blazing old trails | ways to wear a blazer

if you’re a regular here on the blog, you know i’ve been obsessed with blazers this fall. they’re fun, fashionable, and flexible. there are so many ways to mix, match, and mashup blazers with your preexisting wardrobe. invest in a blazer or two this fall, and you’ll be able to refresh large swaths of your closet just like that. blazers pair perfectly with denim, pants, blouses or tees.  you really can’t go wrong.  in case you’re looking for ideas or want to see how i’ve worn a blazer this year, take a look opens in a new windowhere, opens in a new windowhere, or opens in a new windowhere. but to make your life simple, today, i’ve compiled 3 ways to wear a blazer this fall.  

with a hoodie

an easy way to spice up a blazer is to pair it with a hoodie.  just like Goldilocks: not too formal, but not too casual. whether you’re headed to work or out to the movies, this look has you covered.  literally. i’ve compiled this opens in a new windowhoodie and opens in a new windowthis one for some great pairing possibilities.

when temps drop, i pop on a wool blazer for extra warmth. this is one of my all-time favorites by opens in a new windowNordstrom similar opens in a new window here or opens in a new windowhere. the short blazer, long hoodie, and longer tunic is a perfect silhouette for a cold winter day. if by chance the thermometer decides to inch up it’s easy enough to shed a layer.

with a turtleneck

a opens in a new windowsleeveless turtleneck is a timeless classic and a perfect layering piece. nothing says “elegant” quite like it. what’s even better, though, is the flexibility of the sleeveless turtleneck. if the temps decide to warm up on you unexpectedly, as they are prone to here in Athens, just take off peel of your layers and you’re good to go.

this opens in a new windowboyfriend blazer from  opens in a new windowJ.Crew is my style crush. love the oversized fit and longer length. it’s the perfect jacket when temps are bouncing from the fifties in the morning to seventies by late afternoon. and i have to admit i’m a sucker for the traditional herringbone pattern.

with a t-shirt

when i want to dress chic but comfortable, i chose a pair of opens in a new windowhigh-rise jeans and a graphic tee. graphic tees never go out of style, and there are so many fun ones from all of our favorite designers.  (and don’t forget about consignment shopping for some retro tees as well!)
