Personal style is all about creating an outfit that reflects your personality. How you mix and match different pieces, such as your shirt and your jacket, from your closet can bring your personality to life. Blazers are a great layering piece that you can combine with many items to create a fashionable outfit.
When most people think of blazers, they probably think of a formal business garment that needs to look conservative rather than edgy. However, they come in all shapes, sizes, and colors and can be worn for a variety of occasions. And the good news is you can get creative with styling your blazer.
Wear with A Pop of Color
Women have worn blazers for years, but have you ever styled one with a different color other than black? Adding a pop of color can instantly change your look, whether you are going out on the town or heading to work. Because blazers are more about structure and less about shape, you can dress them up or down without worry. They are a fantastic way to elevate your look instantly. Pair a plain black, gray, or white blazer with a pop of color or pattern in your shoes, scarf, or handbag.
The blazer is the quintessential office wear essential, but for some, it is an intimidating piece. The key to mastering the blazer is knowing how to style it. Start with a neutral-colored pantsuit. Try navy blue, chambray, beige, or grey. Then, layer a blazer or blazer dress over the top. Pair with pumps or kitten heels. Finish the look with a neutral bag and simple jewelry.
Wear with a Silk Set
A blazer is a classic wardrobe staple, and now, thanks to the brand, you can style one in a feminine way. The Silk Blazer by Marc by Marc Jacobs is a piece that will transition seamlessly from day to night. The silk chambray has subtle stripes throughout, and it is detailed with a gold-tone zipper, while another gold-tone buckle accents the waist. Style it with red silk trousers, an embellished blouse, and a pair of bow slides, and you are set.
Wear with Matching Accessories
A blazer is a great staple in your wardrobe, as it can be worn in many ways and styles. You can dress it down with jeans and a tee, or dress it up with a skirt and heels. Style it with a matching handbag, jewelry, and shoes to look chic, smart, and put together.
The whole point of a blazer is to add sophistication to your outfit, so keep your accessories simple. If you have a print on the blazer, wear a small necklace (or none at all), stud earrings, and a bracelet. If it is solid, pair it with neutral accessories.
Wear with a Suit
To style a blazer with a suit, start by looking for a dark blue or navy suit. This color works well with most of them and looks professional. For blazers that are darker than navy, look for lighter shades of red or green.
Blazers are a wardrobe staple, and while most people associate them with a business casual look, they can be used in more professional settings. Adding the right accessories to a classic blazer-and-suit combination can update the look and make it complete.
Wear With a Pair of Shorts
The summer is all about being comfortable and cool, which could mean dressing differently than usual. With that in mind, ditch the pants and opt for a casual pair of shorts for your next summer outing. In this case, we will be pairing our stylish blazer with one of our favorite summer musts: a pair of shorts.
Over a Mini Dress
This look is so chic and professional. It is one you should try if you have not already. It is perfect for work, office, or any kind of professional event. The key is to style it exactly right. Keep the blazer’s shoulders clean and unbuttoned, let the sleeves trail off the back of your hand, and tuck the dress into the blazer. You will look classic and put together but effortlessly cool.
Add a little black dress or a maxi dress, and you are set. This outfit with a blazer over a mini dress is a great look for work, meetings, or going out with friends. The key to rocking this look is to keep the blazer simple.
