Yesterday, I talked about how I was Using Color To Transition From Winter To Spring. Color is an important part of my wardrobe, but I also want to make sure that most of my items can be worn in multiple ways. Sometimes the more unique an item is, the harder it is to style it differently. Today, I’m showing you How To Style A Blazer Casual Or Dressy so you can get more wear for your money.
Styling a Casual or Dressy Blazer? Let’s Start With Casual
I bet most of you immediately think of a “dressy” outfit as soon as you hear the word, blazer. We tend to associate a blazer as part of a suit, which is worn for work and in a dressy manner. However, adding a blazer to a pair of jeans and a white t-shirt doesn’t make the outfit dressy, but it does dress up the look. This is what I call elevated casual style, and it is my preferred way to dress.
The Desert Mauve Shawl Collar Blazer is a gorgeous muted color. It looks great with so many colors, I think it is a neutral color that I’ve never considered before. The blazer has an almost silky feeling, and I love the way it looks and feels. The blazer is lined, but it is also lightweight which is perfect for spring. I’m wearing a medium which fits me great.
You can see the longer length of the blazer here. It hits me a little below my hips, and this is the length I prefer.
I’ve styled these Trouser Flare Jeans a couple of times before, and they are starting to get limited in sizes. These jeans ran big, and I had to size down from my usual size 8 to a size 6. I love trouser jeans since they are a little dressier than normal jeans, and they give me the elevated casual look I like. Here are a few other trouser jeans in case your size has already been sold out.
Styling a Casual or Dressy Blazer? Changing one item makes this look dressy.
Like yesterday, I only switched out one item, but that made a huge difference in my look. Changing out the trouser jeans for a Smocked Floss Midi Skirt took the look from casual to dressy. Even though I keep the same blazer and t-shirt, people won’t notice that it’s the same since the overall look is so different.
I’m wearing the same white V-Neck tee that I wore yesterday’s post. I don’t know about you, but I usually need to replace my white tees yearly. Since this tee is under $8, you can afford to buy a couple of them to last you the entire year.
The Smocked Floss Midi Skirt is so pretty and feminine. I’m thrilled that you can see the gold sheen in this photo. The skirt had gold metallic threads that ran through it, and my phone was able to pick up some of their reflections. The skirt has an elastic smocked waistband that you can wear as is, or cover with a belt. It is a chiffon material that has a polyester lining. I’m wearing a medium size and it fits me great.
I wore the Beige Women’s Wedge Sandals with both outfits. I took these sandals with me to Miami, and since they went with everything, I found myself wearing them often. Wedge shoes are the easiest to wear of all heels, so I wear them the most. I’m wearing my usual size 9, and these fit TTS.
Styling a Casual Blazer or Dressy can easily be done in your shopping closet. Which look was your favorite?
