A good blazer should be a staple in every girl’s wardrobe. A blazer is so much more than an item of clothing that can be worn in a professional setting. They’re a lot more versatile than something you pair with trousers or a skirt! I love wearing my blazer with jeans – it dresses them up and adds a feeling of chic sophistication.
Blazers are also great if you’re looking for structured layers. Cardigans can sometimes seem too relaxed, and jackets are too bulky to wear all day long. Blazers are just right! So, find your favorite color and pattern, get one that fits you just right, and check out these ideas inspired by fashion bloggers all over Pinterest. I promise you that blazers will become one of your favorite things in your closet. Here are 20 style tips on how to wear a blazer:
1. A blazer is an easy way to make sneakers, jeans and a plain shirt look instantly more dressed up.
2. Missing your favorite crop top and skirt combo from the summer? Add a blazer to make it work for cooler nights.
3. A blazer looks perfectly boho-chic with a floppy hat and ankle boots.
4. Make your maxi skirt work for fall by simply adding a blazer.
5. When you go out wearing a tight, short dress, you can keep warm while also looking glam by wearing a blazer.
6. Shorts with tights look right at home with a long blazer that skims the bottom of the shorts.
