With matching pants coordinated look
We all know that blazers are meant to be worn for professional endeavors. The formal look is a must have dress code for the office indeed. So, a blazer can be worn as a full suit, with matching pants to carry a full formal look. Moreover, you can add a waistcoat to make it a royal three-piece suit, similar to the Michelle Obama unforgettable moment at the inauguration. You can opt for different textures and prints to make these outstanding suits stand different among others. This detailed look makes you appear more professional and sleeker at the same time. Also, a tailored fit is impeccable when highlighting the contours of the body for a chic feminine approach.
Wear with this summer’s hottest new trend – the bralette
Let’s be more playful with these blazers, shall we. We are all for going out and having a good time with our friends and getting the best photo to post of the night. You want to be well put together, but also not too dressy, right? The perfect balance for that is to wear a bralette underneath your blazer, it is the perfect sultry sophisticated look. Bralettes were all over the runways last season and making a return this season and honestly, we are loving this trend! We love the versatility of wearing the blazer open or button closed with your bralette, depending on your style preference. You can pair your blazer with ankle fit straight leg jeans and strappy heeled sandals. Also, to add another style tip with the blazer - distressed boyfriend jeans would go really well with the bralette and blazer look, cuff up the leg of your jeans and add your favorite heels.
Wearing your Blazer oversized
Oversized blazers are a new obsession today. With our celebrity crushes giving some major style goals, oversized blazers have now become a fashion statement. These big and loose blazers can be donned as full suits, with matching pants. You can either button it up or even let the blazer glide open above your pants. Another easy and trendy style is wearing it over your shoulders to give a more relaxed yet effortless look. Let’s not forget our style crush Hailey Baldwin Bieber here for she has bodied this look this look nnumerous times of the oversized blazers (paying homage to Princess Diana 90s casual looks of course) and we cannot stop gushing over it. We advise going up a few sizes to get this look, it such a relaxed polished feel
Wearing a top underneath (button-up, tank, mock neck top)
To pull off a more casual look, one that is super convenient to carry as well as wearing a blazer with a top underneath. Now there are endless options in the type of tops, and you can choose as you please. Going with a seamless tank bodysuit would give you a comfortable look that is easy to carry as well. You can also play around with mock neck tops and button-up tops to add contrast textures and layers. Moreover, depending on the texture, pattern, and print of your blazer, you’ll never fail with a simple white t shirt that’s always so classic.
Wearing blazer as casual chic look with activewear
We have focused on pairing our blazers with casual tops and matching pants, but let us now consider wearing them with one of the hottest trends of today i.e. activewear. During 2020, that was the outfit of choice (leggings, sweats, biker shorts) and if you are not completely over parting ways with your comfort clothes – we get it, neither are we! We have seen many looks paired with bike shorts, leggings, and sweats over the past year, some are ready to switch things up and get dressed up again. This matching and pairing may surprise you, but it will make you look classic and relaxed at the same time. Experimenting with fashion is always fun and it has no limits. Just grab your bike shorts in any colour and wear a sports bra and blazer over them and you are ready to stun eyes. Adding another layer, try with sneakers or trainers with tube socks to make them look more casual and relaxed.
