There is something so effortlessly chic about a blazer thrown over just about any outfit. I love pairing a structured black blazer with a white tee and denim, or over a dress for meetings. It’s truly the best from work-to-dinner piece that can make any outfit look more polished.

I recently scored this classic blazer and these relaxed Levi’s jeans at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, and plan to wear this look from now until well into the fall. A blazer adds polish to any outfit, and I always get compliments when I wear one, even if it’s over a plain white T-shirt (as seen here). Finding one that fits you well is totally worth the investment because you can style it in many different ways depending on the occasion. If you’re heading out to a nice dinner swap the mules in this look for heels, or if you work in a more professional setting, simply ditch the denim for a pencil skirt or a midi dress.

If you’re wondering what color blazer to get, you can’t go wrong with a simple black one that can be worn year-round. I am also a fan of white blazers (especially for summer) which you can see styled here, and of course classic navy blazers (the one I’m wearing also comes in navy) which you can wear into the fall over a cozy grey sweater and camel brown accessories.
