Given the fact that the striped trend is back, it has now been spotted on blazers in such an elegant way.
The stripes dominated international runways, not this season: remembering the last few seasons, with Givenchy’s Summer 2016 and Aquilano Rimondi’s collections. The pattern is always rescued by designers on the runways, gaining immediate effect on fashionistas street styles.
During Paris fashion week, Camila Coelho chose a structured Givenchy model to soften the sensuality of the bralette lingerie she wore under it. In addition, it was responsible for bringing chic status to the look with leather pants by Gloria Coelho and braided shoes by Louis Vuitton.
On the runways, the style also gained other versions besides the black and white. Marc Jacobs, for example, went for navy blue to bring a chic vibe to his Hollywood collection for Summer 2016. Trussardi, proposed the blue metalic monochrome version.
While Paul Joe and Costume National brought utilitarian versions, exploring the more functional side of fashion, the British, Tod’s, went for more pliable models with embroidery details.
Giorgio Armani brought all expertise in tailoring with ultra feminine light stripes shades to his Emporio Armani, with the intention of emphasizing a cool and genderless silhouette.
In regions of Brazil where the climate is more amenable, the blazer is a great option to bring more sophistication and elegance to any occasion. A few years ago, tailored pieces were very connected to the workwear, today it serves as inspiration which can be reinvented each season.
My choice is to go for styles where the sleeves are shortened and in lurex, responsible for bringing a point of color to the piece. For my first look, it maintains perfect harmony with the burgundy blouse and navy blue flare pants.
The second look serves as a tip: since this is a bold piece, let it be the protagonist of the look and match it with more basic pieces such as this black dress that I chose.
It is incredible how such a traditional piece can earn look cool and modern with a new print.
