Texas summers are impossibly hot and while adding another layer to your outfit may seem unimaginable, the blazer still makes its way in the summer.

It's crazy to think that blazers are still part of a summer wardrobe. But, as Texans, we keep it freezing inside restaurants and offices.

The blazer justifies our indoor apparel: It pulls together a professional look on a sleeveless tank that wouldn't work otherwise, a sleeveless dress that needs a little something and color denim you've been trying to work to make a complete outfit. The blazer does all that.

With the sleeveless dress you've been thinking about wearing to the office or out on a date, the blazer gives it a professional look while your sleeveless dress keeps it playful and flirty. Look for a colorful frock to put under a white blazer. White is clean and keeps any fun color professional. Pair it with a fun necklace that brings charm and a glam spin to your outfit.

If going for a lunch meeting or out on the town, wandering in and out of shops or a spending the day at the mall, you want to keep it casual and simple. A blazer looks sensational over a button up and shorts.

Paired together on model Hillary Crawford, the look is amazing for a day out on the town as she sits at an outdoor café, taking a break from shopping. Paired with a fun red clutch and headband to pull out the red nautical stripes in her shorts, this look is amazing when paired with a blazer, giving it a sleek touch.

Wear your blazer with these three easy variations and you've got one of the summer's hottest looks.
