When I first moved abroad and came back home, I struggled to fit all my clothes into 4 suitcases and 2 boxes {even though I was only away for 1 year}. Looking back at that time, I remember being frustrated with all the things I had accumulated. Since then, I found myself being able to let things go quite easily. My worry was accumulating so much and then feeling too overwhelmed with dealing with anything. So now, when it comes to items in my closet, I only pick out things that can be styled in multiple ways that I can wear season-after-season and don’t feel too bad about lugging it across multiple countries if I need to! Introducing my grey blazer. A subtle pin stripe that is made up a cotton and wool blend material that is warm in the cooler months and just fine in the warmer months. So here are three situations, three occasions, three outfits, one blazer and tips on how to wear a grey blazer.

How to Wear a Grey Blazer for Errands & Coffee Dates

I usually lump all my errands and cake/coffee dates in one day every two weeks. I usually am out and about anyways, so I play catch up with people I haven’t seen in so long and with people I’ve been meaning to sit down with. Pro tip: if you’re doing multiple coffee dates, start with a normal coffee and have a decaf or mint tea afterwards. You can also opt for a one shot lattes {they usually have two}. Usually when I’m on the go, I try to be as comfortable as ever, but since I’m meeting people, I want to look semi-put together. A breton tee and jeans are my go-to, so though on a grey blazer on fun trainers to spice everything up a bit!

How to Wear a Grey Blazer for the Office

This is a simple one, but I wanted to spice up the way I wear conservative pieces for the office. Soon after moving to DC for my first big girl job, I found my closet gradually depleting of color and personality. Everything was in the shades of navy, grey and black. I started collecting more statement pieces to break up the boring palettes. What’s great about how to wear a grey blazer is that it goes with anything and you can pair it with a vibrant print and/or color to break it up!

How to Wear a Grey Blazer for Date Night

I used to think that blazers were strictly for the office, but if you have a blazer that is stitched like a tux then it cinches the waist and shows off your curves in the most flattering way. I love to take an ultra feminine outfit like a mini skirt and sweet blouse or a slip dress and throw on a blazer for an androgynous edge.

If you’re still wondering how to wear a grey blazer, I have more and more options, but these three are a great start in my opinion.
