I Love a Good Blazer—Here Are 10 Ways to Wear The Staple This Spring

Gone are the days when the only time you'd dust off your blazer was for a stuffy job interview. Today, blazers are an integral part of our wardrobes, bestowing polish on everything we wear with them—be it a floral dress, a miniskirt or a pair of jeans.

With the power to make you feel stylish and put-together as soon as you slip one on, blazers unsurprisingly trend year-round. Though, in my opinion, their appeal peaks in spring. As we shed our winter wear, blazers become the perfect tran-seasonal cover-up, and make anything you decide to wear with them look more polished in the process. 

Many of the best blazers out there have oversize silhouettes (or can be bought a size up without sacrificing the overall aesthetic), meaning they can be layered over jumpers until temperatures rise. When the weather does warm up, they look sophisticated paired with even the most basic T-shirt and trousers. Case in point: the following looks. I've found 10 incredible spring blazer outfits to try this season. Scroll below to see them and to shop the key pieces to re-create the outfits for yourself.

1. OPT FOR TONAL HUES

Style Notes: Aimee Song is a master of monochromatic dressing, often wearing different tones of one or similar shades top to toe. We think this peach-blazer ensemble is her best interpretation of the look.

Style Notes: Don't feel restricted by the silhouette of your blazer. As Lydia proves, the boxy jacket looks just as great with a belt worn over the top. 

3. KEEP THINGS FRESH

Style Notes: As Loïcka Grâce attests, a white blazer will help breathe new life into your darker wardrobe staples or your trusty denim. 

4. DRESS IT UP

Style Notes: Wearing a blazer over a dress might not seem like a natural pairing, but if it looks half as chic on us as it does on Marissa, we think it's worth trying.

Style Notes: Checked blazers always make a comeback in the winter months but run the risk of feeling too dark come spring. Make like Jen and give them an instant lift with pastel or bright trousers. 

6. OFFSET FANCY PIECES

Style Notes: Satin skirts may feel like after-dark fodder, but with an oversize blazer, they create the ultimate high-low combination. 

7. INVEST IN A SUIT

Style Notes: While not all blazers will come with matching trousers, if they do, we always recommend considering the set as another foolproof and effortless outfit option. 

Style Notes: Fashion people love wearing blazers with minidresses underneath—there’s just something effortless about this look that’s so appealing. Finish with chunky sandals for a casual spin. 

9. LAYER OVER A BRA TOP

Style Notes: Leather blazers still work in spring. As temperatures continue to rise, why not swap out your long-sleeve tops and tees and instead pair your blazer with a bra top?

10. TWEED IS BACK

Style Notes: This season, tweed and bouclé blazers are back on the style agenda, though the styling of them has changed somewhat. Although they look the polished part paired with dresses and skirts, take cues from Jen and wear yours with jeans, a trending chain belt and a basic jersey top.
