Fall Style Preview | Blazer Outfits

Let’s talk about blazers today.  If you think they’re too dressy for your everyday, or it’s been awhile since you’ve bought one or worn one, then it’s time to get back on the blazer bandwagon.  They have the power to turn an ordinary t-shirt and jeans into something extraordinary.  With fall just around the corner, it’s the perfect time to try one in place of your standby cardigan.

First, some Pin-spiration.

Camel + Chambray

The relaxed vibe of a soft chambray shirt is perfect under a camel or tweed blazer.  Pair it up with black jeans and your favorite animal print heels or flats.



Olive + Boyfriend Jeans

Olive is one of the “it” colors for fall.  Try the trend with a fitted blazer, boyfriend jeans, an over sized scarf and some oxfords.




Navy + Stripes

This classic combo is timeless and works for every season.  For a fall vibe, try it with a cognac tote and a printed scarf.



Red + Leopard

You just can’t go wrong with red and leopard.  Add your favorite chic riding boots to complete this fall classic.

For the Work Wear Challenge, we styled a beige blazer a few different ways.  One favorite was with a blue oxford, dark wash jeans, bright flats, a statement necklace and a leopard belt.
