Both blazers and denim have made a major comeback in the fashion world this year. And for good reason—they’re such versatile pieces that can easily be dressed up or down, and they look great on almost every body type. Blazers are also great for layering, which makes them an even better alternative to heavy sweaters this fall. From stylish ways to wear a blazer to tips on how to pull it off, we’ve got you covered this fall.
Invest In Quality Blazer
Blazers are a classic wardrobe staple, but if you want to take your style up a notch, invest in a quality one. The most basic rule of blazers is don’t wear them with jeans, but it’s more important than you think to invest in quality blazers. Depending on the fabric, a cheap blazer can look super cheap, and a quality blazer can last for years. Before making the investment, try it on in person to make sure it fits well and looks good. Also, take into consideration the presence of any stretch. Stretchy fabrics are almost always a deal breaker for blazers, since they can turn into an extra layer of fabric that bunches under your arms. Look for a stiffer, less stretchy fabric if you want to wear a blazer without worrying about it looking bulky.
Be Creative With Your Blazer Mix Match
Blazers are meant to be worn with both button-up shirts and slim-fit pants. A blazer worn with a pair of slim-fit jeans not only looks great, it can also help elongate the leg by drawing attention away from the length of the leg and onto your upper body instead. Some blazers are designed for more casual looks, while others are tailored for more formal occasions. Now, blazers aren’t really meant for anything in between—they’re pieces that can be worn with everything. So don’t be afraid to mix things up a little and wear your blazer in a more casual way, like with a tee and denim pants. For example, try a white V-neck T-shirt under a navy blazer, or wear a blue V-neck T-shirt under a grey blazer. Both of these outfits are casual but chic at the same time.
Stripes and Flannel
For this season, a blazer paired with a plaid shirt and grey flannel is a great combination. The plaid shirt works especially well with this fall combo, since it gives the outfit a little bit of texture. For this look, choose a pair of light-coloured denim jeans, and team them with a light-coloured long-sleeved plaid shirt, such as a plaid shirt in a dark grey colour or a plaid shirt in a light grey colour. Finish off this outfit with a pair of dark brown denim or dark boots, and a tan suede belt. For the look, pair the plaid shirt with a pair of light denim jeans, and finish off the look by pairing the denim shirt with a pair of dark brown leather boots. This plaid shirt and denim shirt combination looks great for both casual and dressed-up days. It also pairs well with a pair of black leather boots for a more dressed-down look.
Layer a blazer over a long-sleeved tee and jeans
A blazer’s versatility really comes into play when layered over other pieces. One of the best ways to do this is by layering a blazer over a long-sleeved tee and jeans. This look is great for casual weekends or when you just don’t feel like wearing a jacket. It’s also a great way to combine two styles you love but don’t wear often enough—jeans and long-sleeved tees.
Sweater + Green Blazer = Cozy Combo
Cozy Blazer are great for fall & winter season, and they make a great base for this blazer + sweater combo. For this look, choose a classic grey blazer, and pair it with a blue sweater, such as a blue fleece sweater, a deep blue sweater, or a light blue sweater. If you want to sharper look, you can match green blazer with neutral color sweater. Finish off the look with a pair of black leather boots or a pair of brown leather boots, and a tan suede belt. For this look, pair the grey & green blazer with either a blue or a light grey sweater, and pair the sweater with a pair of black leather or brown leather boots, depending on your preference. This combo looks great when worn with a pair of slouchy sweatpants and a baseball cap to add a more casual feel to the outfit.
How to Rock A Blazer Collar Roll-Up
This season, blazers are all about the collar roll-up. A collar roll-up is when you roll up the collar and then secure it with a bar tie. For this look, choose a blazer that has a button-up collar, and pair it with a pair of grey or navy blue slacks, such as a pair of grey slacks, a pair of navy blue slacks, or a pair of black slack. For this look, pair your blazer with a pair of grey or navy blue slacks, depending on your outfit’s overall theme. This collar roll-up looks best when paired with a pair of grey or navy blue slacks.
Tie It Up With either a Bow or a Belt
For this season, a classic leather belt has been making a comeback, and for good reason—it goes with almost everything and can be dressed up or down. For this fall, a black leather belt, paired with a blazer and khaki slacks, such as a pair of khaki slacks, a pair of grey slacks, or a pair of navy blue slacks, is a classic look that can be worn with almost any outfit. A bow tie, on the other hand, is a great alternative to a belt, and it can be worn with both casual and formal outfits. For this look, choose a blue , grey or a green blazer, and pair it with either a pair of khaki slacks, a pair of grey slacks, or a pair of navy blue slacks. Finish off the outfit by wearing a pair of black leather boots or a pair of brown leather boots, and a blue bow tie. For this look, pair your blazer with either a pair of khaki slacks, a pair of grey slacks, or a pair of navy blue slacks, depending on your outfit’s overall theme. Finish off the outfit by wearing a pair of black leather boots or a pair of brown leather boots, and a blue bow tie.
Add an accent piece to your outfit
When you’re wearing a blazer, you can easily elevate an otherwise casual outfit. One way to do this is by adding an accent piece, like a scarf, watch, or cuff. This gives your outfit a more polished feel, and it’s easy to do with blazers since they usually come in neutral colours. Choose an accent that fits your personal style and gives your outfit a pop of colour, like a scarf with neutrals or a watch with a brightly-coloured strap.
This year, blazers have made a major comeback. They’re not only great for layering, but they can look great in almost any outfit. Invest in a quality blazer, and you’ll be able to transition from casual to dressed-up days with ease. For this season, blazers are great for layering, and they can be worn with jeans, a button-down shirt, a sweater, and more. Choose your blazer wisely, though, as you don’t want to use it as an excuse to wear sloppy outfits. Layer up when the temperature drops below 10°C, and you’ll have no problem wearing your blazer.
