In our quest for cold weather gear, we set our sights on necessities like puffers, wool sweaters and turtlenecks. But blazers are also pivotal this time of year. They’re great for work, layering and can even double as light jackets.
You can embrace 80s mania by sporting one with super structured shoulders or boasting a boxy cut. Or tap into the corduroy buzz with textured blazers in 70s-favored shades.
Go modern with elaborate prints, crinkled fabric and unconventional silhouettes, like bomber blazers. If you’re planning on using a blazer as outerwear, look for one made of heavier stuff like wool and double breasted is best.
A good blazer is the answer to any dressing dilemma, adding instant polish to every outfit. It also happens to be the perfect topper to transition us from summer to fall in style.
Whether you’re looking to update your blazer to this season’s must-have styles (think colorful plaid and tartan) or are in need of some inventive new ways of styling your staple (we recommend pairing with your leopard-print skirt), we’ve turned to our favorite street style set for endless inspiration to take your blazer from the sweltering heat to the crisp and cool temps awaiting us around the corner.
