Blazers have been one of my favorite trends as of late! I love how they can be styled in such a casually sophisticated way, and how they make an outfit look absolutely effortless! Although they have been a big trend this past fall and winter, I still see them sticking around this Spring. I have even seen such chic ways they could be styled with denim shorts for Summer on Pinterest (like how cute does that sound?). I am here today to chat with you about how you can style your checked (or really any) blazer right now. I have two examples of how I have styled mine with photos, and then I am going to also talk about other lovely options (they just won’t have a coordinating photo).
First of all, the secret to toning down the office feel of your blazer is to pair it with casual pieces. As you will see in the two outfits I put together, I wore my favorite girlfriend denim and my holy grail pointed-toe black booties (two of my fave casual pieces).
For the first outfit below, I kept it very simple. I paired my checked blazer with a basic white-tee (mine is long-sleeved because I can use all the layers I can get right now), my girlfriend denim, and black booties. This look is causal, but still very put together. Adding some delicate layered jewelry and a round black purse would make it even better!

For the second outfit that I put together below, I was just thinking about layering! Getting creative with layering is one of my favorite things to do this time of year, and this outfit is a good example of it! This outfit is pretty much the same as the one from above, but I wanted to show how layering over (or under) your blazer can completely transform your outfit! To add a pop of color, a touch of warmth, and a whole lot of “chicness”, I added my favorite blush faux fur coat. This is the perfect way to keep warm, but still look cute at the same time! I also love how the blazer peeks through to show its pattern.

Other casual ways to style your blazer would be with a graphic tee. A sweet and delicate way to style your blazer this way would be to find a graphic tee that has feminine colors (maybe a gray and blush combo). Pair that tee with a great pair of light wash denim, light-colored mules or heeled booties, and layered delicate jewelry. I think even a band t-shirt would look so cool layered underneath a checked blazer with some high-waisted jeans and some casual sneakers or white booties! How totally (I do not use this word often but,) RAD would that look?!
Another great way to style a blazer would just be rested over the shoulders. This way of styling the blazer gives a casual and laid back look. If I was doing this, I would style it over a cream sweater with ruffle details, slightly tucked into a pair of black high-waisted jeans and blush heeled mules!
These are just a few of my favorites ways to style blazers in a casual way right now! If you have been loving the blazer trend I hope this gives you some inspo on how to style your’s! Hope you all are having an amazing week! Thanks for stopping by, Lovely!!
