easily transitions from day-to-night and can be paired with everything from jeans and a t-shirt to a more sophisticated evening ensemble. I like to add my blazers to a fancy dress I have not worn in a while for a less formal, casual night out look.

    Love this twist of a classic suit. Maybe with tights this can be something perfect to wear at work too. Love it!

    I love that you paired your blazer with green shorts. It’s the perfect amount of pop that makes the outfit fun, but still classic. Such a wonderful look!
