It’s no secret that fashion trends change constantly, but it can be challenging to build outfits that keep up with popular looks. Fortunately, you don’t have to rearrange your wardrobe every time the trends change. You should shape your personal style around what works for you and your fashion preferences rather than the latest looks. With that said, dressing nice doesn’t have to involve a dress or skirt—consider a few unique ways to style a blazer for an elegant look.

With Skinny Jeans and Heels

You never know when you’ll need an outfit that lands between business casual and casual, so having a few neutral-colored women’s blazers and jackets in your wardrobe is an excellent start. Believe it or not, you can transform a basic outfit into something a little more elegant with two simple additions. Start with skinny jeans and a solid-colored scoop neck tee; top the outfit with your blazer and throw on some heels for the perfect in-between ensemble.

Pro Tip

Carry a neutral-colored leather tote bag to elevate the look and appear more sophisticated and confident.

With Leggings and Sneakers

There’s nothing better than a lazy day outfit, but it may be too informal for your plans some days. However, you can easily dress up your laziest ensembles by adding a blazer. Even if you want to wear leggings with a cropped graphic tee and sneakers, you can class it up a bit by topping this outfit with your neutral-colored blazer.

Styling Tip

This is the perfect opportunity to rock your favorite ball cap or trucker hat!

Over or as a Dress

Wearing dresses may or may not be your cup of tea, and that’s okay either way. If you are in favor of them, you can wear a blazer over your favorite dress to create a fresh outfit. On the other hand, some blazers are long enough to wear as dresses themselves. Although this is a risky outfit for some, a long blazer makes for a unique, beautiful look—especially when you pair it with heels and statement jewelry.

After learning a few ways to style a blazer for an elegant look, you’re ready to build beautiful outfits using one of the most essential investment pieces in your closet. If you don’t already have a blazer, consider adding one or more to your wardrobe to elevate your existing outfits.
