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?
A: 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.
