Tips on casually wearing your blazer

Tips on casually wearing your blazer

John NguyenJan 27, '17

The blazer is one of the most versatile articles of clothing that you can have in your smart wardrobe. You can dress it up for your weddings or your fancy dinner dates and you can also dress it down to wear casually to a movie date or to the bar.

To start off, make sure that your everyday blazer is a neutral colour. I would opt for a dark navy blue. Bright blazers will stand out too much in your more formal settings. By keeping it a neutral colour, you also give yourself more versatility when it comes to choosing your outfits.

Here are 5 different outfits that you can wear with your blazer.

Outfit 1: The Minimalist

When you’re on the go for a casual hangout in the park or at your friend's house, you can throw these pieces on quickly and still look fresh.

The key pieces to this outfit.

  • T-shirt without any prints.
  • Dark Jeans
  • Casual shoes (i.e. Trainers or slip-ons)


Outfit 2: Suited for the Streets

On the colder days when you want to bundle up, popping on a hoodie to your minimalist look will keep you warm and stylish.
