Mix it up with two blazer styles and infinite ways to wear them. These designs are from the April 2014 issue of Burda Style magazine. See our styling tips for these staple pieces.


This mini collection has two jackets, one simple and one detailed. Switch up the Boucle Jacket with Trim with a bright pink boucle and white trim for summer, or go for a traditional blue or black. An easy way to style this fancy jacket is with a simple white blouse and tailored shorts. Show off your legs for summer in the Pleated Shorts, or get a little more coverage with bermudas. Sneakers and stud earrings finish the tomboy look.

To femme up the look, just add a pop of bright red lipstick and a sleeker bun! This outfit and hair combo takes you from the office to dinner.


Patchwork jeans keep the Jersey Blazer casual. Make similar pants yourself with the Denim Trousers pattern.


Dress it down even more with a pair of overalls and a tee shirt.


You can also take the Boucle Jacket with Trim in a rocker direction. Add some patterned shorts, like the Rolled Up Shorts in polka dot or animal print.


One of our favorite ways to wear a blazer is with a pretty dress. The contrast between masculine and feminine styles always looks modern. Slip the Jersey Blazer over a classically girlie style like the Romantic Maxi Dress, Bib Dress, or Poplin Dress. These detailed styles all look fresh in solid colors, like cream or sky blue. It’s a polished but casual look for spring parties.

A blazer you love will become your go to piece for pulling a look together. Pick a simple or embellished style, or make both to really cover all your bases!

Happy sewing!

    Wow! Love this jacket. Grey tweed is my favorite. So many projects and so little time.
