Blazers are among our favorite pieces of all time, but we haven't been wearing them as much lately as we used to. That's about to change this summer. 

The idea of the blazer being business attire for professional settings only has been thrown out the window. Now blazers have become the perfect accessory for any outfit. And yes, we mean any outfit.

Seriously, you can pair a blazer with anything this summer, from joggers to bike shorts. Don't believe me? Read on below for five outfits featuring blazers to see how to make them work. (Note: These outfits all feature oversized, boyfriend-style blazers, which are our favorite shape to wear right now. Invest in at least one for maximum outfit options!)

Blazer Outfit for Summer #1:

Summer  outfits featuring pink blazer and nude biker shorts

Products: Blazer - Boohoo, Shorts - Pretty Little Thing, Purse - Forever 21, Shoes - Pretty Little Thing, Sunglasses - Sorella Boutique

The perfect way to welcome this trend into spring and summer is by making it bright! This bold pink blazer is sure to make a statement. With this look, you can purchase a long-line blazer or just size up so that it fits like a dress. You want the dress fit here.

Add some nude biker shorts for extra coverage underneath, and to make the look a little more casual. Top the look off with gold accessories and a pair of nude heels for the perfect brunch look.

Blazer Outfit for Summer #2:

Summer outfit featuring striped blazer, joggers, and sneakers

Products: Blazer - Pretty Little Thing, Top - Sorella Boutique, Joggers - Brandy Melville, Shoes - Public Desire

Who would have thought joggers and a blazer could pair so perfectly together? This look is perfect for the days when you don't feel like trying but you still want to look cute. 

Sometimes your sweats are just too comfy to give up in the morning and now you don't have to take them off. Throw on a blazer and some layered necklaces and look like an off-duty model walking the streets of New York.

Blazer Outfit for Summer #3:

Summer/spring outfit featuring nude blazer, jeans, and heels

Products: Blazer - MissGuided, Bodysuit - Pretty Little Thing, Jeans - Pretty Little Thing, Heels - Public Desire, Purse - Aldo, Necklace - Windsor

This is the perfect in-between look when you're not sure if the vibe where you're going is dressy or casual. The nude blazer and heels give you a look of sophistication, but the denim and white bodysuit tone the look down so you can wear the look day to day without feeling totally overdressed. You can even trade the heels for a pair of sneakers.

Blazer Outfit for Summer #4:

summer outfit featuring matching set lilac

Products: Blazer - MissGuided, Top - MissGuided, Pants - MissGuided, Heels - Public Desire, Bag - Aldo

With this look, we are stepping back into more of the traditional blazer style with a pair of matching trousers. However, you can give the look more of a twist by picking a fun color and adding a lace crop top underneath. The monochromatic look is perfect for spring and summer events like weddings or graduations (just wear a more basic top with coverage underneath for a formal event like that).

Blazer Outfit for Summer #5:

Summer outfit featuring plaid blazer and bermuda shorts

Products: Blazer - Boohoo, Top - MissGuided, Shorts - Forever 21, Shoes - Pretty Little Thing, Bag - Windsor

This look combines three big trends of the season: blazers, chunky sneakers, and bermuda shorts. This look is simple but is still a bold fashion choice. Throwing a plaid blazer over a white tank and jeans gives you a more fashion-forward look than the two pieces alone would, and can help you transition from a simple shopping day to a dinner look by adding heels.

Will you be rocking a blazer this summer?
