Trend Alert: Revamped blazers and platform wedgesÂ for the summer!
Attention all Makeover Mommas: summer is the time to flaunt beautiful legs, healthy skin and bronze arms (in case you didn’t know this). But it can be tempting to cover up and wear your fall fashion, instead of showcasing your post-partum body to the world. Luckily, the boyfriend blazers creates the perfect bridge between your scorching pea coat and show-too-much tank top. Instead of the basic military style blazer or basic black blazer to which we’re accustomed, the revamped blazer has been cropped with shorter sleeves. Between the mixture ofÂ intricate bead work, sequins and eye-popping prints, summertime blazers can be worn all year long. Here’s a sneak peek:
This beautiful gold and black blazer is not only cropped but the sleeves are elegantly pulled up (ideal for hot days). It can be worn many ways for busy women, whileÂ transferringÂ from day to night in a flash. For days when you’re attending events with your family, try pairing it with cigarettes jeans (skinny jeans that stop above the ankle), flats (or gladiator sandals), an oversize tank top, a statement necklace andÂ an oversized clutch. Mix things up on those rare nights you get time with the girls, by choosing a LBD (little black dress) with platform wedges, statement jewlery, and once again the oversized clutch.
Just like the blazer, a classic platform wedge is all the rage this summer. Â Want suggestions that fit your budget?
