How to Style a Black Blazer

TWO WAYS TO STYLE A BLACK BLAZER

Having a black blazer in your wardrobe is a must. Not only are they stylish and chic but they are easy and fun to style. Black blazers are worth the investment because you can get so much wear out of them and can easily style them with multiple outfits.

This blazer is from JCPenny. Can you believe it? It was such a steal. I think I paid $40. The blazer has ties on the side which gives it a nice detail. This one is in the size medium. It’s a little big on the sleeves but rolling them up helped to complete the look I was going for.

The top is a white bell sleeve top I purchased from Forever 21. It has a ruffle collar with a black tie. This top would be perfect to wear with a pencil skirt or even a cute pair of straight leg slacks. I purchased it around two years ago and finally got a chance to wear it again. Wearing a white top with the blazer really makes the blazer stand out and highlights all the details in both the blazer and the shirt.

My jeans are from JCPenny as well. I really love the distressed ripped jeans trend which is one of my favorite styles. These are boyfriend style jeans which makes the fit a little bigger. I cuffed the jeans at the bottom but they can easily be let out for a different style.

These nude shoes are from Lolashoetique. I love these shoes. They are the perfect nude color to pretty much be paired with any and everything. The pointed toe heels are a classic and look great with the blazer. I paired the outfit with a leopard print clutch from Charming Charlie.

The second way I styled the blazer is with a graphic t-shirt and tennis shoes. The blazer is so versatile it really does look great with almost anything.

The graphic t-shirt is from Forever 21. It says “I am not young enough to know everything”. Something about pairing the graphic t-shirt with the blazer makes this outfit instantly look more classy and dressed up.

These black jeans are from JCPenny. I really love their jeans as you can see. I don’t know who their designer is but bless them for making stylish and affordable jeans for the everyday working woman. In the past, I would never have thought to buy jeans from JCPenny but over the last two years I started purchasing my work slacks from the store and realized they have a great choice of jeans.

My shoes are vans. I love vans. These are my second pair and girl you need some in your life. The vans are a cute flat tennis shoe. They are comfortable, affordable and have so many styles and colors.  As you can see I wear a lot of black and grey so these were a perfect color combo for me. I also love the polka dot detail.

Accessories are stud earrings and gold bracelet from Charming Charlie and Alex & Ani bracelets. I linked some similar items below for you to shop.
