We all know if you want that boss-chic, well-put-together look, a blazer is the plug that never disappoints. The blazer was originally developed as a dapper look for a less formal event, such as when one goes yachting or golfing but through the years, its use and relevance has grown in leaps.
In a lot of ways a blazer falls in between a suit jacket and a sports coat; roomier than a suit jacket but more fitted than a sports coat. It is the ideal accessory for the not so formal but classy look.
Here are some easy ways to go from a zero to hundred with a blazer
#1. Pair that dress with a blazer
To add some classy flair to a flowy maxi dress, spice it up with a lightweight blazer. Some killer accessories and the right pair of heels will make all the difference here. A pair of sneakers can transform the look to an effortless and contemporary one.

#2. Blazer on jeans
Never underestimate the power of a chic blazer on pencil jeans. For a fashion-forward look, it’s best to opt for a structured blazer with high heel or kitten heels for that effortless chic look or sneakers for a sporty finish.
#3. Blazer and turtleneck
Pairing a blazer with a turtleneck top, whether silk, cotton or wool, gives off a layered chic appearance. Complement with a leather skirt and thank me later!

#4. Matching shorts and blazer outfit
It’s more common for women to wear blazers on cotton or denim shorts but a shorts suit set is a pretty unique way to rock a blazer look. A matching shorts suit look is definitely not for the faint-hearted and only real divas can pull this look off without a fuss. A neutral tank top gives a little breakthrough to the entire outfit.
#5. Blazer and a slip dress
The slip dress is among one of the sexiest 90s’ trends that revisited tin 2019. While it is an elegant outfit by itself, the plunging neckline restricts it to only occasion wear. Throw a blazer over a lovely slip dress to keep you warm, chic and classy for any function, from the office to an evening outing with friends or date night with the love of your life.
Accessorize with a mini handbag or purse, some layered necklace to match the shine of the dress and throw on some strappy heels to add an extra touch of class.
