The Look: Casual Structure

Blazers with shorts has become quite the trend this season. The idea is warm weather casual with polish. Gwyneth Paltrow rocked the look at the premiere of Iron Man 2 (which I watched last night by the way). Don't be surprised if I refer to her repeatedly in this blog as she is my favorite actress and oh so classy and chic.

Blazers and shorts can be dressed up or down as these photos reveal.

My version. I have this boyfriend blazer from Target in black and white. I just got this white one and have worn the black one many times with multiple different looks through the fall and winter and now into the spring. It has become a wardrobe staple.

The black version.
