Blazers can often come across as too formal and suited more for a work meeting. But blazers have come so far with a variety of colors and pattern options. They are no longer boring but add a nice layer to lots of outfits while looking and feeling polished (and fun!). So, here are a few of my favorite ways to wear blazers right now…
Outfit 1 – Velvet Blazer
This super soft velvet blazer is way more low key than the structured, traditional blazers of the past. It runs longer in length to give it a bit of a duster vibe and drapes well on top of lots of pieces for this time of year. I love this deep blue color over a simple white tee and patterned pants and topped with a great pair of clogs.
Outfit 2 – Solid Blazer
Forget your boring black blazer and add a great solid color to your closet instead! I got a XL kids’ size blazer here for a more cropped cut (tip: this is a great option if you are petite to shop the larger sizes in the kids’ section). Layered over a pink vintage jumpsuit and paired with some pink boots, this mixes fancy and casual for a full-on pink power outfit.

Outfit 3 – Floral Blazer
A floral blazer can have a different vibe depending on the colors, scale, and style of the pattern. Typically, I’d go for bold, large scale florals. But for a blazer, this smaller scale print feels a little more versatile. I paired this light blue blazer over a lace dress for a soft and feminine look perfect for a weekend brunch or baby shower.
Outfit 4 – Color Block Blazer
This blazer is soft with a minimal collar making it more casual and easy to wear. I love two-tone colors to pair with a neutral outfit or to add to a colorful one!
