Ever had a formal appointment where a suit is not obligatory but still requires a bit of dressing up? The obvious choice for such occasions is probably a blazer. However wearing a blazer can easily end up in looking like a snobby conservative square. But it absolutely doesn’t have to. During my time in Stockholm i learned that combined in the right way a blazer can actually look really cool, while it still conveys a certain sense of elegance. Of course creating a cool blazer look starts by picking the right blazer. Make sure it fits rather slim. Besides that you can be creative. Patterns can be cool but also tricky to combine. In the look below i went with a navyblue slim fit blazer with a discreet check. I decided to combine it with a white button down shirt and a red cable knit. I don’t know what it is but these three colors match perfectly and always create a certain sense of elegance. To add some adolescent less stuffy aspects to the outfit i went for a pair of skinny jeans and cool biker boots. Certainly not an understatement but still not overdressed, this is the outfit you wanna go with when looking for something a little more but not too elegant.
