How to mix a blazer into different outfits? Read on to learn all styling secrets and outfit ideas.

Ladies, I’m sure we all own a couple of blazers in the closet and don’t know what to do with them. This is a killer wardrobe staple suitable for all occasions and seasons, but not everyone possesses the art of curating blazer outfits. 

For this purpose, I will walk you through stylish attires with blazers in varying colors combined with other clothing garments. You’ll also gain inspo from different celebs who adore blazers as much as we do.

Let’s see what’s in store for us, shall we?

5 Blazer Styling Rules

Before actually seeing the gorgeous blazer outfits for ladies I have chosen for you, it’s important to learn the basic etiquette of styling this timeless clothing item. 

The following tips will give you fashionable insight into mixing and matching different garments to create unique outfits.

Rule #1: Wear cropped blazers with midi skirts

Here’s the first rule – if you’re fond of midi skirts, only pair them with cropped blazers instead of the standard ones. Otherwise, it will just look tacky. I have added pictures to prove my point. 

First up, here’s the standard size that, in fact, looks oversized and gives your figure a disproportionate look:

There’s just no flow in this outfit, right? Also, there is no structure or momentum in the attire, and it’s overall pretty boring. 

But let me show you how much better a cropped blazer appears with the midi skirt:

Do you see the difference?? This attire is perfect if you want to highlight your waistline, creating an illusion of an hourglass figure. By the way, that’s something banana-shaped women especially strive for. 

Rule #2: Opt for a mid-size blazer to hide tummy

Since many females are concerned about their tummy pooch, I have a practical solution – mid-size blazers come to your rescue, as they help create the illusion of a smaller waist.

Let’s see how it can turn out:

This stylish yet practical combination can erase your worries regarding your midsection, so I would recommend it to all apple-shaped ladies who want to hide that stubborn tummy.

Rule #3: Choose high-waisted pants or jeans with a standard-size blazer

Do you only own standard-size blazers? It’s time to learn a new rule – only wear high-waisted jeans or pants with them. 

But why? High-waisted trousers are actually really flattering and can make you look taller and slimmer. So, pairing them with a standard-size blazer balances out the proportions and makes you look put-together.

Let me prove my point with this outfit:

See how great this ensemble appears and looks balanced? On the other hand, here’s what a standard-size blazer looks like with a low-waisted bottom:

The low-waisted skinny jeans erase proportions and make you look frumpy instead. This pants style sits below the natural waistline, creating an unflattering silhouette.

Rule #4: Go for a three-quarter sleeve blazer if you’re a petite size

Petites can also look cute in a blazer, but only if it has three-quarter sleeves – they provide a tailored look that isn’t too bulky.

Take a look to understand what I am talking about:

As we can see, three-quarter sleeve blazers are the perfect solution! They provide just enough coverage to flatter your arms and shoulders while still showing off your tiny, feminine silhouette.

Rule #5: Choose a sweater blazer for casual looks

Let’s be honest: regular blazers have a semi-formal feel which isn’t our goal for casual brunches or parties. For this purpose, opt for a sweater blazer, as they have that simplistic and cozy feel you’re looking for.

Consider something like this:

You may also style a sweater blazer in this way:

Consider teaming a grey sweater blazer with a white T-shirt and leather pants. To add a touch of style to your look, grab a brown bag, and you’re ready to go!

Since we’ve wrapped up the basic rules, it’s time to go for the styling tips.

How to Style a Blazer with Different Clothes?

Ladies, we’re finally ready to head over to outfit ideas. These stylish recommendations will save you from scrolling Instagram or TikTok for hours as I’ve scoured the fashion world to gather these gems.

Very soon, you’ll know how to style different clothing items with the blazers hanging in your closet. 

1) Jeans

A blazer with jeans is a timeless trend that certainly isn’t going anywhere, and I’m here to help you master it.

Here’s what you should remember while choosing jeans with blazers:

  • You can’t go wrong with skinny models. 
  • Avoid baggy jeans. 
  • Choose tailored models. 
  • Dark indigo or black jeans are the best options.

Now it’s time to check out the stylish outfits I’ve prepared for you ladies.

Let’s start with the first one.

And if you’re a fan of ripped jeans, the next outfit is for you:

This distressed look is bang on trend, and the ripped knees add a touch of attitude. The white blazer keeps the attire fresh and summery. Finally, cute heels and a handbag perfectly complete the whole look.

2) Pants

Are jeans not your cup of tea? No problem, as pants are a close alternative since they are equally versatile, as we’ll soon see.

But first, keep these points in mind while choosing pants to go with your blazer:

  • Light-colored chinos are a foolproof option.
  • Grey trousers will work flawlessly with many blazers. 
  • Ensure that the pants are either darker or in the same color spectrum as the blazer. 

Now, time to discover some inspo.

3) Skirts

For my feminine ladies who desire a completely different vibe, nothing works as great as skirts. In my opinion, pleated midis and pencil models are the best partners for blazers. 

Let me show you my first favorite:

4) Dresses 

And now tell me – how many of you know how to ace a blazer with a dress? Allow me to help you in this regard. 

But first, make sure to pair only the following dresses with your blazers:

  • Straight-cut models.
  • Bodycons.
  • Dresses made of thick material. 
  • Knee-length dresses. 

Now let me show you the first outfit option:

Don’t we ladies cherish pastel-hued dresses? There’s no reason why your blazer can’t accompany them. As we can see above, it looks fantastic together! 

5) Shirts

When you have no time to put effort into getting ready but still want to appear put-together, shirts and a blazer are an effortless combo.

Opt for the following models:

  • Corduroy 
  • Flannel 
  • Button-down shirt
  • Polo 
  • Tailored cotton dress shirt 

Excited to see some outfit ideas? Here comes the first one:

If you are looking for a cute and stylish outfit for a Saturday afternoon, try this combination of a baby blue shirt, a plaid blazer, and jeans. It’s comfortable, fashionable, and perfect for lunch with friends or a business meeting.

6) T-shirts

If you have to leave in a hurry, a blazer plus a T-shirt is a killer combo. But first, let’s talk about T-shirt lengths optimal to wear with a blazer. Ideally, the length of the blazer should end at mid to lower crotch. 

On the other hand, avoid T-shirts that are longer than your blazer.

These are my outfit recommendations:

7) Sweaters

You must be wondering, “Can I wear sweaters with blazers?” The answer is yes! In fact, this combination is a great way to stay warm and stylish this season. Keeping this in mind, I’ve shared some outfit ideas to inspire you.

How to Style Blazer Outfits Based on Color

It’s impossible to create enviable blazer outfits without knowing the art of styling blazers in varying shades. Therefore, I’ll explain how to style the primary and not-so-popular blazer colors in the following sections.

And whatever colors your blazer falls into, you’ll be able to style it beautifully. 

1) Black blazers

If you’re unsure of what color of clothes to wear with a black blazer, try a classic neutral like white or ivory.

For instance:

Here we have casual attire: beige chinos, a white turtleneck, and a black blazer. These shades are all neutral, including white sneakers that add a dose of sportiness to this fancy attire. Ultimately, a black blazer always makes a statement. 

Still feeling stuck in a fashion rut? Well, in that case, try pairing your black blazer with other black clothes.

2) Natural colors (brown, beige, green, gray)

Neutral colors are the backbone of any wardrobe, but they can be a little boring on their own. That’s why it’s important to know which shades pair nicely with neutral blazers to add a bit of interest and personality to your look.

Let me inspire you with the first outfit:

3) White blazers

If you’re anything like me, you love a good white blazer -it is professional, chic, and goes with everything. But have you ever wondered which shades of shirts, pants, and shoes pair the best with it?

First, white blazers match perfectly with other white garments, as well as with denim shades, gold, and red details.

Let me prove my point with the following combos.

4) Red and burgundy

If you ask me, red blazers are for risky individuals, but we like to take on a challenge! Remember that red and burgundy blazers adore black, white, and grey colors.

To prove my point, I picked two outfits.

5) Navy-blue blazers 

Navy blue looks great with other neutrals like white, black, and grey. So, if you want a classic and professional look, consider pairing your blazer with a neutral top or bottom.

Try something like this:

Finally, the light buttoned shirt creates a perfect match with the dark blazer, while grey heeled shoes complete the look.

6) Pink and other bright colors

Believe it or not, blazer outfits can also strike a fashion statement in vivid colors, but only if you do it appropriately! 

In fact, various shades go well with bright colors, so it’s almost impossible to go wrong. However, it is best to balance the outfit with white and black pieces.

Let’s first start with the pink and black combo.
