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.
Considering a blazer dress for your wedding? We’ve answered three common questions brides have when shopping for this dress style.
- What is a blazer dress? Blazer dresses, or similarly tuxedo dresses, are a hybrid design that includes classic tailoring details—such as lapels, and single- or double-breasted buttons.
- What kind of wedding calls for a blazer dress? Ultimately the decision is personal, but you might consider a short, tailored dress for an untraditional or less formal affair. You can also opt for a blazer dress for an after-party or other wedding-related events.
- Is a blazer dress simply just an oversized blazer? Not necessarily. Many blazer dresses can fit as properly as a dress, and also feature elegant detailing, like lace linings, decorative buttons, and waist-cinching sashes.
