I’m back with another Five Ways to Wear It and this month I’m featuring a pretties request, the blazer! A while ago I put out the question to you all asking what you’d like to see styled on a future Ways to Wear It and this was an item that came up a lot. I was super excited when this happened because I absolutely love blazers. I’ve loved them since I was a teenager. I know that’s a little bit weird, but I was a teen in the 90s. I was watching Fresh Prince of Bel Air and Will, Carlton and Ashley all got to wear those cool blazers and Bel Air Academy and I was hooked. I’ve been a blazer lover ever since. People ask me all the time if a blazer is still in style because they’re not seeing them as much as they used to. Yes, they are always in style. They are a classic so even though they’re not always in vogue, they are always in style. If you have one hanging around in your closet, I’m going to show you five of my favorite ways to pair up my blazer with closet staples that you probably already have so you can shop your closet for these pieces.
The blazer that I’m styling and all these outfits is a classic camel blazer from J.Crew Factory. I promise you, if you’re in the market for a blazer, you cannot go wrong with a classic camel blazer. It’s going to work with everything and I want to show you just how easy it is to dress this piece up or down. Since all of the items are from my closet I’ve done my best to link up the same items if they are still available, if they aren’t, I’ve linked up similar items. Now let’s get started!
Camel Blazer + Leopard Top + Black Bottoms + Bright Shoes
I started off by pairing my camel blazer with a leopard blouse, high waisted black skinny jeans with some red heels because we all need a pop of color in our lives. Right? All of these basics are from J.Crew Factory however some of them are from last year so I’ll link up similar items. I also wanted to feature a more casual version of this look which is also pictured above where I styled it with a lightweight leopard sweater but you can also opt for a leopard t-shirt and then I added in some red flats instead of the heels.
Camel Blazer + Graphic Tee + Denim Bottoms + White Sneakers
Now, for something a bit more casual, and something that totally screams Alison. I’m pairing up my blazer with my graphic tee, my high waisted jeans, and some sneakers. Now, normally my inclination would be to grab my moto jacket and throw it on as my topper. But I have to say, I’m really, really digging the blazer with this. What do you guys think? Would you try this outfit out?
Camel Blazer + Black Top + Black Bottoms + Leopard Shoes
Look number three, let’s dress it back up. If I worked in an office, you better believe this outfit would be in heavy rotation because it’s so simple. Just pair up some black ankle pants, a black fitted T-shirt, and top this look with the blazer. Add in leopard heels and voila, it’s absolute perfection. And I just love column dressing. I love starting out with an all-black or all-white base and then adding on different toppers, shoes, and accessories to change up the look.
Camel Blazer + Chambray Top + White Bottoms + Snake Print Shoes
Now for number four. Who says you can’t wear white jeans in the fall and winter months? Definitely not me. I think white jeans are a year-round staple and I love to pair mine up in the fall with my buttoned-down chambray shirt and my snake print mules or ankle boots and then throw on the blazer for a little bit of added warmth.
Camel Blazer + Striped Top + Black Bottoms + Leopard Shoes
Last but not least it’s outfit number five. We’re going to transition this blazer from fall into winter territory by adding a tissue-weight striped turtleneck to my high waisted black jeans and then finish off with my leopard print booties.
That’s it for my five ways to wear a blazer. Which one was your favorite? Be sure to tell me in the comments and if there’s a piece hanging in your closet right now that you want to see me style on the next five ways to wear, be sure to let me know that too.
