How-To : Blazer With Jeans

marcjacobs-irregular-navyblue-blazer.jpgSo now that you’ve learned that you must absolutely have a navy blue blazer, you’d want to learn how to pull it off with jeans. The blazer with jeans combo is pretty much considered a 21st-century classic. A lot of male celebrities have pulled this off quite successfuly. Well some of them anyway. Justin Timberlake is one of them. He epitomizes the blazer and jeans look, in my opinion. Due to this, you might feel you must as well embrace it and pull it off yourself. From the subtle approach to the bold one, you can’t go wrong. Unless you missed this post :)

BEGINNER:
A blazer over a collared shirt with jeans and loafers or sneakers is a good way to start.

INTERMEDIATE:
Spruce up a navy blue blazer by wearing a gingham-check shirt. For texture, add a knit-tie. Wear a dark wash jeans for an added contrast.

ADVANCED
Go bold by opting for a velvet-corduroy blazer with moleskin pants and suede loafers. Texture, texture, texture, texture. That’s how a well-dressed man does it :) .

      Another great How-to article. I think the dark wash jeans is a must with a dark navy blazer. I also prefer wearing it unbuttoned for a more casual look.

      Thanks Justin. Unbuttoned blazer with a graphic tee is a casual look every Men should master. It’s a great “everyday” outfit, IMO.

      Are men allowed to wear tennis shoes and jeans anymore? I’ve read and heard it’s a fashion faux pas. And that the “Fonz” appearance (tee shirt and jeans) is now “dressing like a douchebag.” Does it depend on the type of tee shirt, jeans, and sneakers (not brand, but if it advertises a brand, band, saying, or sports team) or is it because it’s not a suit men are taking flak for casual wear?

      The casual job interview is such a mind-trip for me because I know how to dress for a formal interview: I grab my most expensive, fitted and dark suit and rock it like a million bucks. Shiny shoes, silk tie, the works. But now I am trying to master this because I have to show up at a casual interview this weekend. Do I go jeans and polo? Blazer and jeans? Decisions, decisions…

      I’m not a guy but I love Justin’s blazer-jeans-sneakers so much I emulate it quite often, with adaptations to women’s clothing, of course. I love love love love it and am deeply turn on by men who pull that look off.
