I am obsessed with blazers. I love wearing them in all seasons & moods; styling them for all of the trend cycles. So, it’s only obvious that I love blazer dresses. I love their classy blazer cut complemented by the full-outfit potential they have. Well, except in 2020, they’re just a bit more than your regular blazer dresses. Since autumn-winter 2020 is all about layering, it’s time to layer your blazer dresses, too. So, I put together this fashion update article to share tips on creating the perfect AW2020 blazer dress styles.
Choosing the right blazer dress for yourself is a lot like choosing a blazer. You have to stick to the button/breast/shoulder basics. Additionally, also focus on how it sits on your waist. A blazer dress looks best with a cinched waist fit because that’s what distinguishes it from a regular blazer.
Before we go further, let me tell you that the key pieces used for all the following looks are from my partner site SHEIN. I’ve used many of their high quality/ premium blazer dresses from their site. You can find the direct shopping links to the items by directly clicking on the pictures or right below them.

And finally, the most important point to know about the AW2020 blazer dress styles is that you can use your blazer dresses in literally any way you like as long as it is layered. Layering could be with jewelry or with a separate bottom piece. Confused? Let me walk you through the evolution below.
4 Layered Blazer Dress styles for AW 2020:
1. Classic Jewelry layering
If you want to stick to the classic route, style a statement blazer dress with a statement jewelry piece. Like the Satin blazer dress, I paired here with a rhinestone choker necklace. The dress is perfect for a cocktail soirée or a date.
2. Duochrome patterned layering
A patterned blazer dress is literally the most perfect autumn piece you can have in your wardrobe. It’s evergreen and versatile, too. For my look, I styled it ina duo-chrome pallet of white & pink with a white turtleneck under a classy pink patterned blazer dress. Also added a matching beret for the ultimate Parisian vibes.
3. Peplum-hybrid layering
Another Blazer dress style that has been hitting it big since 2019 is the hybrid blazer dress which extends to a midi skirt. Honestly, I think they’re so chic and classy, you can’t help but fall in love with them. I styled this grey blazer midi dress with a white turtleneck inside it. I also have a statement choker in the look to make it look even more elevated.
4. Top & bottom piece layering
A blazer dress can well be worn as a blazer but what will keep it distinguished is if that layering is also done in a way that retains the dressy silhouette. For this look, I chose a distinct floral blazer dress with accentuated shoulders and styled it a white turtle neck and a voluminous tulle skirt for that beautiful silhouette.
A blazer is all about the fit. So, is the blazer dress. The look of it is only as flattering as the choice of it meticulous. So, before you make your purchase, I recommend checking out this article I wrote about how to choose the perfect blazer, too.
