The humble blazer has seen its status rise from tired officewear to a must-have outfit-elevator over the past few years. The unique appeal of a blazer is that it can totally dictate the silhouette of your outfit. Opt for one with enlarged shoulder pads and a longline fit and you’ve styled yourself a look drenched in ‘80s cool. Alternatively, style your cropped blazer with a high-waisted skirt and your look will scream preppy-chic with hardly any effort involved.
Of course, you can do it like Sienna Miller, Laura Harrier or Emma Watson, who have all styled sharp suit-sets for afternoons out, or take a leaf out of Hailey Bieber's book and wear your tweed blazer with a matching pencil skirt for a cool-girl take on boardroom dressing.
Whatever your personal preference, see below for the ultimate inspiration as we share the chicest ways celebrities and influencers wear their blazers.
1. ELSA HOSK
Style Notes: Elsa Hosk shows us how autumn styling is done in a deliciously oversized pinstriped blazer and chic chunky loafers. For added impact the model kept her accessories monochrome and styled her look with a sleek black bag and matching black shades.
2. LAURA HARRIER
Style Notes: For a chic evening ensemble, look no further than an all-black smoking suit. Style it like Laura Harrier and opt for a blazer with sharp shoulders and a large lapel, and wear it with a partially buttoned silk blouse for maximum impact.
3. HAILEY BIEBER
Style Notes: Hailey Bieber merged business and fashion in her oversized blazer and pencil-skirt set. Leaning into the '80s vibe, she styled her look with a black belt and burgundy court shoes.
4. JASMINE TOOKS
Style Notes: As we move towards autumn/winter, there's no better suiting option than velvet. Soft to the touch, nothing screams luxury like its smooth feel. Wear it like Jasmine Tooks and lose the base layer for a simple but sexy touch.
5. ALEXA CHUNG
Style Notes: Alexa Chung proves a blazer looks just as good with a typically feminine dress as it does with matching trousers as a suit. Styled with a light polka-dot dress and slingback heels, this is how a blazer can work with any item in your wardrobe.
6 SIENNA MILLER
Style Notes: Sienna Miller stole our attention at the 2023 Wimbledon Championships in this Ralph Lauren suit and tonal accessories. Though she wore a full suit, her look felt light, fresh and perfect for the occasion.
7. EMMA WATSON
Style Notes: Emma Watson mixed high and low when she styled a formal suit with casual sandals from The Row and a halterneck vest top from Khaite. Keeping it simple, she opted for black accessories to complement her look.
Style Notes: Assembling the perfect back-to-school look, Zendaya wore her embellished blazer on top of a crisp button-down with blue jeans and heeled ankle boots.
9. KENDALL JENNER
Style Notes: Kendall Jenner played with cuts and shapes when she wore her navy longline blazer with white shorts and black loafers whilst out in New York.
10. KATIE HOLMES
Style Notes: We love Katie Holmes for her elevated casual style, so when she dresses up you know we'll be paying attention. Styling a fit-and-flare blazer with a longline pencil skirt, she gave us evening-outfit inspiration to take us all the way into winter.
