No longer associated with formal office workwear, the blazer has become a classic staple that answers any fashion dilemma. And now, we’re peppered with all types of styles, ranging from the shortest of cropped blazers to the boxiest of oversized blazers. Need some styling suggestions? Well, then sit tight as we navigate you through how to style your blazer in several outfit combinations.
How To Style Your Blazer Outfits Beyond A Suit
From tapered to baggy silhouettes, jeans are always a fail-safe option when you want to keep your blazer outfit chic and casual. Fashion influencers, Vira Tandia and Pam add extra height to their frame by styling their cropped blazers with a pair of high-waisted, wide-leg jeans. Alternatively, you could do what Stray Kids’ Seungmin has done, by opting for a slightly lower waistline to give a more dramatic look.

If you’re not a huge fan of accessories, why not elevate your blazer outfit with a hat? TXT’s Yeonjun chooses a bucket hat to top off his black, grey, and lilac colour scheme. Meanwhile, Oh My Girl’s Jiho is donning a baseball cap to coordinate with her monochromatic all-black ensemble.

As A Mini Dress
You don’t need to limit your blazer to a full-on suit. Try giving a more feminine take on this masculine outerwear by wearing your oversized blazer as a mini dress. For a summery look, take cues from fashion blogger, Song Aimee, and pair your blazer with some comfy slide-on sandals. Or draw inspiration from Jill Wallace’s city-chic style by glamming up your blazer with knee-high boots or statement heels.

Want an edgier vibe to your blazer outfit? Leather blazers are for you! Pair them with a pleated mini skirt to instantly add a rugged edge to your preppy style.

With A Midi Skirt
Don’t feel comfortable wearing short mini skirts? Then tap into your feminine side with a longer midi skirt instead. We recommend choosing a knee to calf-length blazer coat that extends a little past the hem of your skirt. This will keep your outfit looking balanced and well-proportionate. If you don’t want to look too girly, opt for a black leather skirt like Oh My Girl Mimi, for a grungier style.

- Black blazer coat (alternative: maxi blazer coat)

- Silver necklace

- Black ankle socks

As A Casual Suit
When in doubt, you can always fall back on a casual blazer suit to look polished yet effortless. But while there’s nothing sleeker than a classic black or neutral set, sometimes it’s fun to go all out in bright pastel hues.
