The blazer has come a long way from its traditional (and stuffy?) professional roots, and is now a casual-wear staple that serves to help modern fashionistas like us easily transition from day to night, work to happy hour, and beyond. It's survived many updates, from the boyfriend style to the short and cropped tuxedo jacket, and this season it's going through a new, spring-festive transformation: florals! A floral blazer is the perfect transition piece for the month ahead, as it instantly brightens up your winter wardrobe in a way that's cheery but won't leave you chilly, and it can still take you through the later summer months for those cooler sumer nights. I adore this Pim + Larkin Blazer from Piperlime – its lightweight feel, energetic print, and laid-back fit make it a great layering piece for the gal who loves to mix prints and textures. For something with a little more of a tropical vibe, this Alice + Olivia blazer doesn't miss a beat! Wear it with a solid dress or a basic tank and jeans to make sure it doesn't have to fight for the spotlight! And if you're looking for a fanciful update to your traditional denim jacket, this floral denim blazer from Free People is cute and cropped – perfect for layering over a simple sundress for instant spring appeal!
