A key wardrobe staple for so many women over the last few decades, the classic blazer offers a timeless, versatile trend that can be styled in an array of different ways. Inspired by traditional menswear designs, blazers showcase a structured, masculine silhouette that is super-sophisticated and typically crafted using high-quality, durable materials, making it a smart, reliable jacket to incorporate into your outfits all year round.
As they are so popular all over the world, there are a wide variety of blazer styles out there for you to choose from. Whether you opt for a smart, cropped, longline, belted, plain, patterned, or even leather blazer, it is guaranteed to make you feel chic and put-together. However, knowing which garments and accessories to pair them with can be a challenge, especially when you’re trying out a brand new style. Here at Yumi, we have a gorgeous range of women’s blazers available in our collection, so we know a thing or two when it comes to styling them! Read on to find out more about our three favourite ways to wear women’s blazers and try them out for yourself.
Go smart-casual with jeans or trousers
While women’s blazers are often seen as a go-to garment for a smart, structured outfit, it’s also easier than ever to dress down your statement jacket for a more refined, off-duty look that is perfect to wear for anything from a last-minute lunch date to a trip to the supermarket. Whether your chosen blazer incorporates neutral tones or an even brighter hue, adding in a pair of your favourite jeans, trousers or shorts to complement or contrast with it allows you to create the perfect blend of smart-casual style that is extremely flattering and on-trend.
Smarten up your casual everyday wardrobe by pairing a neutral or pastel coloured blazer with a pair of blue vintage wash jeans and white trainers for an effortlessly fashionable daytime look that is sure to attract plenty of compliments. For an evening look, it’s just as easy to look your very best by wearing your blazer with a pair of dark denim jeans or leather leggings along with your go-to high-heels to achieve a glamorous ensemble that is super-stylish. Our selection of women’s trousers has plenty of neutral options that can be teamed with a huge array of jeans and trousers, making them a must-have for your year-round wardrobe.
Throw on over a dress or skirt
For those who prefer a more feminine look when it comes to their wardrobe, there’s nothing better than teaming a statement blazer with a mini, midi or maxi dress or skirt to add a softer edge to your structured jacket. Pairing it with a floaty shirt dress allows you to easily change up your outfit from day to night while also ensuring that you’re always prepared, whatever the weather brings. For an elegant evening look that is sure to impress, try wearing a flattering bodycon dress underneath a neutral or bright blazer to create a striking outfit that you’ll feel amazing in. Choose between casual sandals, comfortable trainers and smart heels to transform your look in an instant.
When it comes to colour, there’s no end to the combinations you can choose. While contrasting neutrals and bright colours are a reliable way to built your outfit, you can also use clashing shades to stand out from the crowd, from neon hues to quirky patterns. Accessorize using your latest handbag and gold or silver jewellery to achieve a glamorous, eye-catching look. Here at Yumi, we offer a gorgeous collection of women’s dresses that is sure to have a style that is perfect for you.
Keeping it simple? There are many blazers out there that also provide the option of matching trousers, allowing you to create a stylish suit. A staple for your working week as well as an evening out, the timeless aesthetic and striking style of a full suit is sure to get you noticed. If you’re going for an understated look, try pairing a black blazer and trousers with a contrasting top alongside a brightly coloured bag or shoes to incorporate a gorgeous pop of colour. For a more show-stopping look for a night on the town, go for a brightly coloured hue such as mint green, sky blue or shocking pink teamed with a pair of high-heels.
