A beige fitted blazer is a great alternative to your usual black staples during the warmer months. Aside from keeping you cool, the lighter shade goes better with a summer palette. Take this beige blazer by H&M ($59.95). The cropped, double-breasted topper is perfect for switching up silhouettes - girls with shorter gams rejoice, an abbreviated cut brings the eye upwards to lengthen the leg - and the color is just the neutral to go with a multitude of lighter looks. With those flattering ideas in mind, here are five ways to rock the piece.

Outfit #1 (above):
A beige blazer works well with pale hues. If you're going for a lighter-toned look, opt for brown accessories instead of black which can be a sharp contrast.
