Nine Ways to Style Your Blazer
If there is one thing every woman should have in her closet, it is a blazer! The thing about blazers, is that they're a timeless piece of clothing that can be worn anytime, anywhere and with any style. Blazers come in various colors, prints, and fits. You can go for over-sized or fitted, however, I prefer to go for a perfectly fitted blazer, and just play around with the rest of my outfit. Here are nine ways you can style a blazer, and they are all super chic.
Sometimes the weather is not too cold for a coat, yet also not warm enough for a wrap. This is where a blazer comes in handy, pair with a short or even long cocktail dress and head out. You'll be adding a sophisticated touch to your look.
2. Statement T-shirt
You can dress down your blazer and pair it with a statement t-shirt and necklace, adding some cutting edge to your look.
3. Over the Shoulders
Over the shoulder look has been a major trend this year. Embrace it, by adding a blazer over your shoulder to your look and head out.
What I love to do with a blazer is layer it. Go for an open denim shirt or even a vest, and add the blazer as a finishing touch to your look.
5. Plaid Shirts
A blazer can turn casual into super chic. Pair your plaid shirt with a blazer, just be sure to accessorize correctly. I would go for a statement necklace under the collar of the shirt.
6. Distressed Jeans
Don't think a blazer can't be dressed down to casual. Pair your blazer with a pair of distressed jeans and funky heels.
7. Statement Pins
If you don't feel like layering, just go for a simple tank, and close your blazer. Add some statement pins to them, and you just made your very own statement top.
Personally I prefer to pair my blazer with statement or pencil skirts. You can go for professional look with a pencil skirt, or add a fun touch with an embellished skirt.
Don't be afraid to ditch your heels when wearing a blazer. Go for a Converse or even some funky sneakers to dress down your blazer look.
