Blazer dresses fall into the "best-of-both-worlds" category of wedding-day style. As the name suggests, they have the hemline of a dress (perfect for hitting the dance floor in a statement shoe) and the classic tailoring of your favorite jacket silhouette. Furthermore, it’s a fashion option that can speak to all sorts of brides-to-be.

Think of the blazer dress—sometimes referred to as a tuxedo dress—as a modern style for untraditional or less formal affairs. For those already committed to a gown for the big day, blazer dresses also work well for after-parties, welcome dinners, City Hall nuptials, or a flirty look for your bachelorette night out. 

The 25 sharp, lapeled options below all have crisp silhouettes and, yet, uniquely interpret the hybrid dress design with lace, embellishments, and plunging necklines. Ahead, find the one that suits your taste.
