Since blazers come with many buttons, it’s important to choose ones that match the fabric and other items of clothing you will be wearing with them. If you are going to wear cardigans or fleece throwovers, you will want to choose coordinating checkered buttons. If you are wearing a vest, choose button styles that don’t show any lace up. For outerwear, stick to solid, plain colored fabrics such as cotton, wool or silk. Don’t mix and match fabrics or buttons because they won’t look right.
To dress up a basic blazer, wear a solid colored cardigan and a matching jacket in the same color. Or, wear a solid colored cardigan and a plaid patterned jacket in the same shade of the color. Or, wear a solid, cotton undershirt and a plaid patterned jacket in the same color as the cardigan. The patterned look is a fun way to dress up a plain, solid jacket. A striped blazer is a great option for men’s wear during the colder months of the year because they usually contrast well with darker trousers and jeans.
Women can choose a long sleeve or short sleeve blazer.

For instance, a woman who wears a sweater and jeans will wear a blazer that is three inches shorter than her dress pants. If she were to wear dress pants and blazer, her jacket would need to reach up to about the elbow length.
For the summer, women are able to choose between a blazer in a solid color and those with patterns or prints. For example, a woman may choose a striped turquoise jacket worn with a pair of jeans and a brown leggings. It is possible to find a striped leggings with a patterned or printed leggings as well. Additionally, women can choose a solid, navy blue leggings and a striped navy eight 3 double-breasted blazer. The leggings and jacket look great together, but if worn alone, the striped leggings give it a much more relaxed and casual look. The double-breasted blazer provides enough coverage to conceal any shirt that may be underneath without getting any extra creases in the clothing.
Women can also wear the classic striped look with patterns such as polka dots. These patterns provide a fun and flirty look that is still elegant and sophisticated. The most popular pattern includes a variety of small circles and ovals that circle the neckline of the blazer. In addition to this, there are many different designs such as chevrons, vertical stripes, and horizontal stripes. A simple change in the print or design can transform a traditional blazer into an informal piece that looks like it was specially designed just for her.
