How To Wear A Blazer With Jeans…6 Outfit Ideas You Can Try!

How To Wear A Blazer With Jeans!

One of the things I talk about quite a bit, is the importance of a style uniform. If you’re unfamiliar with what a style uniform is, ask yourself…”What do I wear most often?” and “What is the combination of clothes I reach for again and again because it makes me feel comfortable and confident??” That’s your style uniform! Simply put… it’s an outfit combination that you love to wear that you know fits and flatters your body beautifully.

Depending on the season or stage of your life (ex: chasing kids around vs. empty nester), your style uniform can change. Right now, and for the past few years, my style uniform is a blazer and jeans! But instead of getting stuck in a style rut and wearing the same outfit over and over, there are ways you can change it up to make it fresh and modern…

By the way, I did a video on how to determine if you’re in a style rut that you can watch here. And then I share tips on how to get out of that rut in this video.

Tips for Wearing A Blazer With Jeans

Before we dive into some of my favorite blazer and jeans outfits, I wanted to talk a bit more about how to nail this classic combo.

  • Pay attention to proportions. If you’re wearing an oversized blazer, wear more streamlined pants or jeans. If you’re wearing a classic blazer, you can probably get away with a baggier jean style.
  • Mix styles. A blazer and jeans are quite classic and casual. Choose an uber feminine top or edgy booties to add some contrast. The contrast is what makes your look really pop.
  • Add an accessory. A blazer and jeans outfit is already a winning, fail-safe combination, one great accessory like a bib necklace or earrings is really all you need.
  • Fit for a queen! The last tip is to make sure your blazer fits you beautifully. We do a deep dive on the ideal blazer fit in this post.

Look #1 – Luxe Blazer with Relaxed Fit Jeans

This AMAZING blazer is by Balmain. It’s over the top pricey, but I think it is worth the investment if you love clothes as much as I do. I did an entire review of it here. I added edge to the more classic blazer, by wearing trendy relaxed-fit jean, a fitted bodysuit, and pointed-toe suede booties. This look is definitely very sexy because of the lower cut bodysuit… but you can always swap that out!

Look #2 – Oversized Blazer with Ripped Jeans

If you’re looking for something a little more casual, but still super chic, this is a great option! Don’t be afraid to go for a pop of color. I love how much polish and pop this longline red blazer adds to an otherwise very casual look. (I share more tips on how to style a boyfriend blazer specifically in this post.) I paired this sophisticated statement blazer with a white long sleeve tee, ripped jeans, and cute white slingbacks. You could wear this look to a weekend lunch with girlfriends or to dinner with your significant other.

Look #3 – Leather Blazer with Sneakers

This leather Veronica Beard blazer is another higher-priced blazer option but it’s SO good I own it in brown too! I snagged this one on major sale. What I love about this look is that I can take the blazer off and have a very casual, everyday look. But, no question the blazer kicked up the look a notch (or ten)! This is a simple look to recreate with items you probably already have in your closet!

Are you seeing a trend?? Jeans + Tee + Blazer = Fab Outfit!

Look #4 –  Classic Blazer with All-Black Outfit

If you’re a longtime subscriber, you know how much I love my Veronica Beard dickey blazer! This blazer is my go-to no matter where I’m going or what I’m doing! I wear it all the time with jeans, a tee, and sneakers. But in this look, I went a little dressier with an all-black date night outfit! I’m wearing a sweater dickey that zips in and out of the jacket, faux leather jeans, a black cami, Valentino belt, and classic pumps.

BTW, the leather blazer above is also a dickey blazer so you can interchange your dickeys.

Look #5 – Colorful Blazer with Skinny Jeans

If you liked the pop of color in #2, you’ll love this look as well! This blue L’Agence blazer has been a long-time favorite. The blue is SO gorgeous and unique. I kept the rest of the look pretty basic to let the blazer be the standout. I’m wearing a white cami, dark wash skinny jeans, and heeled mules. If you want to make this more casual, just swap the heels for sneakers or flats!

When in doubt with color, keep everything else in your look neutral and classic.

Look #6 – White Blazer with Mom Jeans

If you want a really awesome and affordable dupe for the Balmain blazer above, this is IT!! I have this white Express blazer in black too and the quality is so good! I’m wearing a black bodysuit, mom jeans, and heeled sandals with the blazer. This look is similar to #2, but since these jeans aren’t ripped, it’s a more polished option!

Do you see how every single one of these looks is the same combination and yet feels different? That’s how your style uniform works.
