5 Fail-Safe Ways To Wear A Blazer
A good blazer might just be one of the hardest-working items in our wardrobes. It has the ability to add elegance, style, trend and practicality to anything layered beneath it. A slip evening dress? Yep. A T-shirt and jeans? Absolutely. A sweater and bike shorts? Very 2020. Yeap, a blazer has become a non-negotiable item them every woman should have her wardrobe and to prove it, with listed below all the different ways you can style it. Take notes.
The Oversized Blazer
The oversized is the silhouette that the fashion pack has fallen in love with. Featuring big boxy shoulders and found in a plethora of colours and patterns, this borrowed-from-the-boys blazer style is the perfect throw-on-and-go piece. Wear it throughout winter adding a roll-neck sweater, jeans and chunky ankle boots.
The Suit Blazer
For those occasions when a dress feels too formal, a loose-fitting suit strikes the perfect balance between polished and approachable. This look can be worn to the office or for dinner in the evening and it’ll look just as chic off-duty too paired with white sneakers and gold hoop earrings.
The Belted Blazer
A blazer worn cinched at the waist with a belt was the only way to way it in the 80s and it’s a style that remains just as popular today. Play with proportions and cinch the blazer in at the waist with a vintage leather belt, then wear with straight leg denim for an effortlessly cool take on the trend.
The Blazer and Jeans
You can never go wrong with a blazer and denim…but why not try on a Parisian accent and add a basket bag and cat-eye sunglasses like our favourite French blogger Adenorah for a high-fashion twist.
The Blazer and Midi Skirt
A blazer and midi skirt is one of our favourite pairings. Why? Well, the tailored silhouette of a blazer offsets the floaty cut of midi skirts perfectly, meaning your look is neither too girly nor masculine. For a cool, autumnal take, try pairing an oversized blazer with a pleated skirt and leather ankle boots.
