A staple item with endless possibilities

We all have a blazer or two hanging in the closet. Whether wearing them to work or out on the town, it’s easy to wear our blazers the same way—Every. Single. Time.

Now, don’t get us wrong, we love a good outfit formula for an easier morning routine, but sometimes it’s good to shake things up! If you’re ready to try some experimental yet classic blazer combinations, here are eight looks we’re copying ASAP.

Nautical Stripes + Wide-Leg Pants + Draped Blazer

Flouncy dresses are great and all, but we can’t help but love an outfit with a strong silhouette. Blair Eadie is the queen of dramatic shapes, as she showcases in this powerful wide-leg pant and blazer combo. The contrasting expressive patterns of her nautical sweater and pants are balanced by the blazer elegantly draped over her shoulders.

T-Shirt + Statement Necklace + Sleek Blazer

If it were up to us, we’d never get out of our comfy tees. But maybe we don’t have to? As Jean Wang proves, a simple T-shirt can easily be dressed up for a night out. Simply add an over-the-top statement necklace and a sleek blazer. Now you’re ready for anything the night has in store.

Turtleneck + Jeans + Double-Breasted Blazer

Fashion of the 1970s really is back, and we don’t hate it. If anyone could pull off the seventies look, it’s Parisian It Girl Jeanne Damas. We’re stealing a few of her effortlessly cool styling tips ASAP—such as this chic turtleneck, jeans, and a retro double-breasted blazer look.

Belt + Skirt + Peplum Blazer

We don’t often wear blazers with our skirts, but we think it’s time to start! As Italian style superstar Giovanna Engelbert proves, a simple belt can change everything. Whether you’re wearing a pencil skirt or a midi skirt, try cinching in your blazer at the smallest point of your waist to create a playful peplum silhouette.

Flowing Blouse + Boyfriend Jeans + Oversize Blazer

Contrasting fabrics always create an interesting look. Try pairing your soft, flowing bohemian blouses with your oversize boyfriend jeans, and then top it all off with an oversize blazer for an outfit that straddles the line between relaxed and pulled-together. You can’t go wrong when taking a cue from French style icon Caroline de Maigret.

Skinny Jeans + Heels + Colorful Blazer

The classic skinny jean and heel look is one of our all-time favorite combos, but you know what makes it even better? A blazer. Olivia Trewatha knows what’s up in her pink blazer, blue jeans, and heels. This outfit combo should be a regular for anyone who has an affinity for comfortable-meets-chic ensembles.

Scarf + Trousers + Matching Blazer

Being matchy-matchy gets a bad rap, but we’re here to dispel all myths about wearing matching pants and tops. And Peony Lim is here to back us up with her adorable tweed trouser and blazer outfit. This perfectly academic look is even better with a silky neck scarf. We’re taking notes.

Crisp White Button-Up + Slacks + Classic Navy Blazer

We can’t forget the classic blazer combo, can we? The crisp white button-up and the navy blazer are like two peas in a pod. It’s not hard to rock this combo, but to play up the boy-meets-girl vibe, try completing the look with a pair of fitted slacks like Eleonora Mararo so elegantly displays.
