How to Wear a Blazer

Blazers are a woman’s best friend, right? Nevertheless, blazers always make an appearance on the runways no matter what season is at play. For that reason, they are one of my favorite staples! I love that you can wear them year-round. All things considered, when it comes to quick and easy ways to enhance your looks, adding in a blazer is about as effortless as it gets! I love pairing blazers with tee shirts, leather pants, dresses, a pair of bike shorts- there are so many possibilities!  Since Fall is the perfect time for throwing on a blazer, I thought I’d show you how to wear a blazer this week!

Shopping for Blazers

Considering how versatile they are, you’ll need at least two good blazers in your closet. If you need to go shopping for blazers, its’s important to keep in mind the different looks you’ll be using your blazer for. Whether you’re dressing up for a big event like a wedding or going on your weekly date to catch a movie, you’ll want to have different types of blazers within reach.

To get the most use out of a blazer, I always recommending investing in neutral shades to get the most wear, such as black, grey, camel or navy blue.  Want to purchase a bold color? Red a pastel pink, or a mustard yellow are good colors that will stand out. All in all, before investing in a colored blazer, ask yourself: Will this color be popular in the years to come?

Styling Your Blazers

Indeed, there are so many different ways to style a blazer. Furthermore, make sure you choose the style that best fits your personal style. However, I realize this may be a daunting task especially if you’ve never incorporated a blazer into your wardrobe.

Nonetheless, here are 12 ways to style a blazer that will help you achieve an effortless powerhouse look.

Athletic and Sporty Casual:

If you’re going for a more casual look, style them with some biker shorts and a t-shirt or a sporty dress.

Holiday and Special Occasions:

Blazers are a great way to add an edge to your style. For holiday events and special occasion looks, a Blazer can you help elevate your outfit to a more sophisticated look. If you want to look bold, choose a pair of black leather pants that are tight-fitting (like I did in the second look below) and pair them with a button-down shirt and black blazer. If you’re pairing your blazer with a dress like the leopard print one below, I recommend going for a fitted or A-line silhouette to balance out the jacket.

    Wow! This post is SO GOOD! My go to look is always pairing a blazer with a cute turtle neck like you did in the brown outfit. The two outfits that really caught my eye were the blazer and ACDC tee and black and white outfit! Great post

      Hi Christina,

      Thank you so much for your kind words. A blazer, top, and denim pants are my go-to uniform. As it gets colder I add an overcoat to the mix and start layering up.
      My apologies to you for getting back to you so late. Thank you for commenting. Have a great day!
