How to style a men's blazer
There will continue to be an ease to dressing, which is why a blazer is ideal: it is season less and transitional all year round. Softer, more relaxed silhouettes, according to the stylists, will be popular for this reason.
An expert mentioned that he's seeing a lot of oversize blazers, roll-up blazers, and even cropped blazers on his radar. "The hounds tooth pattern is in, [as is] the jacquard pattern, [along with] a lot of that '80s funk appeal," Vice says. Hounds tooth (also known as dogstooth) is a classic pattern made up of pointed shapes that are typically black and white in color. Jacquard, on the other hand, is a finely detailed, raised pattern that is usually woven into a fabric.
Color ‘mix and matching’ for blazers
Remember that orange is a complementary color to blue on the Color Wheel, so an orange blazer will look great with blue, black, or grey jeans or pants for a casual, but super-trendy look. There's also a definite trend for resurrecting the 1970s fashion of wearing orange and indigo-blue or purple together.
So, for a unique look for a special occasion, try an orange blazer with matching trousers, a purple silky T-shirt, and purple shoes.
