Fashions come and go. The blazer and jeans combination, however, has withstood the test of time, with just a few subtle changes over the years. The key to pulling off this look is to be polished, but casual, by giving some thought to paring jeans with the right blazer. Since shoes also can make or break the look, go for the casual look and be selective if you decide on dressier shoes.
Choose a fitted pair of jeans and a tailored blazer. Consider the wash of your jeans and create a polished look by pairing dark-rinse jeans with a blazer. Pick a blazer in a classic color like navy, black, brown or gray.
Consider where you'll wear a blazer and jeans. For a night on the town, men can wear a graphic T-shirt under a blazer. Women can opt for a v-neck top or plunging neckline. In a casual, professional setting, like a networking event, choose a fitted button-down shirt or blouse but don't tuck in the shirt. Unbutton the top couple of buttons for the casual look.
Leave your blazer unbuttoned. Top the look off with the right shoes. Men should wear contemporary sneakers or loafers, not dress shoes. Women can wear ballerina flats, fashionable sneakers or heels.
