Blazers, considered to be a part of very formal wear worn by men above 55, are now starting to become a wardrobe staple. Though a black blazer is still worn for semi formal or formal events, colourful blazers are making their presence felt as the more casual and laid back cousins of the classic.
Yes these colourful blazers are worn with chinos and other such pants, but did you know they can be worn with jeans as well and look equally smart? Let us look at some combinations.
Black and Blue:
Black blazer with a dark blue pair of jeans gives a very laidback yet a formal look. This combination is perfect for dinner with friends and family going to a slightly formal lounge for an evening of whiskey on the rocks.
One of the most preferred fabrics for winter, tweed jackets are to die for. Wear a tweed jacket with a pair of dark blue denims and a pair of boots. A tucked shirt with a tie or a cardigan looks the best under the jacket. Accessorise it with a pocket square!
Pastel and Light Shades:
Men should opt for colourful blazers which have soft colours. Wearing a bright orange or a blood red jacket may make you like as if you managed to loot a theatre. Light pink, light blue, white, light grey look the best when worn properly. These colours match very well with denims and make you look as sophisticated as is possible in jeans. Wear these blazers with a tucked shirt. More of day look with light colours, accessorise your outfit with sunglasses, a golfer’s cap and a pair of chukka boots. Wear a light coloured scarf or a stole around your neck to complete the look.
With winter upon us and the festive season in full swing, why stick to the dreary dark grey and black? Inject some colour and fun into your wardrobe and watch how it transforms your mood on a cold morning, too!
