The blazer has escaped its boardroom confines to become a true closet staple, more polished than the cardigan and a lighter layer than the trench coat, it is the answer to any outfit quandary. There are no limits to how you can style a blazer, whether you opt for a classic navy topper with a white t-shirt and jeans, an oversize linen style with leather shorts or a mini skirt, or even with sweatpants a la Tracee Ellis Ross. We've highlighted six outfits to help you untap the power of a great blazer.
Wear with... A Pop of Color
On days when you don't know what to wear, a white shirt, black blazer, and high-heel combo will never fail you. Bonus points if you throw a bright hue into the mix.
Wear with... Neutrals
Monochromatic dressing is as fresh as ever, we love the idea of topping an all-white ensemble with a crisp blazer—yes, even after Labor Day (hey, if it is good enough for Princess Diana...).
Wear with... Sweats (Yes)
Welcome to your airport outfit, Zoom uniform, and early morning coffee run ensemble all in one. A long-cut blazer and high-top sneakers make sweatpants look sophisticated.
Wear with... a Silk Set
A blazer over a feminine evening outfit lands that perfect mix of masculine and feminine—Bianca Jagger would know.
Wear with... Matching Accessories
Ditch the knee-length skirt and opt for a mini moment (we predict they are coming back). A blazer and a mini-skirt create a super feminine silhouette, especially with Mary Janes to match.
Wear with... a Suit
Ok, ok, this one might seem obvious, but don’t be fooled: a modern suit is a layering opportunity that will land you on the best-dressed list. For extra points, add a fresh flower.
