How do I dress down my work blazers?

I have a ton of blazers in my closet that I no longer wear for work, however, I would really like to wear them. How do I dress down my work blazers?  



Hi Kathy!

That is a great question! Blazers are very versatile, especially ones with good structure, or shape. They can be a work staple, but also are great for a lunch with the girls or a night on the town. The easiest way to dress down a blazer is to pair it with jeans. I love cropped blazers for this look. A shorter blazer with jeans is a bit trendier and in a fun color can be just the casual look you are going for. Add a bohemian touch to a cropped blazer by wearing a loose chiffon camisole underneath. Another way to give your blazer an everyday look is to wear it with shorts or ankle pants. This look tends to be a preppier look. Add graphic prints to make sure it isn't too stuffy looking!

Happy shopping,
