How to Wear a Red Blazer

Wearing red can be a dilemma! Many people shy away from this bright color, but it's more versatile than you think. Adding a red blazer to your wardrobe gives you a statement piece that will make you stand out. If you have a red blazer that youve been dying to wear but you arent sure how, use neutral colors to make your blazer pop, keep it classy by dressing it up, or be daring and pair it with an all red outfit.

  2. Wear your red blazer with a t-shirt and jeans to keep it casual. A red blazer can seem like an intense piece to wear, but if you want to keep it casual, pair it with a neutral t-shirt and jeans. Relaxed jeans will give you an even more casual look.[10]
