There are a lot of versatile pieces in the average wardrobe: white tees, elevated denim, slip dresses, but there’s one piece that you can add into your everyday rotation. Consider the blazer as a finishing touch to any outfit. Add a bit of polish to a tee shirt and jeans or add bit of day time casual to a slip dress. Blazers are far from the business casual staple they’ve come to be known for.
How to Wear Your Fall Blazers
So how do you wear them outside of the boardrooms and business meetings? Find the right fit. Blazers don’t have to be structured and strict, though they’re just as good that way. Wear them oversized, pair them with short shorts and ankle boots or pair them with boyfriend jeans and a fitted tee shirt. Instead of a mini dress, wear a blazer and matching pants with a standout bralette en lieu of a top. Or lean into the look and wear a blazer with matching dress pants. The key to making this work outside of well work, is color and the options are endless; neons, millennial pink, neutral tones.

An upgrade from poring over thrift store racks for hours, this oversized vintage blazer comes in three colorways and goes perfectly with light-wash denim.
This may look like another plaid blazer but it has a few unique details. The denim accents on the blazer gives it a cool, effortless layered look without the extra layers. Cuff the sleeves for the full effect.
It’s a bit of a splurge but a worthwhile investment. This blazer is relaxed so you can wear it with jeans but still has enough structure that you can dress it up with trousers, they have a matching pair or a skirt. If plaid isn’t your thing it comes in black and ivory as well.
Because good style doesn’t always have to be pricey, this under $40 blazer is a steal. One of Target’s many hidden gems, this blazer looks more expensive than it is and you can pick it up on your next trip to the beauty aisle.
Find Your Perfect Fall Blazer
While this comes in five colors that are far more neutral, our pick is this pretty pink that’s not too bright. Pair it with the matching miniskirt for a monochrome look or swap that out for something neutral.
A little more than a pop of color, this red tailored blazer can be pared down with more neutral tones or go all out and add more color with matching shorts in a vibrant red. If red just isn’t your color it also comes in darker tones.
Structured and chic, this two-toned belted blazer is a street-style worthy pick. The faux pearl buttons add a touch of elegance and pair perfectly with trendy pearl earrings.
If you still want that belted look without splurging, this blazer from ASOS is the perfect alternative. The seatbelt style belt goes perfect with jeans and sneakers or boots and trousers and the neutral toned stripes are bit more lively than a basic black blazer.
