Ah, blazer—the understated hero of our wardrobes! They're a must-have in every working girl's closet and the new favorite of street style stars. Whether you're heading to the office or to another country with a cooler clime, blazers make for an easy third piece that will make your outfit instantly polished. But if you're growing tired of pairing them with your tees and jeans, take style notes from fashion blogger Laureen Uy and learn a few other style tricks!
1. Tucked into shorts
Check blazer as a top? Yes, you can! Tuck it into a pair of paperbag waist shorts and don't be afraid to play with prints. The bolder the patterns, the better!
Give your turtlenecks a break and wear your tracksuit zipped all the way up instead! Under a plaid blazer, natch.
3. Worn under a jumpsuit
If you're ready for a more advanced layering technique, Laureen has a clever styling formula you can follow: a plain white tee + a check blazer + a one-shoulder jumpsuit. Don't worry about looking bulky especially if you're somewhere cold. Do mind your prints, though—double the tartan and you're good to go!
