Are you finally going back to the office? Many companies are opting to open back up post Labor Day, and that means you’re going to need to spruce up your work wardrobe. But if you don’t like the office duds you bought in 2019 or early 2020 (or they no longer fit), there’s one thing you need to stock up on: the casual blazer.
Fashion influencers are making blazers casual again, wearing them with bike shorts and denim. However, if you work in a business casual setting, you can make it work for you, too. Casual blazers usually have a boxy, more relaxed or longer cut than the standard suits you see worn at the bank. You can wear them to the office with well-tailored jeans, leather leggings, sneakers, heels, T-shirts, sweaters — the possibilities are endless. All hail the casual blazer!
Of course, if you’re looking to revamp your wardrobe but you’re only in the office a few days a week, clothing rental companies like Rent The Runway, Nuuly and Banana Republic’s Style Passport are a great option also. You can rent all the casual blazers you want along with dresses, trousers, handbags and more. And, you can rent new looks every month.
However, for casual blazers you can purchase right now, take a look at the options below. H&M is chock-full of affordable options, while Anthropologie offers more unique styles. Nonetheless, all of these casual blazers will definitely make a good impression on your return to the office.
1. H&M Oversized Jacket, $39.99
An oversized black blazer puts a slightly edgy twist on the classic. This one from H&M is straight-cut, double-breasted and has decorative buttons on the cuffs. Wear it with wide-leg pants or jeans and Chelsea boots.
2. H&M Single-Breasted Jacket, $34.99
Wear this single-breasted woven blazer with jeans and a T-shirt for a casual yet elevated look. You can add a belt around the waist like the H&M model pictured above or wear it open. Plus, for the price, you could get it in a few colors.
When the temperatures drop, toss this black and white boucle blazer on. For a day-to-night look, wear it over a fitted turtleneck with leather leggings and sneakers.
4. Anthropologie Textured Blazer, $148
This is a great end-of-summer, early fall casual blazer. The oversized and cropped fit is best worn with lighter fabrics, as pictured on the Anthropologie model.
5. Abercrombie Single-Breasted Blazer, $120
Abercrombie teamed up with The Knot to create this single-breasted blazer in a soft crepe fabric. You can wear it as a set with the matching wide-leg pants and top, or pair it with a sweater tank, crop jeans and heels.
