Just like a little black dress, a good blazer should be an absolute must in every woman’s wardrobe. Versatile, cosy, flattering and practical, blazers nowadays are so much more than ‘corporate’ clothing. That conception is a thing of the past, and we’ve compiled this list to prove it to you. No matter the nature of your outfit or where you’re going, a blazer will add a touch of smart to the casual, and can also make an elegant look a million times more high-end. Keep reading for tips on how to wear this amazing garment.
There is something attractive about wearing oversized clothing. It’s a liberating change from the traditional tighter-fit women’s clothing, and it looks amazing. And oversized blazer will give any outfit more of a professional look without taking it all the way – it is the perfect mix between a relaxed and smarter outfit. To achieve this look, you can even shop for blazers in the men’s section – as they tend to be more of a box cut.
2. AS A TOP
There’s no need to have anything underneath the blazer if you choose to make the blazer your primary top choice. Needless to say, it’ll look absolutely amazing! Wearing a blazer as a top is very flattering and perfect for a night out. It’s an easy way to make your outfit look effortlessly chic – especially if the blazer is black and you combine it with a waist belt.
3. CASUAL STYLE
This look is perfect to wear it on your day-to-day life. Paired with jeans and a t-shirt, a blazer instantly adds a bit of elegance to an otherwise very casual and relaxed look. It’s amazing how one garment can really transform an entire look! Wearing a blazer and a t-shirt is a great look for work, especially if you wish to dress super comfortably but also want to look chic for meetings.
4. AS A DRESS
This is a killer look, and it’s fitting for a special occasion. Whether is a night out with your friends, a party or date night, wearing a blazer as a dress is certainly a bold statement. You can always choose a black blazer if you want to give this look a go, but in order to really turn heads, we suggest going all in and moving away from black.
5. WITH A MAXI SKIRT
If you’re thinking your overall look with a maxi skirt is too feminine for your taste, adding a blazer to it is the perfect solution to your problem. Blazers look great with pants, but they also look incredible paired with skirts. It’ll also add professionalism to an otherwise more bohemian look.
6. WITH SHORTS
This combination looks absolutely fantastic! Blazers look amazing with shorts, no matter the season. If the weather is hot, leave the blazer as an evening garment, and if it’s a little bit colder, you can always wear shorts with tights to complete the look. Shorts tend to ‘cut’ the length of the legs, but because a blazer tends to slim the figure, the combination looks stunning.
7. ELEGANT AND FORMAL
This look shouldn’t need much breakdown, as it basically involves a blazer looking stunning as a feature garment to wear to a super formal event. Note that’s all in the details as well, (for example, the gold buttons) that add extra elegance to the outfit. Remember that less is more, and you could look a million bucks by simply choosing to wear classic black pants and a jaw-dropping blazer.
8. AS A POP OF COLOUR
If you have your favourite jeans on and a neutral top and would like to add an extra focal point to your outfit, a colourful blazer can be just what you need. Easy to take off if you get bored but classy and chic, a blazer will easily add a pop of colour to any outfit in a matter of seconds, without compromising your basic tops or bottoms.
9. A TOUCH OF VINTAGE
Maybe it’s time to go to your grandma’s (or grandpa’s) closet and see what’s in there! A vintage blazer will make any look ten times more interesting, especially if it’s of a high quality. The fabric and the lining will probably mean it’ll be a winter blazer only, but that doesn’t mean you can make it your favourite cold weather garment. Oh, and pairing it with an equally vintage waist belt – perfection!
10. WITH A MAXI DRESS
Adding a blazer to your maxi dress look has the power to change it completely. If you want to add a ‘classy’ element to your outfit, then a blazer is a must. Wearing a long dress means you won’t have too layers to deal with, meaning you’ll have a more relaxed, flowy look. Because a blazer has a very defined cut and it slims down the figure, it can make you maxi dress look smart-casual effortlessly.
