For me, blazers and jackets are all about versatility. I want the same posh blazer that I wear to the office to be equally as chic at night and on the weekend. That’s one of the reasons I fell for this Nine West jacket. Its unexpected shoulder detail and perfectly cropped cut make it a fab topper for a day at work or a night on the town. Here’s a look at how I styled it for cocktails with the girls.

The Dress & Jacket

You can’t go wrong with an embroidered dress for spring. Embroidery on denim, shoes, pants and tops is back in all its colorful glory — and this Nicole Miller sheath dress is a fabulous interpretation of the trend. Want to break up the all-over pattern? Consider adding a belt for a fun “extra.” But perhaps it’s the addition of this it-girl jacket that is the best way to add a little something fun to the look. I love the ruffled shoulder detail — so on trend for spring and summer — and the slightly boxy shape. Just as cool when paired with casual denim or workday trousers or a pencil skirt, this blazer is the new most versatile piece in your spring closet.

The Accessories

It’s spring — so it’s all about adding color to make your looks pop! And I didn’t shy away from vivid hues for this eclectic dress. Duo-tone hoop earrings and a beaded bracelet add a hint of metallic, while a polished pebble Coach satchel brings a red-haute hue to the mix. But perhaps my favorite color wow are the suede turquoise Nine West pumps, which perfectly complement the rich tones of the dress and add an unexpected shoe hue. Ooh la la!

A versatile blazer is a must-have for fashionistas this spring, and this Nine West topper is a terrific option for day-to-night ease. How will you style it?
