How to Wear a Blazer with Jeans

Sometimes you find yourself in a situation in which wearing a suit would be too formal, but wearing jeans would be too casual. You can find a happy medium by pairing jeans with a blazer. The key to pulling off this look is to avoid too much of a contrast between the casualness of the jeans and the formality of the blazer. We'll give you the skinny on this trend and how to accomplish it with big and tall clothing. 

Choosing Your Jeans

For this look, the colour and type of jeans are important, so you should start with the jeans. You want your jeans to be very dressy so they don't contrast too much with the formality of your blazer. Dark-coloured, clean, trouser-esque jeans work best when paired with a blazer. Generally, you want very dark jeans, as light-coloured jeans look too casual. Avoid faded, distressed, baggy, or old-looking jeans, which are also too casual to complement a blazer. Look for form-fitting jeans with a tapered or straight leg. At George Richards, we have large men's clothing and jeans that fit well, look great, and work well with this look.

Pair Your Jeans with the Right Blazer

This outfit usually works best when there is a distinct contrast between the colour of the jeans and the blazer. If you choose dark blue jeans, avoid a blazer in navy or a similar colour. Darker blazers can work well, especially those in burgundy, dark-brown, or dark-green. Lighter colours, such as grey, also work well with dark jeans. You're likely to love the selection of blazers we have here at George Richards.

Pulling the Look Together

What you wear under your blazer is as important as the blazer itself. The great thing about this look is that you can dress it up or down. Dress up the look by adding in a dress shirt and tie. Avoid materials that look too formal, like silk ties. You can also wear an open-collared dress shirt or sports shirt without a tie. For cooler weather, a long-sleeved turtleneck goes great with this look. Although a T-shirt is too casual to wear with a blazer, a stylish, crew-neck shirt can work. We have dress shirts, sports shirts, and a wide variety of large mens clothing to choose from to help you get the look you want.
