There are a few unsung heroes in the clothing world: scarves, oxfords, long cardigans and even go-go boots. Ok, maybe the go-go boots are a bit of exaggeration, but you get the point. There are those few pieces that are so incredibly versatile but aren’t reaching their full style potential.

In terms of underrated but amazing pieces, blazers are always high on my list. From ‘80s music videos to business presentations, these jackets have been showing up everywhere for decades. Sure, when many of us think of blazers, our minds go to business staff meetings or other formal occasions. I’m here to tell you that this is certainly not the limit for them.

This Fashionista expertly demonstrates the versatility of a blazer. While her look is certainly well put together, it still gives off a casual vibe. Her simple white shirt is perfectly paired with the unique pant pattern. Her chukkas surely are incredibly comfy but also contribute a funky vibe to the outfit.

In terms of the blazer, this Fashionista chose an option that wasn’t too stiff or formal. A cotton blazer is essential for slipping on over a T-shirt or even a graphic print tank top. The navy blue color adds vibrancy to the simple color palette. A look like this is not only perfect for a day in class, but it could also work for a Skype interview or even a day out shopping. See what I mean? In the future, don’t underestimate the blazer.

How To: Want a casual look but need something to spice it up? Slip on a simple T-shirt, some pants with a cool print and a blazer. If you want a more feminine look, get a blazer in blue or pink, and slip it over your favorite dress.
