Blazers for Days: 10 Excellent Ways to Wear Your Favourite Jacket
Much like your trusty pair of jeans, blazers never go out of fashion. So where do you start when deciding how to wear yours? You could just go classic and pair a gray checked version with a white T-shirt, jeans, and ankle boots. But then again, there are plenty of classic options around too. Not to mention there are some fabulous bold-coloured jackets that give any outfit a boost of fun.
Then there's the big decision about whether you go for a double-breasted version. Or perhaps you'd rather a blazer that switches up the rules and has a waist-cinching belt. Maybe, though, you want to make a statement and match yours with a pair of trousers. To help navigate this sartorial minefield, we hunted down the best street style blazer looks, and they show just how varied this trend is. Although the allure of the classic trench will still draw us in, the blazer will always be king for making any outfit look sophisticated immediately. Click through our gallery for tips on how to wear your blazer and where to shop our favourite pieces.

Style Notes: If you don't want something so fitted, perhaps oversize is the way to go. Pair with skinnies (or straight-leg jeans) and a pair of flat shoes.
