A black blazer can be very versatile, as it goes well with pretty much any other type of clothing. You can dress it up with dress pants and black shoes, or down with a pair of faded jeans and sneakers. No matter what you combine it with, it adds a touch of class without being formal. Whether you go for a tight or relaxed fit is up to your own sense of style.

Traditionally, black is worn in fall and winter, but these are old fashion rules that no longer have to be respected.
A black velvet blazer for men can be a very hip addition to a young man’s wardrobe, filling both a formal and casual function depending on what you wear with it. Keeping you velvet blazer looking like new takes a little extra work. If your blazer needs to be cleaned, check the clothing label for cleaning instructions. If for some reason there is none, bring it to a professional dry cleaning service for consultation and never iron your velvet blazer as this will permanently damage the velvet pile.

Having one or more cotton blazers hanging in your closet at the ready for when you need to upscale your casual wardrobe is great for those impromptu dinners with a client or a night on the town with a new girlfriend. That being said, make sure that you clean your blazers every now and then whether they look like they need it or not. And if you are unsure of how to do this, simply follow the instructions on the care label or take them to your local dry cleaner.

There are certain must-have items that every well dressed man should have in his wardrobe, and the casual blazer is one of them. For those social situations when you want to look good but not necessarily dressed up, the classic pairing of dressy jeans, oxford button down, white canvas sneakers or loafers and a blazer will have you looking sharp yet definitely casual. And remember, if you are going to wear dark jeans, contrast that look with a light colored blazer.
