Style a Blazer with Layering Options 

You've decided on a blazer and jeans, but what will you wear under your blazer? It depends on the occasion and the look you are trying to achieve. 

You can wear a dress shirt for a swankier look or make it more casual with a t-shirt, a henley, or a sweater. 

What Color is Best for a Blazer for Men with Jeans?

Jeans are pretty versatile when trying to coordinate color, but when pairing with a blazer, choosing the right color is critical. If you're trying to play is safe, navy is your best option. It goes with a wide range of shades of denim. 

A gray blazer is another great option. Whether you're matching up charcoal gray with a medium denim color or a light gray with dark jeans, that look works. 

Another great choice for a blazer with jeans is tweed. Tweed has some dimension and is a very sophisticated look that works well with denim. 

In the summer, consider a light taupe cotton blazer with a round neck tee and jeans. 

Dress It Up or Down

Whether you're dressing it up or dressing it down, it's important that your blazer fits well. If it's too loose, it'll look frumpy and out of place. If it's tailored too tight, it will look strange with jeans. 

For a dressy look, choose a button-down shirt with a pocket square. For a more casual look, pair it with a solid color t-shirt or sweater.
