If there is one article of clothing that I am so happy hasn’t died in any trends, it is the blazer. There is just something so right about throwing on a jacket for work, play, errands, whatever it may be that takes an outfit from simple to polished in three seconds flat. The key to the art of the blazer, however, is finding the blazer of all blazers that works for any situation. Thankfully I recently discovered the one – it goes by the name of the Olivia Moon Knit Blazer and it is perfection. Allow me to list my top 5 reasons why:
1. It is under $50 [yes, it’s true – it’s currently 40% off making it a steal for how versatile it is!]
2. It comes in a big ole variety of different colors and patterns!
3. It is a knit blend which makes it feel like you are wearing a sweatshirt yet it isn’t bulky.
4. It can be worn a thousand different ways – for work, for dinners out, for baseball games and the list goes on!
5. It is hands down the most comfortable blazer that fits just like you would want a blazer to fit. Not too long, not too short, not too fitted, not too loose.
To prove it’s amazing unicorn factors I decided to put it to the test by styling it three completely different ways so we could all see how to put this bad boy to use.
Let’s start with work —
You can easily throw this blazer on over your favorite dress or button up shirt for a more distinguished look around the work place. Or in most cases, for a way to stay warm in your freezing office [but seriously – why are offices always negative thirty degrees below?!] In the outfit above, I used the blazer to add a pop of color to my classic black and white look which is always a fun way to make a statement. This blazer is also great for adding shape to what could be a shapeless outfit. It would totally work with dress pants or a skirt as well. Winning.
Next up, we have the “I’m going to the grocery store, my son’s baseball game or Saturday Farmers Market and I want to look like I tried just a little bit but not a ton” look. That’s a real style – look it up sometime 😉 For this I simply paired a graphic tee with distressed jeans, simple white tennies and dressed it up with this same ole Olivia Moon knit blazer and a statement necklace for a “wow – she really does have a sense of style!” fake out.

I love how comfortable and relaxed this outfit is while still looking cute and presentable.
For the last how to rock a blazer outfit, I went with the always works, never fails night out on the town classic black blazer look.

To keep things a little less office-y and a little more fun, I paired the blazer with a comfy yet little bit sexy v-neck swing tank, skinny jeans and my favorite ankle strap heels in bright pink. This is a great date night or girls night out outfit that will never go out of style.
