A blazer is something every guy should have hanging up in his closet. Ideally, every guy would also have a second blazer stashed at the office for those last-minute important meetings. It’s a staple style piece that will work year-round and is so versatile it will look sharp with virtually anything you pair it with. Plus, its tailored silhouette lends a masculine appeal to your upper half.
Here’s how to style it up, depending on the occasion:
*If you need a professional vibe, wear it with a tie.
*If you’re looking for a business-casual twist, throw on a t-shirt underneath.
*If you want something classic, layer it over a turtle neck.
*If you want something sporty, go for a zippered hoodie and some laid-back kicks.
