In the last few years, blazers have become some of the biggest staples in our closets. They’ve become the throw on jacket, the statement piece, and the piece that dresses up an entire outfit without much thought and effort.
There are so many styles of blazers: oversized or tailored, leather or linen, solid or patterned… You could have a thousand blazers and there will always be space in your closet for more with how versatile they are and how different each of them are from each other. Your blazer outfit ideas are endless, but I’ve collected 51 of my favorite ideas for you here.

What Should You Wear With A Blazer?
My initial answer isn’t super helpful. In short, I would say that you could and should wear anything with a blazer. The world is your oyster to play around with. But there are a few tips to creating the needed symbiosis for this kind of outfit building.
While you can really use a blazer with any outfit and layer over anything, there are certain aesthetics and pieces that really are going to go well together to make this outfit something great.
There are two main styles when it comes to blazers, that really incorporate this kind of look and make it something that you can really bring into your style.
Clean and chic is the go to, for starters. If you’re looking to work your blazer into your outfit, you cannot and will not go wrong with the matching pants or similar, and a plain white tee tucked in. You can pair this with heels or plain white sneakers, and you have a perfect classic look. A coordinating color silk mini skirt with a button down, or even a basic silk slip dress. These pieces are beautiful basics that elevate an outfit on their own, and adding a blazer just makes it ten times better than before.
Chic can be defined as many things, but to put it in pretty simple terms, I think that chic is best described as elevated basics. It’s a certain style, but with elegance. And a dose of being fashion forward.
It’s simple really, dressing chic is all about class and style combined.
The next style that really effortlessly works for a blazer is prep style. Preppy outfits and plaid mini skirts are an invitation for a blazer– and we all know exactly how to layer those.
Preppy is reminiscent of the prep-school styles that came from the popular uniforms and outfits that were commonly worn to school in the upper and upper-middle classes. There’s reasons that eco class matters in the definition, and that’s usually because it delivers a different version of the school uniform. Mary Jane shoes and pearl earrings are where the classic preppy look evolves, instead of the southern preppy. Both are great, but the prep-school style popular on the East Coast really has blazers a part of the look already.
Preppy and classic are only slightly different from each other– Preppy is a little more classic while chic has more of a fashion forward edge to it. There’s something so fun about a preppy moment, and we love to see a blazer added to an outfit in a really preppy way.
Outside of these two styles, any outfit can really look good with a blazer, if the colors and proportions work well together. The only aesthetic that doesn’t truly work with a blazer is western wear, but we’ve still seen it done when people blend the blazer trend with the cowboy boot trend. It’s possible, but not an easy go to!
What Hairstyles Look Good With A Blazer?
How you wear your hair with your blazer will matter a lot when it comes to styling.
This is such a chic piece, that a hairstyle to match is key to really pulling the outfit together.
While you can totally go for the crowd pleasing beach waves, there are some other fun ways you can style your hair that might vibe with the urban aesthetic a bit more.
As we know, the off duty model bun or a slicked back pony are some of the coolest hairstyles that we’re seeing all over social media right now. These are my number one picks for how to style your hair with a blazer, as they’re trendy, chic, and fashion forward. However, there are plenty of other cool hairstyles that work too.
A sleek straight look is always just as cool, and you can never go wrong with natural hair of any style. With a blazer, it makes the whole look appear laid back and relaxed. Like you’re cool without trying too hard. And I love this look, especially for a blazer outfit!
Basically, I would just avoid anything too basic with the blazer to keep it from looking like a trend piece that you just threw on. To look fashion forward make intentional choices with all of the styling elements and you’ll have an incredible look!
