It has got to be said, a good blazer is a staple for every wardrobe. Why? Well a blazer is so much more than an item of clothing which can be worn in a professional manner. They’re so versatile and not something which you would only pair with a skirt or trouser. Personally I love to wear a blazer with jeans, it has actually become one of my favourite looks as there’s a real feeling of chic sophistication with this style. That’s why I want to share how to wear a blazer with you today!
Blazers are great if you’re looking for structured layers. Cardigans can sometimes seem too relaxed, and jackets are too bulky to wear all day long. Blazers are just right! One of the great things about a classic fitted blazer is that you can pair it with just about anything. One of the chicest ways to wear it is to pair it with distressed denim, although equally a pair of wide-legged trousers works well too. There’s also the option of the boyfriend blazer, the boyfriend blazer should fit a little bit longer than a classic blazer, and the looseness of the fit should be subtle but never baggy. You can see how I’ve recently styled the boyfriend blazer here. So, find your favourite colour, pattern and style and get one that fits you just right. I promise you that blazers will soon become one of your favourite looks too.
