It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of the blazer. In fact, it’s one of my favorite pieces to finish off a look. It’s great with jeans, over a dress, and even just paired with leggings. I usually skip the blazer once it gets warm out. But now with so many linen blazer options happening, I’m taking this closet staple from fall and winter into spring and summer.
How To Wear An Oversized Linen Blazer For Spring
With Denim Shorts
When I first grabbed this pale yellow linen blazer from Madewell, I knew exactly how I’d style it. For spring and summer, I’m all about the denim shorts. So it was a no-brainer that these two would be paired together.
I love the contrast of the dark denim with the light yellow. I also think any linen blazer would be great with a pair of white denim shorts for spring and summer. The two are just meant to go together!
My Favorite Denim Shorts
Pair With A Crop Top
When it comes to wearing an oversized blazer or any third piece like that, I like to keep the piece underneath fitted and with an open neckline. For me, I think this is just more flattering on my body. If I was wearing a loose crew neck tee with this, it would just feel like a whole lot of fabric and my body would get lost in it all.
To avoid feeling swallowed up by an oversized blazer, always keep the pieces underneath more fitted. And make sure you are showing a bit of skin around the neck. I opted for a little crochet knit crop tank. Just a sliver of midriff is showing with my high-waisted shorts. And the neckline is square and open.
Best Tops To Pair With An Oversized Linen Blazer
Pair With A Dress
One thing I have been doing a lot more lately is pairing a linen blazer over my dresses for spring and summer. Instead of my beloved denim jacket, this just feels a tad more trendy and updated.
This trick works particularly well with more slim-fitting dresses. Think slip dresses that are slinky, or fitted cotton dresses. A tiered full dress may feel a little much with an oversized blazer. Instead, I’d try a cropped blazer or a cropped denim jacket.
