Why You Should Never Wear a Blazer With Shorts

A blazer is a great piece for any wardrobe that works well with many casual and dressy outfits but it doesn’t work with shorts and you should never wear one with shorts.

A blazer is a great piece for any wardrobe. Everyone should have a black blazer and a navy blazer in their wardrobe. Black and navy are classic colors, especially for dress clothes. Most clothing items in your wardrobe should be in those colors. If you don’t have any blazers you should get a black one first. Then get a navy one.

Blazers also work well with almost any outfit. They work well with dressy casual outfits and casual dress outfits. You can wear one with a pair of dark wash jeans and a white v neck t shirt for a dressy casual look or a pair of chinos and a dress shirts for a casual dressy look. Although, sports coats are usually worn with casual dressy outfits.

You can wear blazers with jeans, chinos, pants, and more. You shouldn’t, however, wear them with shorts. Shorts are too casual for blazers. You can wear dress shirts with shorts but blazers don’t work well with them. There are also some suits that are made with shorts but they still don’t look good. Especially when you’re trying to look professional or formal. Shorts are not dressy.

The only time you should be wearing shorts with a blazer is if you’re at a country club whose dress code calls for it. There are also some guys who wear it in magazines but I haven’t seen anyone wear it other than in those magazines.

You might also be able to wear blazers with shorts if it’s hot. The weather may be hot and in some places it might be usual for people to wear blazers with shorts or suit that are made with shorts.

Also, if you wear shorts with a dress shirt you should wear loafers. You shouldn’t wear bluchers or oxfords with shorts and but you should wear them with suits. So, if you’re wearing a suit made with shorts you should wear loafers but that’s also too casual for a suit.

Regardless, you shouldn’t wear a blazer with shorts. A blazer is a great piece for any wardrobe that works well with many casual and dressy outfits. You can wear them with jeans, chinos, pants, and more but you shouldn’t wear them with shorts. Shorts are too casual for blazers. You might be able to wear them with shorts if it’s hot and if you wear shorts with a dress shirt you should wear loafers.
