blazer blowout and gift guide

other than denim, there is nothing i’ve featured more on the blog this fall than a blazer.  i’ve worn them with sweaters, turtlenecks, and denim boilers to name a few.  i’ve dressed them up.  i’ve dressed them down.  earlier this fall, i put together a guide on how to wear a blazer.

blazers have been the single most talked about and purchased item i’ve featured this year.  i figured, let’s keep the trend going.  on YouTube today, we’ve got a new entry into our fashion squared series.  here, i show you multiple ways to wear a classic black blazer. make sure to check it out; i know you’re going to love it.  

today here on the blog, i’ve put together what i’m calling: the fall and winter blazer blowout and gift guide.  it’s a collection of all the ways i’ve worn a blazer this fall.  at the end of the post, i’ve also put together a little gift guide of a wide variety of different blazers—from the classic black to plaid.  i know you’ll find something you love.    

preppy all the way

what goes better with a blazer than a shirt and sweater? this is a really fun preppy fall outfit.  i’ve paired a Talbots plaid blazer with an Everlane cashmere mockneck layered on top of a J.Crew stripe shirt

with slacks

and don’t forget the chic but classic look:  a blazer paired with with slacks.  blazers can be dressed down, for sure.  but how good do they looked dressed up?  this is a perfect outfit for date night.  dinner, theater, or a movie anyone?

with a turtleneck dress

i got a lot of use out of a blazer this fall during my French river cruise.  here, i’ve paired a classic black blazer with a turtleneck dress.  and don’t forget a little color pop.  how fun is this scarf?

with a sweater

a blazer with a sweater.  so simple.  so easy.  so classic.  so chic.  it’s probably the easiest way to wear a blazer:  casual, but not too casual.  you can get a lot of mileage with this look.

with a sweater again

another black blazer with another sweater.  see.  i told you.  you cannot go wrong with this look.  so many variations:  the sky is the limit.

with a tee and denim

how fun is this tweed blazer?  is it still warm where you are?  pair a blazer with a tee and denim.  i wore this outfit when i visited my middle kiddo in NYC earlier this fall.  make sure to check out that that post is you’re looking for travel tips.

with a boiler suit

perhaps one of my more controversial outfits of the fall:  a blazer with a boiler suit.  i just love the flexibility of a boiler suit.  i wore it on a plane to NYC, and then paired it with a blazer to head out to dinner with my son.  nothing like outfit reusability when you’re trying to travel light.

with animal print

and the classic black blazer again, this time with animal print.  i’ve been all about the animal print this fall—leopard in particular.  such an easy way to spice up an old classic.

    Great video & tips! How do you determine which length blazer to wear with pants/dresses/skirts? Is there a rule of proportions that you follow?

    Do you go up a size on the blazer so you can wear it over a sweater & blouse?

    Do you need to buy the blazer a size larger so you can layer a sweater & blouse underneath?

    I love that today, we can wear denim almost anywhere and still be chic. And blazers/jackets are my downfall–I have a lot, but I try to purchase quality so they last forever. I think they really make an outfit pop. You look mahhhhhvelous.
