Different Ways to Style a Blazer

by Mitchelle Uzorka 

What Is a Blazer?

A blazer is similar to a suit jacket but is cut a little looser and often has stylized metal buttons that make it better for casual outfits. Whereas sports coats have patterns that coordinate with pants, blazers tend to be solid-color jackets with contrasting buttons. Blazers are highly versatile and customizable, making them easy to go with many different outfits.
