Every style book, style guide, and fashion leader says that every girl needs to own a blazer. But despite that, investing in a structured blazer may not have crossed your mind while window shopping because it's too serious for a college girl's style. A good blazer isn't strictly business. In fact, this versatile piece can be worn with anything in your closet. From casual denim cut-offs to fun printed shirts, we're showing you how you can make the usually stuffy blazer into your new go-to piece for always fashionable OOTDs.

For a fresher and lighter look, opt for a white structured blazer instead of the usual black. Wear it over a shirt in a quirky print and denim cut-offs to keep the outfit youthful, and perfect for school.

Pull off an effortlessly androgynous look by throwing on a black oversized blazer over an all-black tee-and-jeans combo. Finish off the look with a pair of white oxford shoes to add contrast and to keep the outfit interesting.


Blazers aren't limited to just white and black, they also come in bold colors like red, too! Paint the town red by wearing a fearless red blazer over your All-American T-shirt-and-jeans style equation for a strong, polished outfit.
