Boyfriend blazers are a trend we got behind big time this Spring– and it doesn’t look like they are going anywhere anytime soon. Whether you’ve invested in a $300 one, or are in the market for a new one, we’ve got some blazer-centric outfit ideas that you’ll need to get through the rest of the summer and fall.

Start with a black blazer with rolled sleeves like this Halogen Boyfriend blazer ($128). The length and tailoring of this style make it super flattering.

For now:

Wear boyfriend blazers over bright or patterned summer dresses and with high heels like model Miranda Kerr, and The Hills gals Lauren Conrad and Kristin Cavallari did.

If you love the black and white geometric dresses that Kristin and Miranda wore – try the look at home with this cool Remain Knit dress ($68).

For a nighttime summer look, go with a strappy black heel like these sexy BCBGeneration “Angelique” pumps ($110).

For later:

In the fall, pair boyfriend blazers with skinny jeans, long tees and pretty much any shoe you’d like – we prefer ballerina flats.

Pair boyfriend blazers with extra long t-shirts like this Joe´s Jeans Knit top ($82) for a casual daytime. You will love the deep v-neck and little pocket.

The best jean style for pairing with blazers is the skinny jean, because you want to balance out the wide shoulders with a slim pant. These Joe´s Jeans “Cigarette” jeans ($158) are great for everyday – the weekend wash is versatile.

Top of the cool, weekedn look with these girly Candela Black Crocco Leather flats ($64.35, down from $99). Wearing feminine accessories makes blazers look less mannish, and even more chic.
