Q&A: Youthful Looks with a Black Blazer

Q:  I just bought a black blazer, but I don’t know what to wear with it to keep the young look (I’m only 15). What colors would go best with it?

Forever 21 Career Black BlazerA:  Since you’re only 15, you’re right in wanting to keep the look young.  A black blazer is a classy, sophisticated addition to your wardrobe, but it can also age your look if paired with the wrong garments. 

Create a fresh, young look around the black blazer by pairing it with dark rinse (or grey) jeans.  Add a statement top–such as a striped sweater, a graphic tee, or a brightly colored cami.  Finish off the look by adding a pair of boots and draping a thin scarf around your neck.

As for colors, any and every color goes well with black.  You can try a formal look with a polished white, or you can go bold with metallics or bright colors.  Or keep the look refined with a light grey.

Have a great tip about youthful looks with a black blazer?
