Blazers are a perfect transitional wardrobe piece; they provide just enough warmth and coverage to keep chills away!

Wear It As a Dress

If you’re worried about wearing outerwear as a dress, don’t be. Follow Kendall Jenner’s lead! This look requires your blazer to be the center of your outfit – just add some tights! If needed, belt it to accentuate your waist. Finish the look with neutral pumps or boots and a small statement bag.

Not brave enough to wear your blazer alone? We have two solutions. Try wearing a camisole and biker shorts underneath (they won’t be seen under the blazer, but they’ll keep you covered. Another option is to wear the blazer over a basic dress. This will give you a similar look while upholding the comfort of a more familiar garment.

Layer, Layer, Layer

You already know that you can amplify your basics by combining them! Simply pair a shirt dress with a sweater and top it off with a blazer and boots. For warmer days, you can cheat this look with a sweater vest. Don’t forget to tie it all together with your favorite go-to accessories!

Matchy Matchy

Have you considered wearing a full suit as a fashion statement? You should. To style this look, grab your matching set and a basic top to layer underneath. If you want flirty, try a V-neck silk camisole. If you’re going for high-fashion streetwear, try a fitted turtleneck. Either way, leave your blazer hanging open, and don’t forget to match the shoes to the vibe – we say heels or Dr. Martens are a good bet.

Casually Fancy

For a look that says “off-duty fashion model,” try pairing an oversized blazer with sweatpants. We know it sounds weird, but just look at Hailey Bieber. This look works best with more fitted sweatpants, like joggers, which will lessen the bulk of the outfit and balance out a boyfriend-cut blazer nicely.

You don’t have to be scared to try out this popular blazer trend. These tips will help you style yours like the celebs!
