Q: How Do You Pair A Red Tuxedo Blazer?

I love getting asked by friends and family how to pair items they own different ways. One of my favorite parts of fashion is styling looks, so I was excited to share when a TSS reader, Sheri, asked how she can pair her new red and black tuxedo blazer.

The great thing about a red blazer is that the bold hue is such a statement piece. Throw it on over basics, and it’s the ultimate fashion update. There are endless options to pairing this piece, so I put together three looks to show you how this piece will surely expand your wardrobe, using pieces you might already own.

Blazer: DSquared  /  Top: Mango  /  Denim: Paige  /  Earrings: BaubleBar  /  Handbag: Mango  /  Boots: Forever 21

This look puts a trendy spin on your most simple basics. An ankle boot is can be sported year round, and simple embellishment is a sleek touch. This look can be worn for day or night.

For days you want to be comfortable, yet chic, riding boots are key. A black jegging gives the look of comfort, without looking sloppy. Complete your look with a simple silver boyfriend watch.

A textured blouse is a great staple to pair with bold pieces. A trendy cap toe heel, and shimmery clutch make this look night time approved.

Thanks for your question, Sheri! I hope this gives you inspiration to pair your blazer endless ways!

If you have a style question or need inspiration or an item(s) in your closet, send them my way!
