last fall, i put together a women’s guide on how to wear a blazer this fall. that’s because, well, blazers are one o of my favorite items to wear, and they’re also probably the single most popular item on the blog. over the years, i’ve worn them with sweaters, turtlenecks, and denim boilers to name a few. i’ve dressed them up. i’ve dressed them down. i’ve worn them every which way. so, i’ve decided to refresh that guide, because in reality, blazers never really go out of style.
for those of my regulars, you’ll know that my go-to aesthetic is preppy. i’ve featured it a lot this fall and even wrote an entire post about opens in a new windowfashion confidence and one’s own personal aesthetic. i’ve paired a plaid blazer with an cashmere mockneck layered on top of a stripe shirt.
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?
here, i’ve paired a cashmere turtleneck dress from opens in a new windowEverlane with a blazer. blazers make my #4 essential items, and i put together a fall guide to blazers opens in a new windowhere. you can match this look with a pair of boyfriend jeans or skinny jeans. either works perfectly. and if distressed jeans aren’t your thing, no problem. just make sure to check out these low heeled booties from opens in a new windowEasy Spirit.
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.
fall is all about the layering. and one of the best ways to layer is with a blazer. you all know how integral blazers are to my wardrobe. they’ve been featured heavily on the blog over the years. (see older posts opens in a new windowhere, opens in a new windowhere, and opens in a new windowhere.) and they’ve also made several appearances on this month’s opens in a new windowfashion flash over on YouTube. here, we’ve got 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.
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.
and the classic 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.
