Meeting With Your Boss
A sassy, sharp blazer adds just the right amount of "take me seriously" cred to a colorful circle skirt and ladylike top. Paired with a cherry-red satchel, manageable ankle-strap heels, and simple earrings, this jacket-and-skirt combo can take you from a client lunch to happy hour without skipping a beat.
Big Night Out
Most of us have at least one dress that's only brought out for special occasions. Whether your twice-a-year frock is shiny, sequined, or super-short, a structured blazer can tone it down enough for a regular night out. Top your statement dress with a tailored jacket, add tights for warmth, and swipe on a bright pink shade for a pop of color. Cheeky leopard ankle boots season the look with a dash of quirk.
If your New Year's resolution was to step it up in the off-duty style department, then you'll want to commit this equation to memory: cool jacket + sweater + leather = easy win. In this case, a sleek blazer takes your standard tunic-and-leggings to the next level. We recommend pushing up the sleeves, slipping on some cooler-than-school high-tops, and grabbing a timeless bucket bag before you head out for weekend adventures.
