My love for the blazer started right out of college when I was working at an advertising agency. This particular ad agency was very casual when it came to work-appropriate clothing but I worked on the account management side of the business where you were expected to class it up a bit. Especially when you were traveling for work or meeting with clients. I quickly discovered my love for a great pair of skinny jeans paired with a tailored blazer and pretty much any style top you could dream up. Any time I found a great quality blazer in a store I purchased with the excuse “but I can wear it to work”. Before long I racked up an impressive selection and many of them I still have and wear today. I’ve been known to style them on a many a post too! I’ve paired them with stripes, a white graphic tee, a grey graphic tee, a classic blouse, and my favorite item to wear with a blazer, a chambray button up as seen here.
Today’s post is from a sushi date we went on last week when it was finally cool enough to wear two layers! I chose to pair the blazer with a long and thin tee that I tied on the side to dress it up a bit. I would definitely wear a blazer with a draping tee but honestly I just really wanted to tie one of those little knots in my shirt. It’s funny to me that they are trendy again since I specifically remember stretching out my shirts to knot them in the early nineties.
I love this blazer because of it’s herringbone texture, blue lining and lightweight fabric. I also found this one that is very similar and I think it is just as cute. If you wanted to switch the look and wear a grey tee with a green blazer I love this one by Everlane.
I rounded up a few other blazers I’m loving for fall. A velvet blazer is a very trendy item to add to your wardrobe right now. I found this one and this one that are not only easy on the eyes but easy on the wallet too. This blazer is also a great dressy alternative and comes in a ton of colors and I love the bow detailing on this one!
