We are currently riding the blazer wave. This multipurpose and multicolored article of clothing is a staple piece. Pair it with a skirt, dress, jeans, jeggings, leggings, shorts... I could go on, but I’ll keep it PG-rated. You get the idea! H&M and Zara have all the colors you could imagine, from neon pinks and yellows to subtle mint and taupe colors! This multifunctional jacket could also be worn just about anywhere! Add it to your work attire. Make it your weekend go-to piece. Throw it on when you’re going bar-hopping (21 and over only, please!). There is no need for a bulky coat any longer.
If you want some inspiration on how to style your blazer, then look no further! I’ve picked my favorite celeb looks in all their blazing glory! I’m personally loving the white blazer. You could pair it with leather shorts, like Eva Longoria, or a lace dress like Sarah Jessica Parker. If you choose to model it with a pair of leather pants and pointed toe pumps like the gorgeous Heidi Klum, I don’t blame you!
How about we add some color to your wardrobe? If you’ve been toying with the idea of buying a pink blazer, I give you the green light! This hue compliments just about everyone’s skin tone. Take a look at Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s fabulous outfit: leopard print scarf, pink blazer, and flare jeans... smokin' hot is right! The fab Charlize Theron gives her blazer an edgier look with her leather pants and cap-toe pointed pumps. Both of these looks are fashion knock-outs!
I’m going to push that color card a tad further for you life-of-the-party people. These bold blazers will definitely win the attention of onlookers. Check out the green blazer Jessica Alba is rocking with her wide-leg jeans. Great daytime look, right? You can also try a red blazer with a leopard scarf, skinny jeans, and booties like Beyoncé. Perhaps you have your eyes set on Hilary Duff’s outfit: yellow blazer, scarf, leggings, and shooties. Comfy, casual, and stylish!
Sometimes, it’s best to keep things classic. These celebs sure know how to sport their black and navy blazers! Michelle Williams and Olivia Palermo set the trend with their outfit combinations: blazer, floral dress, and oxford shoes; it’s a must-try look! Kate Middleton keeps it classy with her silk scarf, navy blazer, coral skinny jeans, and ballet flats (see pics at top of page), while Kate Hudson kicks her outfit up a notch with her statement necklace. How about the dreamy Mila Kunis? She pairs her blazer with a nude top, gold tone shorts, and peep toe pumps. Sophisticated yet sexy.
As you can see, there are so many ways to wear a blazer. I hope these celeb-inspired bright ideas ignite your creativity! Be sure to join in on the blazer wearing parade!
