Work a blazer on (and off) the clock!

The black blazer. It’s a timeless, must-have piece that every twenties-something working girl needs in her closet. Whether it’s paired with a pencil skirt for a 9 to 5 day in the office or worn with your favorite pair of jeans on the weekends, a decent blazer is worth investing in for internships, classes, first jobs, a Saturday afternoon out with your boyfriend or a Friday night out with your girls. A blazer is so versatile! Here, I’ll show you how to incorporate a classic black blazer into every outfit.

For a Day at the Office: For the working girl, pair this blazer (found at Topshop for $130) with matching trousers as part of a two-piece suit or a pencil skirt. Wear a sophisticated blouse and commuter chic flats and to top off your office chic look, accessorize for added style.

For a Girl’s Night Out: When you head out of the office, you might have limited time to get prepped for happy hour. For a night out on the town with your posse of girlfriends, turn your black blazer into your go-to LBD and let loose with fun, glitzy accessories!

For a Day Out: Just because it’s your day off doesn’t mean that your blazer has to sit in your closet. Put it to good use over the weekend by pairing them with your favorite skinny jeans. For a day out, work an urban look with the classic white blouse and jeans ensemble. Add a pop of color with your shoes or a beanie like this one from Payless.
