I recently decided that I am going to be the kind of person that wears blazers all the time. Ever since doing the research for my French girl outfits, I’ve just fallen in love with the look of an oversize blazer. I think it’s such an easy way to look a little bit more put together and structured. Because of that, I ordered an oversize blazer from Everlane because I’ve also been obsessed with Everlane lately. I specifically loved the pattern of this blazer, because instead of being your typical gray plaid, it’s gray herringbone. I think it looks a little bit more unique than the plaid blazer that everyone has and the fit of it is perfectly oversize, without needing to size up. I’m also impressed with the quality! It’s a wool blazer, but it’s surprisingly lightweight and not itchy like I expected it to be, which means I can even wear it in the spring as well as through the fall and winter. Basically, because of this blazer, I’m becoming a blazer person and I’m so excited about it. Keep on reading to see how I styled it!
For this first outfit, I took my newest and favorite pair of mid wash Jamie jeans from Topshop and decided to pair them with this navy t-shirt from Something Navy (similar). I like that the base of this outfit is monochromatic and not your typical pairing that you would see with a gray blazer. I added my white Adidas sneakers to keep the look casual and I love how it turned out! This is the outfit I would probably wear the most often out of all three!
I found this really cute blazer at Mango recently on sale (!!!) and got it partially for work, partially because I had always wanted to try out styling a brown corduroy blazer. Since everyone seems to really like my posts where I style one item four ways, I thought this would be the perfect piece to try it out with. It’s sort of a classic item, but sort of not so I thought it would be fun to see what other ways I can style it this season. I’ll link as many items as I can below and please don’t forget to subscribe to my blog and follow me on Instagram @karenmauritzenn!
One of my favorite ways to style the color brown is with the color white and I thought this blazer was the perfect addition to this outfit. The slouchy-ness of the jeans and the tank are a perfect contrast to the structure of the blazer. Paired with some medium brown accessories it’s such an great outfit because it has volume, color, and texture to keep things interesting! The blazer that I’m wearing throughout this post is linked here for you. My jeans sold out during the Zara sale a few weeks ago, but my tank from Old Navy, shoes from Target and belt from Urban Outfitters are all still available!
This is actually the outfit I had in mind when I bought this blazer. I bought this to wear for work because sometimes I have to wear more than just jeans and a sweater! I found these brown plaid trousers at Target and thought they were so cool but I knew they needed a very specific kind of blazer to go with it. I was sort of at a lost until I saw this one and thought they would complement each other really well! I just added a white turtleneck from Target underneath, but this would look great with a cami or a button down or even a t-shirt under too. I love a monochromatic look so of course I had to pair some brown heels from Steve Madden (similar) with it also!
This one is probably a little bit funky, but I love the idea of putting really rich colors together. This brown blazer is a very rich brown and I think it would pair so well with this bright bubblegum pink sweater from Something Navy (similar) and these mid wash ankle jeans from Abercrombie (similar). I know everyone is begging for the dad sneaker trend to be done with this year, but apparently I’m just getting started with it. I’m pairing my Fila Disruptor sneakers with this for a really easy cool girl outfit.
