One of my beloved seasons to play with fashion is the transitional summer-fall period when it’s still warm enough to mix and match light fabrics and chill enough to layer.
A sharp pattern blazer is always going to elevate a transitional outfit and smarten up your layered fall look. There is something undeniably elegant about a well-tailored blazer over a long dress or a modern reinterpretation of the famous Diana look. Here are a couple of ways to embrace the tailored pattern blazer and some general rules you should follow:
Elevate a classic jeans and T-shirt look with a checkered or a plaid blazer. Whether you go for an oversized masculine cut or a fitted tailored model, choose a relaxed boyfriend or mom denim fit or a pair of wide trousers.
For a cozy look, layer a blazer over your favourite knitwear piece, preferably in a staple rich fall colour or a luxe sun-washed neutral shade.
Mix and match prints and textures for a bolder statement look. Whether you choose a Breton top or denim-on-denim look, a checkered blazer will help you pull a refreshing contrasting image.
Elevate a feminine midi skirt or your favourite slip dress with a patterned blazer. Don’t underestimate the value of contrast when mixing and matching prints and textures.
