30 Ways To Wear: A Cream Jersey Blazer #30wears

For this month's 30 ways to wear post, sharing a piece that it seems to have taken a while for me to reach 30 wears on, this cream jersey blazer from Zara. Last month it was a purple cardigan, so I hope you don't mind me picking another piece of outerwear this month! The winter weather in Brisbane has me thinking of layers!

30 Ways To Wear: Cream Jersey Blazer


30 ways to wear zara cream jersey blazer #30wears | away from the blue blog


I bought this jacket second hand back in 2015, so I've had it 3 years. An average of 10 wears a year isn't bad, especially considering for a year and a half in there I was on maternity leave and wasn't reaching for my blazers. An ebay find, it was $30.50 if you include the overpriced shipping the seller charged me. At 30 wears, it's just over a dollar a wear.

I bought this because I had the same blazer in black and was thrilled to find another colour of it. Whether you call it a jersey blazer or a knit blazer, it's so soft and comfortable to wear. As I tried it with more outfits in my wardrobe, I've realised that this cream / beige / oatmeal colour isn't ideal for me. I definitely haven't loved every outfit I've made with it. My sister likes it though, so I'm passing it onto her.



Jersey Blazer and Lace Pencil Skirt

This is definitely my most worn piece with this blazer. This blue lace pencil skirt is such a fun piece to wear to the office, and always gets a lot of compliments. The base material is a nude colour that's similar to the cream jersey of the blazer, so it's an easy pairing. It lets me add more colours to the rest of my outfit too, with bright accessories.


Beige Blazer and Burgundy Pants

When I put these posts together I look back at all the ways I've worn things and try group them into sensible categories. It was obvious these burgundy pants would be a category of their own, I do love wearing this blazer with them! I like the neutral cream with the burgundy, a nice colour pairing.


Cream Blazer and Monochrome Outfits

While the blue and burgundy above look great with this blazer, they aren't the only colour combinations I like to try. Being a beautiful neutral that goes with pretty much everything, I like to add this blazer as a layer to a monochrome or monochromatic outfit. From an orange dress, navy top and skirt or a peach two piece set, this blazer works wonderfully.


Beige Blazer and Printed Pieces

Sometimes you just want to wear a fun printed piece without thinking too hard. That's when neutral pieces like this jersey blazer are perfect, as you know the cream shade won't clash with any printed pieces. While it's nice in the office with printed skirts, it works well with the fun statement leopard print jeans for SAHM style too.


Neutral Jersey Blazer and Print Mixing Outfits

As I mentioned with the printed pieces above, this neutral blazer is a great companion to prints. Being a basic neutral colour and style, it allows you to be a little more adventurous with your outfit and try some print mixing too! In these three outfits, I kept it simple and cosy by using a printed scarf as a topper for the outfit and as another print.


Jersey Blazer In The Office - With Printed Dresses


5 ways to wear printed dresses with neutral cream jersey blazer for the office | away from blue


As you've seen in the previous outfits, this blazer gets pulled on over a lot of prints! For the office, it's a quick and simple addition to a printed dress. Being a jersey material, it's comfortable enough to wear all day at your desk when the aircon is running a little cold, and it helps tone down any print to make it look more professional.


Jersey Blazer In The Office - With Pencil Skirts

Pencil skirts are a staple workwear option for me, so of course this blazer has been worn with a few of them. Just like the outfits above, I've picked this blazer to wear on top of these outfits as they feature printed pieces, and it's such a good neutral. The blazer also works to make a casual sleeveless summer tank more office appropriate.


Blazer And Jeans

A blazer isn't just for the office though! The final way to wear this soft jersey blazer is with jeans. It helps to make you feel a little more pulled together than say a cardigan, but is still just as comfortable (and a little warmer as it's lined). The neutral colour works with any colour of jeans, and while I've mostly worn it with skinny jeans it looks great with a pair of flares too!

  12. Love seeing all the different ways you have worn this blazer. Also great price for it to. Most of my blazer cost me 50 dollars. Now they just sit in my closet seen I don't wear them any more but don't want to get rid of them.

    Have an amazing week.

  20. I like how consciously wearing all the clothes in your closet has helped you to decide when something isn't working for you. You definitely got your money's worth from it, but if you still don't feel great about wearing it it's good that you can pass it along to someone who may like it more. I struggle with this color too, being so fair-skinned, but I do like the more colorful combinations you made with it!

  25. What a fantastic challenge! This is such a wardrobe staple with so much versatility. I really like the relaxed feel of jersey type blazers versus more structured ones because they'e so much softer and the silhouette usually works really well both dressed up or down.

  31. I'm super-impressed that you got this many wearings out of it, Mica! Well done! I'm not a huge fan of this colour (oatmeal is for eating, not wearing, lol), and I do agree that a more off-white/brighter version of this would be a better colour on you. Beige is just so...ugh, not a clothing colour that appeals to me, I'm afraid. I really love all your outfits, however!

    1. Thanks Sheila! I will keep my eye out for a similar blazer in a different colour, as I think another shade would be better. Plus I have the black one so that will get worn instead!

I am really impressed with how often you've worn it since 2015. 10 wears each year is great! I don't think many of my clothes can claim that. Hopefully your sister gets just as much wear from it!
