3 Ways to Style a Sweater Blazer

Sweater blazers are the perfect balance of professional and comfortable. I’ve worn mine more times than I can count, since I first purchased it right after the new year. I’ve also received numerous compliments on it–which tells me that it’s a winner all around.

I purchased mine from J.Crew Factory at a great price. It’s made of a soft, but heavy cotton fabric, and I really appreciate the hearty fabric. Despite being so affordable, it doesn’t feel at all cheap. There are variations of this same sweater blazer also available at Madewell and J.Crew–both are equally chic and high quality.

Knowing how much wear I’ve gotten from this piece, it seemed a perfect candidate for one of the February #WKLoveYourCloset features, and I really love the way each of the stylings came out. Below, you will find this, your newest wardrobe staple, styled for work, weekend and a night out.

For Work: with a pair of suede black pumps, and a silk bow-neck blouse.

The best part about this piece is how professional it looks, making it ideal for workwear. Though mine was purchased in grey, you could even “up” its professionalism by purchasing it in a darker color, like black or navy, which will make it look even less like a sweater and more like a blazer.

For a Night Out: with leather pants, a satin tank, and strappy heels

To be honest, these faux leather pants aren’t ones you’ll want to wear in 70 degrees, but they make for a sharp date night look on cooler evenings. A simple, black silk tank and a pair of stiletto heels dress up the casual feel of the sweater blazer. I included a long, layered necklace–one of my absolute favorites from Stella and Dot–to add a small bit of bling. (Typically, when dressing up, I usually opt for layered chain details than jewelry with crystal or gem like features.)

For the weekend: with a graphic tee, leather mini skirt and sneakers

With the beautiful weather we are currently having, this is an absolutely perfect combinations for weekends. A comfy graphic t-shirt, a mini skirt and pair of comfortable sneakers make for an easy yet totally chic outfit for getting out and about.
