Class to Night Out: Sequin Blazer

Blazers: 1, 2

Do you struggle with transforming your outfits from day to night? Don’t worry, CF is here to help turn that daily annoyance into a fun challenge. Class to Night Out focuses on one piece per week, and aims to help you take your look from study sessions in the library to dancing the night away.

We’re deep into the holiday season and on our way to New Year’s Eve, and that means it’s time to wear lots of sparkle! This week, I’ll be showing how to incorporate a sequined blazer into wardrobe, with looks for both day and night.

If you think you can’t pull off a sequin blazer for class, or even a night out on your campus, don’t worry – it can totally be toned down for daytime! The day look is perfect for a family holiday party or a day of shopping with the girls, while the night look would suit your most formal holiday gatherings. (Or even a Classy Christmas-themed party!)

Still interested? Let’s take a look at the outfits!

Sequin Blazer: Class

To dress down your red carpet-worthy blazer, layer it over a collared sweater in a fun, Christmasy color. Next, add a pair of classic dark wash skinny jeans. This keeps the look formal while giving you a distinct casual elegance. Tall black riding boots and a matching quilted messenger bag add some laid-back sophistication, while simple gold studs lend a tiny extra touch of shine to complete the look.

Sometimes, mixing textures can be tricky, but this look plays it right because all the textures contrast in subtle ways. To get a look that’s ready for a holiday party, wear your blazer under a cranberry red dress with sheer detailing for a look that’s quintessentially Christmas. Add texture (and warmth!) with a pair of floral tights, and accessorize with a festive deep green cross body bag and rhinestone-embellished pearl earrings.

    I love the second look, it blends a color of the season with shine without looking gaudy.

    I agree with Tiffany. And I love the sweater in the first one, but I just don’t know how well sequined blazers fit in with class. It seems too dressy. :(

    I love all the looks, especially the second one! However, I think the first look would look more awesome with similar-looking-shirt instead of a sweater… The sweater material would be too ‘clunky’ to pair with a waist-defining blazer like the one pictured above. And the long sleeves of the sweater would peek out, something I’m personally not quite fond of. :)

    Btw, love the matching jade bags for both looks! :D

    Honestly, I was under the impression that sequined blazers were a bit too bold, but you’ve convinced me otherwise. I really love the “night out” look in particular. The juxtaposition of the classic, feminine dress with the funky blazer is perfect – thanks for the inspiration!
