I love summer and I love hot weather but going from this digusting humidity to the suffocating subways to the ice cold air conditioning and back again is crushing me! So, I needed an outfit to beat the horrendous heat in New York but that would be easily layered for my office. Cue a super cute blazer and shorts outfit.

This bright red Theory blazer is a summer staple I’ve had for years and forgot about. It goes perfectly with the pops of red in the shorts without being too match-y and would keep me warm in my office’s freezing air conditioning.
Blazer And Shorts Outfit Style Tips:
- You can absolutely rock a blazer and shorts outfit well into fall! Pair with tights and thigh-high boots.
- You can also take the principles of this outfit and apply it to long or short skirts or printed flowy pants.
- To recreate this outfit yourself, pick which item will have your pattern – either the shorts or the blazer. Then pair with the other item in a solid color from the patterned item. For example, I’m picking up the red-orange color in the shorts to pair with my solid red-orange blazer, but I could have just as easily paired these shorts with a blue or yellow solid blazer.
- Add a white cami and a statement necklace, and you’re ready to go!
