If winter is coat season, fall is definitely blazer season, at least here at FJ. I’m always on the hunt for high-quality yet budget-friendly womens affordable basics, and Express is usually one of my top spots for just that!
Take for example this black boyfriend blazer. If you’re looking to create a casual black blazer outfit for work or otherwise, this is the perfect piece to base your entire look off of. The power of a good blazer is strong—you can take a pair of jeans to the next level with the right blazer that fits how it should. I love this Express one specifically because it’s a longer blazer, which really plays into the whole boyfriend blazer vibe. It looks amazing draped over your shoulders or worn fully, too.
To bring this look to life, I paired the blazer with Express’s Body Contour High Compression Cropped Crew tee and a pair of camel colored pumps to complete the outfit. These tops are pretty amazing—they’re like the top half of a bodysuit in the best way! So flattering and form-fitting, which makes styling them under an oversized blazer ideal. When worn with a pair of super high waist jeans like these ones from Express, the look is killer. I opted for a camel heels outfit to add a bit of contrast to the black, and it really works.
