I have blazers that are YEARS old. And when taken care of properly, a good blazer jacket will last a long time. You don’t have to pay a pretty penny for one, but I do think when you spend a little bit more the quality and fit will be better overall.
A few ways to wear a blazer jacket are:
- Pair it with Denim. You can go as casual as you want and add sneakers for a street vibe or add heels for a bit of more sophisticated look.
- Pair it with a pencil skirt; it’s the perfect office look if you ask me! Note: I love how she paired an oversized blazer with a pencil skirt for this look. The proportions of the outfit are so well done!
- Layer it with a dress.
- Match it up!
As you can see the idea of wearing a blazer just for work is old and outdated. If you do not have a blazer, it’s time to get one.
What kind of blazer should you buy? Well, there are TONS of different styles out there. You have your classic blazers, your oversized blazers, tweed blazers, sleeveless blazers, velvet, plaid, and the list goes on.
My suggestion is to start with a basic color. You’ll get the most out if, and it will be the easiest to dress up or down (J.Crew, will be your best bet and they always have good sales). To help my visual gals, I created a Pinterest board with nothing but my favorite blazer OOTDS. Follow along here.
What do you think about blazers? Have I convinced you to buy one yet??!
Thank you so much for stopping by, have a great day!
