When it comes to growing your must-have wardrobe staples, it’s safe to say that that list can be never-ending. From that list, what caught my eye is the trust blazer. In a plethora of iterations and suitable for a variety of occasions, blazers, according to me, are one of the most versatile pieces of clothing. What’s more, the phenomena of an ill-fitted blazer has almost vanished. From oversized pieces to one that’s exactly your size, you can style this wardrobe staple as and how you want. Think cropped blazers, blazer dresses and more, the revamps just keep getting better!
If you ask me, it’s a cakewalk to style any outfit with a blazer. You can throw it on a basic t-shirt + jeans or add a western twist to a traditional outfit or simply notch up your workwear ensemble. But no matter how easy it may seem, sometimes we all need a hand in styling it the right way. And for that, look no further than our bloggers and influencers who have incorporated this wardrobe staple in a whole bunch of ways and looks. From an eventful day to a party-ready outfit to the days you have no fashion inspiration, these looks will serve you with a lesson or two on how to elevate an outfit with a blazer.
Here’s a look at 6 different ways our favourite influencer style a blazer:
1. Santoshi Shetty
Dressed in a simple denim skirt and a B&W top, Santoshi played with her otherwise basic outfit by teaming it with a double-breasted, white blazer. The blazer instantly made the whole look chicer, and has given me an idea for my next airport look!
2. Riya Jain
A good pair of trousers teamed with a pretty blouse may be good to go for a fun night out with your girlfriends. But, throwing an oversized blazer to complete the look may just put you in the right sartorial spotlight!
3. Komal Pandey
Even party-ready outfits have a whole bunch of categories under them. Like if you are headed to a fun, formal evening or a dinner with your S/O and have picked a gorgeous but plain slip dress for the occasion, teaming it with a blazer might just help you grab the right attention. Let Komal show you how it’s done!
4. Aashna Shroff
We agree, there is nothing more comfortable like a combination of a plain white tee and jeans to go about your day! However, styling it with a blazer will guarantee a chic upgrade and still help retain the comfort factor.
5. Juhi Godambe
I love how Juhi’s ensemble is the perfect example of a desk-to-drinks outfit. The look is equal parts fun, formal and comfortable. The tee, wide-legged pants and the houndstooth patterned blazer will take you from a busy day at work to a fun night at a bar.
6. Mitali Sagar
Want to jump on the bandwagon of wearing cycling shorts outside of the gym but not sure how? Take a cue on how Mitali from House of Misu aced the trend by teaming her look with an oversized blazer!
