A Blazer: The Most Versatile Piece in Your Closet

A blazer is probably the most versatile piece in your closet. Some may think it’s only appropriate for when you need to dress up in a business setting, but that is just not the case. There a so many possibilities that a blazer can give you when getting dressed. Whether it’s a day in the office, out to lunch or a night time look, a blazer will not let you down.


When the attire is casual, jeans and blazer should be your go-to outfit. This is an easy look to pull off that also exudes a sense of chicness. Simply throw on jeans and a tank and then layer it with a blazer to add that extra oomph while still keeping it low-key. If you need to dress up the look a bit, then a pair of stilettos will do the trick!

This is one look that can be dressed up or down, but either way pairing a dress with a blazer will always be a good idea. If you do come across a situation where you need to look business professional then a pencil skirt, blouse and blazer is the perfect look. However, if the occasion is a bit more casual, then a denim dress, sandals and a blazer will be the ultimate outfit. There are so many different ways to pair a blazer with a dress that there is no doubt you can find a way to do it and make it look amazing with what you already have in your closet. However, if you are in the mood to shop, this year’s fall trends are highlighting plaid and bright purples and pinks, and you could easily pair a plaid blazer with a bright pink dress to pull off a very on-trend outfit.

You can never go wrong with the classic pantsuit (or skirt suit). Whether it’s pin stripes or plaid, this will come off as fresh and trendy. Adding a pair of heels only elevates the look more. Whether you’re out on the town or in the office, a suit will always look appropriate and choosing one with color is a fun way to wear a classic outfit. Animal prints are also something to keep in mind when putting together outfits, as they are the new print of the season. A bold colored suit featuring an animal print will be sure to turn heads (in a good way).

This may seem a bit unconventional, but when you want to be cozy and chic at the same time, this look is for you. Pairing jogger-like sweats with a blazer is the look you never knew you needed. Shoes can go either way with this look depending on the occasion. Pairing it with sneakers is a cool street style look, whereas slipping into heels while wearing this outfit will heighten your style for a dressier appearance.
