STYLE – How To Transform Your Looks With A Blazer
Blazers used to be formal and boring - only until a while ago. Lately, blazers have been repurposed to make a more feminine chic return to women’s wardrobes and create the perfect put-together looks for fashionistas. Whether you're heading to the boardroom or a casual-chic dinner date with friends, the revitalized blazer styling takes the uniform of old boys’ clubs to a whole new level. Not to mention the fact that a blazer never goes out of trend. That means less time and money spent for a dressier, classy and put-together look.
Here are the 5 stylish ways from She Is Rebel to you to transform your looks, from day to night, with just a blazer.
1. Basic's Not A Bad Thing
Via Who What Wear
A well-cut t-shirt styled with a pair of perfect-fit jeans – some may call it basic, but we call it timeless. By finishing it off with a blazer, you can transform this look to more sophisticated vibe. We’d wear a slightly oversized shape to maintain the masculine power of blazer. We love this outfit because of the contrasting light blue denim washes with darker pieces up top such as this darker checked blazer. Add a pair of loafers during the day and for a more evening-appropriate look, strappy sandals.
2. Daring To Bare
Spring and summer are the perfect seasons to rock a mini skirt teamed up it with a longline blazer to showcase your perfect layering skills. Turning a mini skirt into a work worthy outfit, we love the mix of different colored tweeds. They successfully complement each other by giving a preppy vibe to the outfit. Wear them with a crisp white shirt for Blair Waldorf-esque inspiration.
3. Loose And Laid-Back
Via From Luxe With Love
Sometimes, when you’re racing around town or the weather is actually bringing it’s A-Game, you don’t want to be in sticky skinny jeans. A laid-back loose-fitting pair of trousers will do the trick, and all the while don’t lose the sophistication of the outfit. This outfit screams Parisian vibes when finished off with a blazer as pictured here. Perfect for studying spreadsheets or sipping cocktails, this outfit is comfortable and stylish, no compromises made!
4. Bohemian Chic
Transition season means exposing your Bohemian-style midi dresses to daylight with a chic blazer. For a wedding party in the evening, or chilly nights with sea views, wear a blazer over your midi dress to clash prints and elevate your outfit and of course keep you warm. Alternatively, you can opt for a classic black blazer with gold details for a dressier, almost military-inspired touch. For winter time, swap those sandals or sneakers for knee-high boots for a dramatic edge.
5. Leopard Print Love
Via The Stylette
Another season comes and goes. Leopard print is still one of the top trends. Teaming leopard print with a classic blazer tones it down and makes it dressy without losing its stylish impact. We love this combination of a feminine midi skirt with a more sportswear-inspired top and a classic beige blazer – three things that on paper, should absolutely not go, but when thrown together make the perfect concoction. This is the ultimate street style goal!
