Blazers & Sneakers


In my post on how to wear a blazer with jeans, I mentioned that wearing a blazer with jeans and sneakers might be a little to casual for some professional work environments, but this combo can be a great option for a night out with friends or even date night with that special someone. So here is how I wear sneakers with a blazer and jeans.


The main thing is to make sure that your sneakers are minimal and clean, I tend to gravitate towards a tan or an all-white pair of sneakers. There are a bunch of options that come to mind such as a pair of Stan Smith’sVansCommon Projects, or my personal favorites, all-white leather Jack Purcell Converses.



When it comes to the blazer, this is usually the only time that I prefer a cropped blazer that is a little shorter in length. This blazer is definitely more of a casual piece because of the shorter length and it’s airy fabric (which makes it ideal for spring and summer).

Style Tip: Try rolling up the sleeves just a little bit to really exude that casual effect because even though you’re wearing a blazer, you can still dress it down and be comfortable!
