9 to 5 Style- Patterned Blazers

Welcome to 9 to 5 Style! The third  Monday of every month Jennie of A Pocketful of Polka Dots and I will showcase a theme featuring our individual takes on a professional look. Our aim is to inspire and show professional style does not have to mean boring and without personality. We hope you enjoy our 9 to 5 Style!

Do printed or patterned blazers intimidate you? Are you afraid you will look a little clownish if you wear one to work? This month Jennie and I are showing you how to wear patterned blazers to work.

I chose to style my gingham blazer, but the tips I’m going to share can apply to floral, striped, or any other patterned blazers.

I last shared this blazer in a winter outfit and mused over it being a winter or summer piece. I definitely swung back to summer by pairing it with white pants and a bright top. One of the easiest ways to wear a printed blazer to work is to stick with the same color family when pairing it with other pieces. In this case, that’s black or white. If your printed blazer has other colors, pull a predominant color and work with it. You might even want to wear your printed blazer over a sheath dress in a matching color. The sheath will provide a slimming column of color, while the printed blazer will provide a little contrast.

Keep things simple. Your patterned blazer will be your statement piece and there’s not much need for another statement piece when wearing such an item to the office. I accessorized with fairly simple and delicate jewelry.

Don’t limit your office wear to patterned or printed blouses. Go a little bolder with patterned blazers.
