3.) Black blazer on grey pants: Black and grey, when combined with a shirt, tie and shoes is great for any formal event. However, you can also wear them at non-formal occasions. They are also appropriate for nights out. If you want to dress realistically but look dapper, try exchanging your shirt and tie for an easy t-shirt or polo, and your dress shoes for something more casual, such as leather loafers or trainers.

4.) Tweed blazer on denim pants: This is great for those who like a not so clean approach to their individual style. To create an outfit, we suggest teaming with a pair of trendy Chelsea boots and a textured shirt for a casual look, adding a tie and leather brogues for smart-casual events.

5.) Colored blazers on white pants: No matter the color of blazer you opt for, pairing it with a white pair of pants/jeans will give off a classy and sophisticated look. To create your outfit, pair your fitted pants with sockless boat shoes and a t-shirt for an evening out on holiday.

Then switch to a cutaway collar shirt, solid tie and loafers for a summer wedding reception. You should consider your skin tone when choosing a color of blazer to wear. Luckily, Nigerians are blessed with versatile skin tones that work with just about any color.
