What looks good with this blazer? Would it only be used for very formal events?

Maybe I'm too old fashioned. But, I can't visualize this on anyone but a lounge singer in a run-down off-off-strip Vegas club. Ruffled shirt and large black bow tie. But, I live in the Midwest USA - perhaps there are areas of the world where this type of jacket is actually still worn.

Clean white shirt, black pants. You'll look good for holiday parties or at a cocktail party. Black pants/black shirt would look alright as well.

You could wear it at a black tie event. White shirt, black pants, black bowtie. And black velvet loafers.. You would be a badass peacock.

Thank you all. Does this have any casual or practical use? I just bought it and am debating whether or not to return it. A couple of friends told me to try it out and stated it looks great on me, so I ended up purchasing it without thought.

I would honestly recommend returning it if you can. Its a weird thing to wear unless as a dinner jackets. Beyond which INC is a Macy's private label brand of dubious quality.
