Here’s How to Style the Blazer Trend That’s Ruling the Fall Fashion Scene Right Now

Everyone loves a good blazer. Whether you’re looking to secure that bomb internship for the summer or are just going out for a quick cup of coffee, a blazer can take your outfit from a solid 6 to a trendy 10, ASAP. It instantly dresses up whatever you could find in your closet that morning (laundry day is such a chore) and makes you look as if you’re a put-together college woman (hey, we can pretend, right?).

Blazers have become more than a way to dress up your basic outfits—now they have become the outfits. With statement pieces overflowing the market this fall, now blazers have become the main attraction of any outfit. Want to strut down the street and look like the boss woman you are? Here are a few blazers that will accomplish that.

Who said menswear is just for men?

2018 is about not only breaking boundaries but shattering stereotypes. Our favorite celebrities—like the inspirational Lady Gaga for example—are doing so by pairing blazers usually made for men with their own interpretation. By reclaiming this fashions style so often made exclusively for men and making it into her own power move, Lady Gaga has shown women everywhere that there is no need to dress like your typical women. Dress how you feel.

Know that plaid is everything

What was once the pattern of our dreaded school uniforms has now become the go-to pattern for any fashionista this fall: plaid. It’s an eye-catching pattern that is sure to complete any piece you wear. Because it’s such a busy pattern, make sure the rest of your outfit is understated in order to accentuate the plaid piece. Much like Bella Hadid above, maybe pair your new favorite plaid blazer with a graphic tee and simple pair of dark ripped jeans.

If you’re looking to be a little more daring with your choice of blazer, it’s time for you to dress up and show off that attitude. Whether you’re seeking some sneaky cutouts like Priyanka Chopra above or you want an out-of-this-world print, fall is the time to exercise your last risky fashion choices before you have to hibernate in your favorite parka for the winter.

If you want a risk-taking but still relaxed outfit to wear to your favorite brunch spot, try this autumnal blazer, white cut-out skirt, and simple bandeau.

Feel velvety smooth

As the cool fall temperatures hint of a dangerously chilly winter, you may want to bundle up against the cold but still look fashionable while doing so. Velvet blazers are the perfect solution to this conundrum. Not only will you be feeling warm, but you can also accessorize and dress up a casual outfit just because you’re wearing a velvet blazer.

Want to try this trend out? Grab this blazer, a pair of light-washed jeans, a simple white tee—and a beret, if you’re feeling like taking another fashion risk.
