If you open any career girl’s wardrobe sits that one black blazer, lurking in the back corner of her closet awaiting the moment when it is chosen to wow the crowd. However, black blazers are no longer for business meetings and interviews, but as striking wardrobe add-ons for many occasions. Therefore, don’t take that blazer for granted and use Autumn/Winter as the perfect time to turn a black blazer from boring to stylish. Here’s how:
Transition a great one button blazer (like this one from Nordstrom) from the traditional waiter look into an uber chic Artist. Pair slim cut trousers with a long tailored button down, untucked. Don’t be afraid to step outside of the box with any special detailing such as decorative buttons, jacket stitching, and small lapels such as this jacket. Oxfords are a perfect end piece to this look.
A long, loose fitting black blazer like this one can amp up a tomboy look with feminine appeal. Wear with a crop top and torn denim or miniskirts and thick tights. Be sure to rock your pointy-toe pumps for the perfect casual date night.
This black cape blazer is all the rave and highly loved by fashionistas everywhere. This hybrid blazer will get you double takes once you walk in the room. So dress it with a turtleneck or button down and classic denim for a casual mod look or drape it over a body-con dress like this gorgeous look by Mercedes.
Drape a blazer over the perfect evening dress for a chic girl’s night out. Be sure to accessorize with ogle-worthy heels, and a statement clutch.
Boy meets girl with a cuffed black blazer, boyfriend jeans and either graphic or plain tee. We also love pairing this look with casual sneakers or trendy round toe loafers. For peek-a-boo addition, layer a bright colored cardigan underneath the jacket.
