Pair with jeans and a tan sweater

Easy blazer style

The beautiful Hailey Bieber inspires this outfit. Together with my blazer, I'm wearing a cream mock neck sweater, and I pulled the sleeves out from underneath. The sweater is easy to layer, especially if you live in a cold environment like me, you can wear long underwear underneath, and no one would notice! I'm wearing high-waisted mom jeans that fit so snug! They are also ripped at the knee - which is really stylish. I paired them with a stunning pair of tan boots with a black toe. I tucked my jeans in to give it that slouchy effect, and I accessorized this look with a brown leather bag and a pair of hip sunglasses.

If you're having a relaxed set up, then this look is for you! If you want to be comfy but look cute, then the easiest way is to pair a sweatshirt with a pair of sweatpants.

I folded the sweatshirt upwards so that I don't look frumpy. Since I'm petite, I need to be careful with oversized items. Next, I added a pair of dark brown chunky sneakers and, of course, my handy blazer. As you can see, the blazer elevates the whole look. I finished off the look with a NY hat and put my hair up in a bun with a scrunchie. I just love this blazer style!

Pair with a black striped shirt

This is a semi-casual look. I'm styling a black blazer with a classic black and white striped shirt with a button-down plain black sweater over. I paired it with these blue Levi jeans. I love this regular denim color; I feel like this is a staple item to have in your closet because it's a classic denim color. I put my black blazer over and hid the collar from the sweater that I'm wearing underneath.

So, basically, what you see is the blazer's collar. This is so cute, it surely is functional as it keeps me warm, and I just love the overall look. It's totally cute! I wore plain black ankle-high boots with this outfit. It definitely gives it a more elegant vibe, but you can aim for a more casual look by wearing plain white sneakers if you want to be super comfortable. Also, for a more sophisticated feel, loafers would look exquisite with this outfit.

Pair with leather pants

Date night, here we come! I personally think this outfit just gives off the "wow" factor. Even though everything is black, I opted for different textures to give a chic, uniformed look. I'm wearing a ribbed black bodysuit and snake-skin textured black leather pants. This time, I wore the blazer a little differently; I draped it over my shoulders, giving the outfit a more elegant vibe.
