A tailored navy blazer is a timeless staple that can be worn effortlessly with just about anything in your closet. When shopping for your next wear-with-anything blazer, choose one in a classic shape and with minimal embellishments to ensure that the piece will remain stylish for years to come.
Wear a navy blazer with neutral-colored pieces for a classic look. Slip on your blazer over a simple white tank top and white pants for a timeless nautical look. Accessorize with a chunky gold necklace, gold ballet flats and a summery raffia tote bag. For an office-ready outfit, pair your blazer with camel-colored slacks and ladylike accessories – pearl stud earrings, a delicate gold pendant necklace, black patent pumps and a structured black purse.
Create a monotone look by pairing your blazer with separates in matching or complementary blue tones. For an elegant and simple all-navy look, wear your blazer over a silk navy blue blouse. Pair with dark blue jeans, and add brown wedges. A bright white statement necklace and a chunky gold bracelet will pop against the otherwise dark ensemble. If you’d like a greater range of blues, wear your navy blazer over a light blue shirt dress. Complete the classic outfit with camel,-colored chunky heel boots and a soft gold purse.
A tailored navy blue blazer is the perfect way to temper otherwise bold metallics. Use your blazer to make a gold swingy skirt more daytime appropriate. Pair your skirt and blazer with a classic white blouse, a ladylike pearl necklace and nude patent pumps. Or throw your blazer on over a slinky silver cocktail dress for some extra coverage. Roll up your blazer sleeves slightly for a more relaxed, party-ready look. Finish the look with simple, understated accessories – black strappy evening sandals, a sleek black clutch, and diamond or CZ stud earrings with a matching tennis bracelet.
Tone down an outfit built around vibrant brights or loud patterns with your complementary navy blazer. Wear your blazer over a vividly patterned sundress to make the outfit more work-appropriate. Match accessories to the sophisticated tone of your blazer – nude patent pumps, a structured brown bag and ladylike stud earrings will complete the look perfectly. For a more casual outfit, wear your blazer with bright red skinny jeans and a teal blouse. The dark blazer will tie the two colors together nicely, preventing the bright look from being overwhelming. Keep jewelry and accessories neutral – a simple white necklace, nude ballet flats and a nude envelope clutch are all you need.
