Who's Wearing What

A Styling Session With Rosie On Ways To Wear Your Blazer

by Emma Menteath, Editorial Lead

If there’s one item every girl should own in their wardrobe – no matter the season – it’s a tailored blazer. Whether you opt for an oversize, cropped or fitted style, the blazer is a versatile piece that can be worn for work, nights out and even your grocery run.

We’ve turned to Rosie Huntington-Whitely for the ultimate blazer styling inspiration, a girl who proves to us that the blazer is a true must-have.

1. Blazer And Jeans

A pair of well fitted jeans and a tailored blazer is an effortless pairing that you can never go wrong with. Rosie keeps it easy with a simple white tee and two-tone courts. But really, anything goes with this combo.

2. Head-To-Toe Tonal

One of the season’s must-try trends is head-to-toe in one colour, particularly tonal. The trick is to play around with various shades or textures to keep the outfit interesting. We suggest matching your trousers to your blazer, layering your blazer over a textured knit and accessorising with must-have shoes and bags.

3. 2-Mile Dressing

Update – and upgrade – the sweats you wear when you pop out to do your groceries or your Saturday hair appointment with an oversized blazer. It’s an easy way to smarten up your look so you don’t look like you should still be at home on your sofa.

4. Blazer And Bra

For a daring night out look layer your blazer over a cute bralet. Button up your blazer for a little more coverage and finish off the look with smokey eyes and jewellery.

5. Match Your Blazer To Your Trousers

For the ultimate get-ready-in-5-minutes look opt to match your trousers to your blazer. No standing in front of your wardrobe post shower, dripping water on the floor trying to decide what to wear for work – by matching your blazer to your trousers, you’re cutting out the indecision with a winning formula. Trust us, it works.

6. Night Out

Rosie stuns us again in her blazer and satin skirt combo – a great look for a night out when you feel like wearing something other than jeans and a nice top. Finish off the look with strappy heels and a clutch.

7. Wear It In Winter

One of the best things about having a favourite blazer in your wardrobe is the fact that you can wear it all year long. Just layer up in winter with a roll neck and boots and you're good to go.

8. Be Bold!

Play around and have fun with your blazer choice, there’s nothing wrong with opting for a bold colour like Rosie. Wear as a separate during the day and for a bold night out, match your trousers to your blazer.

9. A Cropped Blazer

As much as we (and everyone else on Instagram) love an oversized blazer, a cropped fitted blazer is a great choice for work. Style with trousers and heels for a ‘taking-care-of-business’ look or dress it down with sneakers.

10. Keep It Casual

The blazer may have originated from the suit but that doesn’t mean you can’t dress it down. Style your blazer in a causal way with a pair of dark jeans, a simple tee and boots. We love Rosie’s addition of styling of bum bag with her blazer.

11. A Belted Blazer

Looking for a way to dress up your blazer for a night out? Why not belt it and accentuate your waistline? An hourglass shape looks great on everyone. Red lips and clutch in hand, you’ll be ready to conquer the night.
