How to Style a Blazer

Hi Everyone!  One of the most classic wardrobe staples I recommend having is also fall's must-have piece, the blazer.  In today's post, I'm sharing with you how I recently styled my black blazer for a work meeting and my white blazer for a day-to-night look.  I have had both blazers in my closet for years so they aren't currently available, but below you'll find my current favorite black and white blazers that are in stock now + the other items I'm wearing as well as Best of Budget options. 


When buying classic wardrobe staples that are on the pricier side, I ask myself:  How versatile will this item be?  Can I wear it for work but also for a night out with jeans?  Can I wear this all year round?  Will it last both in quality and in style?  Both of my blazers are extremely versatile.  They can be dressed up for work with a pencil skirt, draped over my shoulders with a cocktail dress, and worn for a night out with a blouse or tee, skinny jeans and heels.  And the key to wearing white all year round (which I'm a huge fan of), is the fabric.  I don't recommend wearing white linen in the winter, but a heavier cotton weight blazer is perfect even when the temperature drops.  Scroll down for the best sales and promo codes I've rounded up for you going on now.


Have a great week and thanks for reading, xx Erica
