ALL HAIL THE BLAZER – 4 Ways to Wear it - Style Video Inside!


Of all the wardrobe staples we put on a pedestal, blazers have undoubtedly been the most consistent. A good blazer is the foundation of a well-rounded wardrobe. Blazers add sophistication and style to any look; effortlessly top off your jeans and t-shirt with a statement bootie & blazer to take it up a notch. I styled this grid print blazer 4 different ways to show just how versatile it is and it looks different worn with every outfit. See my looks below and where you can find a blazer just like this one.

LOOK 1: Casual Chill

The blazer is styled here for casual events like running errands, hanging with friends, or simply being productive in your local coffee shop. I styled it with joggers and platform sneakers to relax the blazer a bit ( okay sophisticated sporty-spice!). The gold hoops are necessary, and the sleeveless turtleneck makes the look very chic & fall appropriate.

TIP: Choose to wear a belt or fanny pack to accentuate the waist so your figure isn’t lost in an oversized blazer.

LOOK 2: Date Night in Neon

This look is elevated and electric. As you can tell by the midriff exposure and neon trend, sex-appeal and sass are major components here. I paired my blazer with a denim straight-leg pant and a green strappy heel. The snake print belt tied it all together.

TIP: Make sure to pair straight-leg pants like this pair with a heel. They fall easier (and don’t puddle at the ankles) and they make you look longer & sleeker.

LOOK 3: After Six Slay

For this look, I print blocked the leopard and grid print blazer to create a simple and sophisticated look for happy hour. The turtleneck makes the leg-bearing ensemble look fall appropriate. The sock boots add more warmth and the golden chandelier earrings add some play to a stuffy blazer and turtle neck combo.

TIP: If one of your prints is colorful, go for a more subtle black and white print to pair for more visually appealing print-blocking.

LOOK 4: Werking Class

I paired the blazer with an olive skirt from Marsté and a trendy pair of white boots. Blazers have always been aligned with workwear, I paired it with the band t-shirt to remind us not to take blazers too seriously. The leopard belt was an easy transition from the skirt to the t-shirt.

TIP: If you feel your look is disconnected, belts always work as a way to seamlessly transition from top to bottom.
