While you may be wary of pairing orange and black together for fear of looking like a Halloween mishap, after spotting Gwen Stefani's latest look, dare to rock the seasonal duo, too. While running errands in LA over the weekend, the singer balanced a bold orange blazer and tuxedo trousers with a basic black top, black leather ankle boots, and a white Chanel tote, then accessorized with blackout shades, a few silver accessories, and her signature punchy lipstick. Re-create Gwen's festive look by working an orange blazer with a black top, tuxedo pants or jeans, and ankle boots for a shopping date with the girls or test-drive the color combo for the office by styling this orange silk Equipment blouse ($198) with this paneled tweed Express pencil skirt ($70) and black pumps.
Over Easter weekend, Jessica Alba wore not one, not two, but three colorful outfits in LA consisting of a coral blazer, floral maxi dress, and colored blue skinny jeans. Her coral blazer topped a '70s-glam look, she made her floral Karen Zambos maxi way more fresh via a Genetic denim vest, and the actress continued her colored-jeans streak via soft blue jeans. Step inside to get a closer look at Jessica's Easter-weekend looks and to shop similar pieces. Then be sure to see what all your favorite stars did for Easter.
As important as it is to have a black or navy blazer in your arsenal, mixing it up with a pop of color is definitely encouraged. Fab reader Fashion du Jour achieved this with a bright red blazer — and it looks perfectly polished. Black jeans, ankle boots, and a gray tee help keep the rest of the outfit toned down and the focus completely on this lady in red.
Congrats to Fashion du Jour!

Like the ice cream, sorbet blazers are sweet, sticky, and just right for Summer. Notice how these colorful blazers make a crisp statement without going overboard. The trick to pulling this off is pairing it with a simple bottom and minimal accessories. Look to sizzling hot Ciara for inspiration. The budding stylista paired her pink blazer with a white tee, blue jeans, and hoops for a refreshing yet refined look. Delish.
