5 Under $50: Bright Blazers

The black boyfriend blazer that's dominated celebrity wardrobes for the past couple of season seems to be on the wane, making way for a new staple: The bright blazer. Color is everywhere, from the spring 2012 runways at Gucci (above from left) and DKNY to on-trend ladies like Catt Sadler, E! News correspondent, Maria Menounos and Kim Kardashian (all in blazers by Naven). Ready to layer on some delicious color? Here are five super affordable blazers to get you started.

1. Forever 21 Exclusive Design Collection Blazer $29.80

2. Charlotte Russe Cobalt Blazer $36.99

3. Forever 21 Long Collar Blazer $29.80

4. Kensie Flower Brooch Blazer $49.99

5. Forever 21 Coral Blazer $29.80

Note: I realize this post is very Forever 21-heavy but I couldn't find many brightly colored blazers anywhere else. Leave a comment if you've seen some!

love these blazers, I really need pink in my life.

Desperately want a green blazer and pink blazer. I feel like I could do so much with them.

I saw some nice-looking, very bright blazers (hot pink, orange and red) last week at H&M. I think they were $20 to $35, depending on the exact style.

^^ same as Nikki! I picked up a fuchsia boyfriend-style blazer from H&M a couple of weeks ago.. using their 20% off coupon! It's originally priced at $24.95

I so want one and F21 is perfect place to splurge on this! I wouldn't want to spend a bunch on such a trendy item. Now what color... I want neon yellow, tangerine and pink!

BB, maybe a post with tips on how to style bright blazers? Mine is orange, and is challenging me a bit...
