Blazers and sport coats are both casual jackets, whereas a suit coat is meant for formal occasions. Blazers are traditionally made of thicker and more sturdy material than a suit jacket. Sport jackets are traditionally made of rabbit or deerskin for wear in the countryside. The possibilities for wearing your blazer in both spring and summer are virtually endless.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Put your blazer over a brightly or lightly coloured polo in warmer months. To complete the outfit, wear it with a pair of linen trousers and loafers.

  2. 2

    Wear your blazer over a button-down shirt in the summer. A blazer over a button-down in linen or cotton is a classic combination. Add a tie for a slightly more formal invitation, and forgo it during the day. You can pair it with khakis and Chuck Taylor sneakers for a casual look.

  3. 3

    Wear the blazer over a cotton turtleneck when it's cold outside in the spring. Turtlenecks provide an extra layer of coverage and warmth, and adding a blazer over it spices up the look with a bit of panache and classic style. You can wear jeans with this look and lace up boots to mix casual with a slightly more dressed-up upper half.
