I’m sure there’s barely any lady that hasn’t got at least one blazer in her wardrobe. For me, I’d like to describe them as the new ‘jeans’. Here’s what I mean. We all get to pair almost anything with jeans, right? Cotton, chiffon, silk, leather, and our very own Ankara.

Blazers work in almost any environment; interview sessions, romantic dates, business meetings, church services, and more. One interesting thing about them is that they make you feel protected/secure, thereby, boosting your confidence. Right? When next you put on a blazer, observe yourself so you understand what I mean. Some ladies think they can only wear theirs to the office and nowhere else. Well, I’ve got up to 6 ways you can wear your blazer, whether for business or leisure:

1. Over a dress: Got a cocktail party coming up? Or don’t know what to put on for next church service? How about throwing a blazer on that sparkly dress? Pair them up with a pair of sleek stilettoes and you’ll look more glamorous than ever. It doesn’t really matter the design of your dress; be it ankara, patterned, or plain, you’re good to go. This one, I particularly love.

2. With a Maxi: Classic meets modern when you pair a blazer (preferably plain, maybe black) with your maxi skirt or maxi gown.

3. With Jeans: This one is the regular chic style and quite easy to pull off. I’m sure almost every lady knows this very well. It’s suitable for any event; day out with the girls or night out with your man. All you need are your wedge shoes and clutch bag. Perfecto! Some of us like to go a little over the edge with their jeans. So don’t be afraid to work it out with a pair of distressed or faded jeans. Yeah, don’t forget to pull down your hair for a sassier look.

4. With Shorts: This look is suitable, most especially for a night out with your man. Wear it on a thin body top or tank top; even as a top on its own and hold it together with a tummy belt. Team the outfit up with a cross-body bag and there, you’re free to move around comfortably and have fun. A pair of sandals would be a nice match with the entire outfit, but if you’d like to give it a little more edge then try a pair of pumps.

5. With a Skirt: If you can pair it with shorts, then why not a skirt? Be it pencil, mini, a-line, or straight skirt, a blazer will completely transform your look to elegant.

6. With Skinnies: Wear your blazer with a pair of skinny pants and a loose top. For a relaxed and laid-back moment, get into a pair of flat sandals or ballet flats and you’re ready to chill out for the day. Don’t forget to accessorize properly; bangles, necklaces and so on.
