How to Style a Sleeveless Blazer

Similar Sleeveless Blazer // T-Shirt // Pants // Heels // Similar Handbag // Necklace


The hotter the weather, the harder it is to dress professionally for work. If you work in a business casual work environment the sleeveless blazer is the perfect item for you.

While I unfortunately can’t wear sleeveless blazers to work; I can wear them on my rarein my office’ days or on weekends. I have been wearing this long black one non-stop! I love the functionality of having pockets but not having the added bulk of a full blazer.

Whether you choose to dress up a sleeveless blazer for work or dress it down for an evening/weekend look, I think there is one important tip to rocking this item of clothing. Balancing your proportions

By that, I mean pay attention to the length of your sleeveless blazer. If you are wearing skinny pants, as I am here, you can opt for a longer length blazer. If your bottoms are fuller though- like a midi skirt – stick to a sleeveless blazer that hits at or above your hips. In the widget below I’ve rounded up my top picks for sleeveless blazers (at every price point). Enjoy!

    I just love, love your effortless and chic look! As much as Iwas on the fence about long vests for the longest time, I've been loving them lately.
