1. The Desk-to-Day Blazer

Boyfriend Oversized Blazer

What’s a better feeling than knowing that you always have a multi-occasion blazer on hand? While is an oversized silhouette, Vince Boyfriend Blazer is done in a drapey, flowy and lightweight fabric, and follows you from desk to after-hour with ease. Throw it on over a t-shirt or a tank (check out our Vince Ribbed Sleeveless Turtleneck and the Cami NYC Silk Charmeuse) and denim shorts to instantly elevate a casual summer look. 

2. The Pastel Dream Blazer

While white blazers help you achieve the crisp and fresh look, pastel-coloured blazers soften and add a subtle, ethereal feel to any outfit. Joie Kierra Blazer from our closet is a dresst member favourite as it has that “just-right” fit. Wear it over the Club Monaco Kora Cami and pair this with mules or heels to get that instant urban, effortless-chic look.
