From suit vests to trouser and tee pairings, we’ve played around with many versions of deconstructed suiting this year. A blazer dress is among the pieces we’ve earned a new appreciation for. As we haven’t had much reason to dress up—with offices remaining closed—we became masters of pairing down our tailored suiting to achieve a more casual look. But as holidays roll around, we’re now flirting with the idea of returning to a more formal dress code. While a sharp blazer over skinny ankle-zip pants is always safe, how about leaning into something sexier? Enter the blazer dress.

A blazer dress is a perfect piece to wear from the office (or satellite meetings in the remote office of your choosing) to post-work holiday parties or festive nights out with the girls. For work, pair it with a chic loafer, maybe over a turtleneck too; then just slide into heels for your night out. Either play it safe with a classic black blazer dress or turn up the sexy dial with some side or back cutouts. Maybe you want a more festive option? Consider playing with textures, like a blazer dress in velvet, silk, or glen plaid. While usually it comes in a mini, there are some styles that fall below the knee if you don’t want to be all legs just yet.

And for the blazer dress’s biggest party trick? Its versatility allows it to be paired down and worn open as an oversized blazer with jeans for when the clock strikes and your carriage turns back into a pumpkin. You’ll surely get your money’s worth with this one. Below, we’ve rounded up the 26 best blazer dresses to shop now.
