How to Wear a Blazer

Blazers immediately add polish and style. Now, we’re trying to avoid the 80s big shoulders, over-sized and boxy, stole-this-from-my-husband look. Your blazer should be fitted and slim — we’re going for a tailored look. There are several ways to give twists to your blazer, beyond the formal look of a suit.

First, try wearing your blazer with slim pants or leggings, maybe with a soft layering piece underneath. A feminine top helps balance the masculinity of the blazer. Perfect example? Her Royal Chicness Kate Middleton.

Don’t let your blazer be too formal and stuffy! Pair your blazer with cuffed jeans and some fabulous shoes to add a feminine twist. Or find a blazer with a awesome lining and roll up the cuffs!
