Plaid Blazer With Jeans

There are many ways you can style a plaid blazer with jeans. If you’re looking for a simple yet trendy look that you can wear to the office then you should give this one a shot. A flowy white blouse will look great under an unbuttoned blazer. The dark wash jeans will keep the outfit feeling more formal. Topping the look off, is the vibrant red flats. We chose red because these flats are fun and versatile, but if you’re adventurous…try out a different bright shade! Never forget to make these looks your own!

Plaid Blazer and Pants

It can be hard to imagine a blazer and pant set without thinking it’s your typical, boring pantsuit. Allow us to show you a better way! Just because you’re pairing a blazer with pants doesn’t mean it has to be boring. For the outfit below, we’ve chosen to juxtapose the whimsical and casual rust colored pants with a formal high collar tie blouse. Since both the top and bottom are solid colors, the plaid blazer comes in and adds complexity to the look.
