How to Style: Blazers

I love blazers. They add a touch of sophistication to a simple jeans and tee shirt, and can tone down a cocktail dress. They are so versatile and are, in my opinion, a must-have in every woman's closet. Here are some of my favorite ways of styling blazers:

Casual Sophistication
By adding this simple black blazer to a basic tee shirt, tucked into ripped denim it gives this outfit a more structured look, while keeping it casual. With simple white converse, a few bangles and a black bag this outfit would be perfect for a casual date, or lunch with friends.

Simple Elegance
This outfit would be perfect for a simple evening date or a casual work outfit. A simple white blazer, graphic tee, black jeans and sparkly ballet flats, paired with a big statement necklace and black tote makes this the perfect balance of simplicity and elegance.

Dressing it up
By pairing your blazer with a cocktail dress (whether it be a slip dress, shift style, anything) and heels it makes this a perfect look for events where you need to be dressed up, but by still keeping it simple and tailored. Perfect for weddings, dinner dates and parties. This would have to be my favorite way of wearing blazers and i have definitely worn this type of look to many events.

Extra notes:
Try different patterns, floral, stripes etc. Makes a simple outfit have more depth.
Belting your blazer or cuffing it can change the look entirely, play around with the silhouette!

So those are just a few  of my favorite ways of styling the classic blazer. Hope this has given you some inspiration. Have a great day!
