How to Style a Blazer Like it’s 202224.11.2021
We all have fall staples that we come back to year after year: jeans, ankle boots, cashmere knits, and we think it’s time that blazers are added to that list. Although they were originally worn as a part of an office-ready suit, blazers can now be worn at any occasion. Learn which blazer styles and how to wear them to achieve maximum chicness. Plus, there’s one that won’t work in fall – winter 2022.
#1 PAIR A BLAZER WITH SWEATS OR JOGGERS
Comfortable pants paired with a structured jacket is the ultimate look for 2021. However, this doesn’t necessarily mean that any combination will work. For lounging at home, stick with pants that are cinch at your ankle and not flare at the bottom. The blazer is all about finding the perfect fit. You can finish the look with a bodysuit or fitted tee and simple footwear (sneakers/looters, slides, etc.). ).

#2 TRY RUNWAY CROPPED CUTS
This unexpected trend was everywhere on the runways for fall 2020. However, it wasn’t popular during the pandemic. Very few people were choosing structured styles. It’s finally making its way onto the streets, one year later. To keep your proportions under control, pair your cropped jacket with high-waisted boyfriend jeans or straight-leg jeans. Pair it with a sharp shoe like a pointed-toe flat or pumps to maintain your balance.

#3 LAYER ONE OVER COORDINATING WIDELEG PANTS
Although it is sometimes called a suit, it does not have to be. Monochrome looks can be achieved by pairing a wool-cotton jacket with jeans or silk trousers in the same color. This wide-leg silhouette makes your look more casual and relaxed than traditional office attire. A jacket and trousers can be paired with simple pieces like a T-shirt, simple jewelry, and a slouchy bag or clutch.

#4 OPT FOR A LEATHER VERSION
Fall/winter 2021 is a big season for faux and leather. Pants, dresses and blazers are all in fashion. If you’re looking for a leather jacket, looser cuts and larger silhouettes are your best bet. But don’t limit yourself to neutrals or natural colors. Classic black is the most comfortable, but pale lilac can be unexpectedly stylish.

- Marc Fisher Ltd. boots ($189)
#5 WEAR YOUR BLAZER AS A JACKET
You can swap your favorite denim or moto jacket in favor of a longer-cut blazer for a stylish alternative that will give your ensemble a more polished look. This style looks best when worn with midi skirts, dresses, mini dresses or jeans. But, feel free to experiment and find what you like. Layer your blazer under or over another jacket to add warmth when temperatures drop.

#6 GO CLASSIC WITH A TRADITIONAL PLAID
Plaid blazers are timeless, especially in fall. Layering a plain white tee with blue-wash jeans or ankle boots will look great under a plaid jacket.

#7 AVOID EXAGGERATED SHOULDERS
This ’80s trend was briefly on the rise for a short time, but it’s now gone. We don’t think power suit shoulders look any different from a costume because they are too closely linked to bad hair and large-sized cell phones.
