How to Elevate Basic Outfits with a Blazer

There is nothing quite like a good blazer and jean combo – even in the summer.  A blazer can pull together the most basic of outfits and elevate it.  Remember that third piece that I always bring up here and there? Well, a blazer is one of my go-to third pieces because it is so easy to incorporate into just about any outfit.  If you are comfortable enough with your style personality to shake it up a bit, you can even pair a blazer with sweatpants – a post on that coming up soon.


I went ALL the way in the back of my closet to pull out this cobalt blue blazer from Arden B. that I got several years ago.  I paired it with my favorite Express distressed jeans and American Apparel white body suit.  I finished the look off with my Quay sunglasses and these Justfab floral sandals.  And there you have it, my style uniform is complete.  Having a go to “uniform” that can be modified and altered for the season and occasion is essential in any fashionista/o’s wardrobe because it makes dressing for any occasion easier while staying true to your personality (brand) and avoiding a fashion faux pas that can arise from ill-planned outfits and what I call trend-hopping (more on that later).

How do you elevate your basic outfits?
