Q&A: Youthful Looks with a Black Blazer

January 10th, 2008

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?

    Black blazers also look young and “hip” with the sleeves pushed up to the elbows and tank underneath. It looks really effortless with with skinny jeans and flats. Even better with slightly messy hair, maybe a soft wave or a sloppy bun.

    Excellent suggestions, Wendy! The pushed up sleeves make the look effortlessly gorgeous–perfect for a young woman.
