I love blazer looks. The outfits are always looks so crisp and sharp and can make the most casual of outfits look pulled together. With spring around the corner, I am looking forward to breaking mine out and wearing them a variety of ways. In this post, I am going to show how you can create work to weekend blazer looks using the one blazer for both outfits.
Versatility is so important when it comes to having a workable wardrobe. If you can take one piece and style it a variety of ways you will get more value, so check out the looks below with the casual look on the right and the work outfit on the left to show you how you can take some of your favorite blazers and wear them to work and on more casual days.
Work to Weekend Blazer Looks
One thing I love about bouclé blazers is, depending on the styling, they can look very elegant and refined while also creating more of a dichotomy look with jeans and a casual top.
In the looks above, I started with this bouclé blazer from J. Crew and created a work outfit using these slim navy trousers from Reiss, crepe wrap shell from Ann Taylor, navy flats from Calvin Klein, navy and gold studs from Lele Sadoughi and taupe bag from MICHAEL Michael Kors. For a more casual ensemble, the same blazer was used with these skinny jeans from Lucky Brand, tan tank from Theory, dangle earrings from Max & Chloe, nude sandals from Sam Edelman and the same bag that I used for the work outfit.
Not all blazers have to be made of woven fabric. In these two looks, I started with a cardigan/jacket hybrid, aptly called a “jardigan” from MM. Lafleur. On the left, I used it to top off this beautiful burgundy dress from Reiss and finished the look for work with a pair of black heels from Corso Como, black and gold hexagon necklace from LOFT and black and burgundy bag from Via Spiga.
On the right, I used the same blazer for a weekend look and styled it with a striking black and white tunic top from French Connection, skinny pants from J. Crew, Judith Jack reversible hoops, black booties from Franco Sarto and the same bag as used in the work look.
Mint green is still a popular color and you’ll probably be seeing it a lot in the stores this spring. If the color is too light for you, try anchoring it with darker shades, like I did in the work look on the left using this navy sheath dress from Theory that I styled with this blazer from Banana Republic. I finished the outfit with a pair of nude flats from Nine West, tan bag from Foley & Corinna and cream seaglass necklace from Bauble Bar.
For a casual look, the same blazer can be easily popped over your favorite denim outfits, but also works great with khaki. I used this pair from Fabrizio Gianni and added this navy and tan printed top from Modcloth. The outfit is finished with a tan pair of wedges from Vince Camuto, Liz Palacios filigree hoops and the same tan bag as used in the work outfit.
Using this soft pink blazer from Boden, I created these two soft blazer looks. Pink and olive is a favorite color combination of mine. Well, actually, I love any color combination that includes olive. For the work outfit, I styled this pink blazer with these olive pants and worked tonally with the pink using these burgundy flats. For the finishing touches, I added these Kanupriya studs and blush bag from Tory Burch.
To create a casual look with this blazer, I added a grey v-neck t-shirt, white skinny jeans from Zara, blush suede loafers from J. Crew, statement necklace from Stella & Dot and the blush bag that was used in the work outfit.
A blazer can be a great way to top off a work dress, like I did here layering this olive blazer from Theory over this orange dress from J. Crew. The outfit looks summer-professional with these tan heeled sandals from Coach, cognac bag from Lauren Ralph Lauren and mix metal earrings from LOFT.
For the casual outfit, I styled the same blazer with a pair of boyfriend jeans, red linen pocket tee and tan suede booties from Dolce Vita. I finished the look with a Banana Republic cuff, printed scarf from Halogen and the same cognac bag.
You can create so many different blazer looks with just a few in your wardrobe. Use them as professional work toppers, as outerwear pieces as the weather gets warm and to make your more casual looks sharper.
