In need of some ideas on ways to wear a black blazer? If you are, then it’s time to dust off that black blazer of yours and rework it to take full advantage of its possibilities! From casual chic to ready for work, the ideas are endless. Let’s get into some of them!

15 Ways to Wear a Black Blazer

1. black blazer + graphic tee
Here I bring you edgy chic. Not totally edgy? Not totally chic? Here’s a good in-between. Pair the blazer with a graphic tee, leopard heels, and a pretty necklace. The leopard heels take it for a spin on the wild side, while the necklace keeps it pretty. The graphic tee is just a fun unexpected twist!

2. blazer + slouchy v neck + flats
With a gray tee and basic flats, this outfit feels very simple, but in a good way. Sometimes the best things are simple! Add some dainty jewelry and a purse and you’re good to go.

3. blazer + slouchy tee + sneakers
Just by switching out the shoes from the outfit above, we created another look! This look is really comfy without sacrificing style one bit. Ditch those yoga pants because now you have a nice “running errands on Saturday” outfit!

4. blazer + button down shirt + scarf + oversized sunglasses + sneakers
What says ” I’m a celebrity- no photos please” more than a chic blazer, a huge scarf, and oversized sunglasses? 😉 I love this chic look. P.S- I wonder how many times I say “chic” in a blog post?

5. blazer + button down shirt + scarf + oversized sunglasses + flats
Need to go somewhere semi-fancy and not sure if sneakers will do? Simply change them out for flats and you have a polished and chic look!

6. blazer + white button-down + heels
Wearing a blazer with a button-down is pretty standard…or is it? Wear it with jeans instead of black pants to switch it up a bit. Cuff those jeans for something different! Instead of wearing it tucked in, play around with it. I like the unique way of “some in, some out.” This is where my husband says, “Umm…is your shirt supposed to be like that?” 😉 The answer is YES!

7. blazer + white tee + booties
Brown, black, and white. Basic colors. Not so basic outfit. These booties make it more casual and fall-appropriate.

8. blazer + white tee + flats
Is it another basic color combo or a canvas for some magic? Magic, always! Dress it up with some accessories! Do you have a purse that stands out? Sunglasses? Add one…or both!

9. blazer + print dress
A solid blazer is a perfect way to add some balance to a printed outfit. Plus the black color “anchors” it. Do you have a crazy print you’re just dying to try out but unsure how it will look? Try pairing it with a black blazer!
