What tops do you wear with a blazer?

Blazers are very versatile and can be worn for both casual and formal occasions. So, when it comes to the best tops to wear with blazers, the options are endless. Here are some of the best tops to style with a blazer:

  • basic white t-shirt
  • graphic t-shirt
  • ribbed knit tank
  • satin camisole top
  • basic tank top
  • classic button-up shirt
  • lightweight knit sweater
  • turtleneck shirt

If you are wearing a blazer as a casual jacket with a pair of jeans, dress it down with a basic t-shirt or tank top. On the other hand, for a dressier occasion, pair a blazer with a chic satin camisole top and leather pants.

How can I look cute in blazer?

If you want to look cute while wearing a blazer, it’s best to balance the masculinity of a blazer with more feminine pieces. Blazers tend to have a looser fit, so try styling them with form-fitting pieces like a ribbed tank top and straight-leg jeans. 

Another sure-fire way to make a blazer look cute is to add heels to the outfit. You can wear any type of heel including pumps, sandals, or heeled boots to get the right effect. 

Lastly, bring in feminine accessories like a cute headband, dainty jewelry, and a chic purse. 

Blazer Outfit Ideas To Copy

Now that you know the basics for styling a blazer, get inspired with even more blazer outfits for ladies that are chic and definitely have a feminine vibe. 

Below you’ll see some of the best street style trends for modern ways to rock a blazer. 

Boyfriend Blazer Outfit

get the look:

A boyfriend blazer (also known as an oversized blazer) has a more oversized look rather than a fitted blazer. We love the look above with the patterned blazer, graphic t-shirt, and vintage-wash jeans.  

The outfit has a “took-it-from-my-boyfriends-closet” vibe but still looks feminine with the figure-hugging jeans and accessories. 

We would style this look with a pair of slingback block heels that can easily take you from day to night. 

Camel Blazer Outfit

get the look:

A camel blazer is incredibly versatile and a great option for fall outfits. You can pair it with a feminine slip dress and suede heels like the look above, or with a more laid-back outfit. 

We love the combination of the oversized blazer and feminine dress as the length of the blazer gives an elevated look to the outfit. 

If you aren’t into a dress, try a camel blazer with black jeans and a striped black and white knit sweater underneath. Finish the outfit with camel or black loafers for a sophisticated vibe. 

Blazer Outfits With Sneakers

get the look:

A blazer with sneakers might seem like an odd fit, but done the right way, it’s a match made in style heaven. The professional look of a blazer can be easily toned down with the playfulness of sneakers. 

The look above proves this theory as the trainers give the whole outfit an athleisure vibe. It’s the modern twist on a sporting club look that men wore for decades (women just do it better now…)

get the look:

Above is another stylish take on blazer outfits with sneakers. A slightly oversized black blazer can look more laid-back with a basic black t-shirt, vintage wash straight-leg jeans, and simple white sneakers. 

This outfit is perfect for a day of running errands and lunch with friends. If your work hosts “Casual Fridays”, this is an easy way to look professional while wearing denim in a corporate office setting. 

What blazer to wear with a dress?

When wearing a dress and a blazer together, there are two options to try. First, you can style an oversized blazer with a midi dress for a more casual look. Or, you can style a fitted blazer with a cocktail dress for a more formal look. 

For business meetings, we suggest a tailored blazer with a midi dress that is more form-fitting, but not overly tight. And, if you are going out for drinks with friends, style an oversized blazer with a silk slip dress. 

Ultimately, there is no hard and fast rules when it comes to wearing a blazer with a dress. Play around with different styles to find the look that best suits you and the occasion. 

Below are a couple of outfits to inspire you! 

Midi Dress + Linen Blazer

get the look:

For a casual yet elevated look, pairing a midi shirt dress with a linen blazer is the way to go. Midi dresses are a great option for spring and summer, and the blazer is a perfect way to add an extra layer if it’s cooler out. 

This outfit can be worn for running errands and brunch with friends, or for a wine tasting at a vineyard. The look is versatile and works for all kinds of occasions and events. 

Loafers are an excellent choice to keep the polished look, but you could easily swap them out for heels to take the outfit from day to night. 

Oversized Plaid Blazer + LBD

get the look:

An oversized blazer with a hem that rests below the bum is the perfect substitute for a jacket. We love the look of a plaid blazer with a little black dress for the perfect mix of masculine and feminine. 

The dainty heeled sandals make the outfit more dressy and add in even more of a feminine vibe. This look is perfect for date night, girl’s night, or a formal event in the evening. 

Red Blazer Outfit

get the look:

A red blazer is a bold choice but works when done the right way. In fact, according to Town & Country, the name “blazer” was first coined in 1952 when an article referred to the “blazing red” jacket worn by members of Cambridge’s Lady Margaret Boat Club. 

We recommend pairing a red blazer with neutral colors like black, tan, or white. Other colors will compete with the red and may end up looking tacky rather than polished and classy. 

Blazer Outfits With Jeans

Pairing a blazer with jeans is a no-fail way to look stylish and elevated. The three outfits above show how you can rock this combination with both loafers and sneakers.

Go with a simple navy blazer over a white shirt with blue jeans and cream loafers for a sophisticated, laid-back look.

get the look:

For a Parisian-inspired look, style a neutral-toned linen blazer with an ivory cami, cropped blue jeans, and black slingback mules.

get the look:

Go casual with a tan boyfriend blazer, white t-shirt, and converse sneakers. This outfit is chic yet effortless and can be thrown together in a flash. 

Blazer Outfits For Work

Wearing a blazer to work should feel second nature, even if you work in a more casual environment. Below are two looks that can be worn for a more professional work setting, or an office that has table tennis and napping pods.

A blazer and leather pants is an excellent choice for the office. It’s stylish and professional with a bit of an edgy vibe.

get the look:

This monochromatic outfit is giving us all the feels. The oversized black blazer looks excellent with black cropped trousers and black loafers. It’s professional and very chic at the same time. 

Blazer Outfit With Shorts

get the look:

The blazer and shorts combo is definitely having a moment. We love the look of an oversized boyfriend blazer in the summer thrown over a knit tank and pleated shorts. 

Add a pair of casual sandals for a laid-back look or go with heeled sandals for a dressier take in the summer months.
