The single breasted, black, grey, or navy men’s blazer is the garment with the Midas touch. It goes with practically anything and adds an effortless chic to everything it is worn with. The blazer is therefore an indispensable item for any man. But the same ways of wearing a blazer may inject monotony into outfits after a while, since the blazer comes in mostly dark, heavy colours. Here are 7 ways to style a blazer for different looks and occasions.
With A Cardigan
Blazers are not unlikely to be paired with a cardigan. But men usually wear them with a merino or jersey cardigan. Add some masculine flair to your work attire by wearing your favourite blazer with a knit, button down cardigan.
With a V-neck
For many men, pairing a standard navy or gray blazer with a V-neck sweater is everyday work ensemble. Without compromising on your work dress code, you can add a stylish twist to this familiar outfit by experimenting with sweaters in different hues. How about orange? Or olive? How about teal? Your blazer style is going to go with them all.
With a Hoodie
A classic navy blazer goes with anything. For instance, when all your shirts and cardigans happen to be in the laundry and all you have near at hand is a hoodie for men, your blazer can save the day. Just slip it on over a hoodie and you’re good to go. To complement the navy of the blazer, make sure your pants are in a dark shade.
With White Jeans
White and navy make a perfect contrast, reason enough for you to pair your navy blazer with your white jeans. Team the combo with a long sleeve tee in a neutral hue or a plaid shirt tucked in. You can also add a chunky leather belt to up the style quotient.
With Baggy Jeans
Baggy jeans are back in fashion. To add some style to your lazy weekend look, team a pair of distressed, medium rise denims with a t-shirt in a colourful hue, and seal the look with a navy blazer for men. You might also add your rugged boots for a cooler look.
With A Sporty Jacket
Jackets and blazers are often worn together not only when it’s too cold but also to cut a chic statement. A denim jacket or a track jacket both work well with your wardrobe staple baby blazer. Make sure the jacket is in an interesting colour to make it stand out against the blazer.
With A Polo Shirt
Polo shirts are allowed as work wear in offices with a casual dress code and a blazer is a very common outerwear with polo. To spice things up a little, team your navy blazer with an unusual, eye-catching polo. Like tangerine. Or maybe neon green. Bright colours look zingy against navy, a welcome change from the everyday hues.
You can also style your blazer with fun accessories like sunglasses, scarves, and hats. This versatile outerwear looks fantastic with almost everything.
