Sure, it can be easy to forget how versatile the classic piece is when you're scrolling through endless photos of statement tops. But we’re here to spark a little creativity and remind you that black blazers can be just as exciting as a bold-colored or printed jacket. Because with a bit of styling know-how, it's simple to make the piece stand out for almost any occasion. Ahead, we're sharing 11 fresh ways to wear a black blazer this season, whether it be for a dinner, get-togethers, work—wherever—you're sure to look sharp.

Oversize Black Blazer

Volume on volume is often considered too much of a good thing, but lately, it’s totally a vibe. Try styling an oversize black blazer with a tailored yet slouchy-fitting pair of trousers and a crop tank for a result that's anything but stuffy.

Black Hourglass Blazer

When you’re feeling a moment that's tailored on top but cozy on the bottom—sort of like your Zoom call uniform—an hourglass blazer with ribbed pants is a super fun play on volume. If you’ve got to wear shoes, make it a graphic pair of woven slides so you can easily slip them on for midday coffee runs or a low-key meetup.
