5 Red Blazers to Wear Now

What do Madam Secretary and The Duchess of Windsor have in common? 

Kate Middleton Wore a Red Blazer and Polka Dots Last Friday : Lucky Magazine.  I love her sense of style. Gotta get me a red blazer.

They both rock red blazers.  In fact isn't true red a colour that we can all rock? Or so I've heard.    And what better way then a blazer.  

I have two red blazers and wear them mostly for work. Why I don't know.  What a waste! I have to fix that and get them into my casual wear rotation. My two jackets are coincidentally both from Precis and both over 6 years old.  I have to say that when I wear them to a lunch or dinner for work I do feel good amongst the sea of black.  Now an anecdote so grab a latte.

A few years ago I went to a formal lunch for business women in London.  It was a large affair with 40 tables.  I decided to wear a black dress and red jacket.  Typically the room was a sea of black but there were dots of red as a few had done the same as I.  It came to coffee and I went to the ladies.  On walking in the restroom I found that it contained all the ladies in black dresses and red blazers.  They had been talking about it as I walked in so on my arrival, also in a red blazer and black dress, they looked at me and  all burst out in laughter. I have never made an entrance like that I can tell you. I wondered what I had on...spinach on my nose, chocolate around my eyes, confit in my hair!

Anyway let's move on. I've scoured the Internet and found a few red blazers and jackets for you. There is also Dorothy Perkins on Amazon but I can't link that as it defaults to my account.

Go buy, wear and enjoy dear Fashionista.

Once you have your red blazer then how about mixing it with a breton and patterend scarf.  This is a scarf depicting shoes.  Hey it works!

  1. It sure works! I don t own a red jacket! But I do have a red cardigan, I am going to wear it like that! Love it!

  2. I have a red jacket and I love to wear it with denim, you better get yours out and wear it this weekend! Ha! Love the story, that's some entrance!

  3. Polka dots , stripes the print scarf You mixed with the stripes all strong enough to work well with the clear solid colour . Good Job. I believe red has always been considered a power colour.

  4. I'm liking the look of the JD williams blazer. It's on my wish list!

  5. Love the red jacket! Great post!

  6. I love the double breasted jackets from JD Williams and M&S. I do have one red jacket but I'm sure I could make room for another one :-) I really like how you've styled yours with the striped top and scarf. Thanks for linking up!
