It goes formal. It goes casual. But the little blazer definitely does wonders in jazzing up a simple outfit.

It’s pretty simple. You can wear the same tank top and straight cut pants but wearing a different blazer will evoke a different look and feel. If you are feeling sloppy in just tank top and shorts, a casual blazer is all you need to make your outfit a little more elaborated.

So if you have not been investing much on jackets or blazers, it’s time to do so! For a start, get a well-cut blazer which you feel comfortable wearing. Some CLs think that only those G2000 type of business suits are acceptable in the formal corporate setting. Actually, if you mix and match well, just a simple “casual” blazer will make you look worth a gazillion bucks!

(From top left) Elizabeth and James Edwardian Blazer US$420 – Example of a well-cut basic jacket. Puffed sleeves and lightly padded shoulders with some pleats at the hem. All these are very flattering details. Stay cool in tank top and skinny jeans but never out of place when matched with a pencil skirt for the office.

Rag & Bone ‘Jem’ One Button Stretch Wool Jacket US$495 – This is a super tailored blazer. But if you wanna rock this for weekends, just unbutton it and add some chunky chains matched with jeans for preppy casual look.

(From bottom left) Moschino Cheap and Chic Blazer Jacket US$647.50 – Jackets of lighter shades are awesome for the office because you stand out from a sea of black! Instead of wearing a loose tank top, wear a white lycra top and white skirt/pants to look smart.

Mint Jodi Arnold Khaki V-Neck Jacket US$118.80 – This jacket has no notched collar but it looks smart and feminine!
