I have been on the hunt for a chic red blazer for ages. I think it serves as such a great statement piece and since I have so many great black staple pieces I know it would just mix and match perfectly. And this is why I am still torn on this blazer as it is ALMOST exactly what I was looking for.
This piece is part of Blair Eadie’s collaboration with Halogen and I ordered half a dozen pieces from the collection when they hit Nordstrom. This blazer was one of my favorites with its polished cut, notched lapels, back vent, and slight spandex stretch. Speaking of Spandex, I love how well they pair with my Spanx Faux Leather Leggings which are an amazing 14% Spandex.
So why isn’t this blazer perfect? Of all people, my brother summed it up quite well, saying it is similar to a men’s outwear blazer that you would wear outside instead of a jacket. Yes, and I am looking for a blazer that I could wear over a dress inside to a business meeting and not sweat to death. Still, it s so cute and I love this specific hue of red which Blair has aptly named Red Chilli. Take a look at how I decided to style this red blazer:
